In conjunction with the upcoming World Cup 2014, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel took the opportunity to pay tribute to the late Wong Choon Wah, who passed away earlier this year. In his heyday, Choon Wah was one of the best midfielders produced by Malaysia. Malaysia’s soccer greats including Datuk Soh Chin Aun, Santokh Singh, Dollah Salleh and ardent football fans showed up and spent a few solemn moments honouring their comrade.
To mark the beginning of a month long soccer celebration for all nations of the world, the hotel launched Mezzo Bar & Wine Lounge as the World Cup 2014 venue with plenty of extra time before the first match. Exclusively for the launch, samba dancers and capoeira performers added a splash of Brazil and brought on the party atmosphere.
Throughout the World Cup season, Mezzo Bar & Wine Lounge will be offering beers and bar bites from around the world. Guests who patronize will have the opportunity to win free Marriott and Renaissance Hotels’ stay around Asia with the Grand Lucky prizes of 4Days/3Nights at JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi inclusive of return air tickets for two persons, 3Days/2Nights at JW Marriott Hotel Phuket and a BURG Phone Watch.
