Slate At The Row Hosts Events That Will Have People Talking For Months

“What’s the emergency?”

“I need a big space at a strategic location, equipped with air conditioning, TV and catering for my upcoming event FAST!”

Okay, that’s a lot to take in but we’ve got the perfect venue that fits all your needs! Located in the hustle and bustle of KL, just off Jalan Sultan Ismail is Slate. It sits in between the twenty-two newly revamped 1940s shophouses at the Row KL which accommodates a slew of retail shops, galleries, cafes, bars, restaurants and offices.

We’ve personally been to this gorgeous space and even held our CLEO TV launch there. To know what made us fall head over heels with this location as soon as we laid our eyes on it, read on.

Minimalist And Rustic Designs

Although it's a 70-something-year-old building, you won’t see broken pipes dripping rainwater or deep cracks creeping through the walls at Slate @ The Row. They’ve undergone refurbishment in 2015, so their space has no ravages of age, except some of the rustic architecture that were retained purposefully to give it character.

Natural Lighting For Good Pics

What we LOVE about Slate is how light and airy it is. A large part of the building is covered with floor to ceiling windows to allow natural light (exactly what we need for striking pictures!). Rest assured that your guests won’t be scorched by the sweltering heat as the building is draped with vines of greenery.


Taking the LRT or monorail? No sweat! The stations are just a few minute's walk away from the venue - Image: Courtesy of Slate The Row FB

Easy Access To Transportation

The aesthetics alone is enough to take your breath away but the main selling point here is how accessible this place is. A few metre's walk from the Medan Tuanku monorail station or Dang Wangi Station is all it takes to reach Slate. And if you’re driving, no fuss over limited parking! There are plenty of options: parking spaces at the side of the road, Sheraton Petaling Jaya Hotel or the open space car park (RM 6 full day) just right behind.

awesome catering services

Smooth travelling = happy guests. Now, keep that happy mood circulating with the services Slate has to offer! The first thing we Malaysians associate with happiness is, of course, food. While they have a myriad of partner caterers to choose from, you can also get nosh from neighbouring restaurants that serve anything from French to Malaysian cuisines. There will be one that suits the pickiest foodies, for sure.

Decent Size For Medium Events

Sprawling at a decent size of 3,300 square feet, Slate can accommodate up to 180 pax seated with tables or 250 pax standing. It’s the perfect size for medium-sized events, so your guests have just enough room to socialise. Speaking of events, they handle all kinds – akad nikah, annual dinners, corporate functions, exhibitions, fashion shows, fundraising events, marketing events, media launches, press conferences, weddings and even bazaars!

Bazaars are fun but not when it’s under a hot spell! So, bring them indoors to the comforts of air-conditioning and you will see more people filling their shopping baskets instead of fleeing home to take shelter from the heat. Many markets have chosen Slate as their location, with notable ones like The Sunny Side Up Market and the Food For Good Market.
