Home of hip hop and house….
Few clubs in Asian Heritage Row have managed to stay open for long. Blanc Le Club, Atrium, Bar Savanh, Bed have come and gone. To its credit Maison has managed to stay the course despite the challenges of fickle crowds, the emergence of newer flashier entertainment areas and a waning economy. Just off the main AHR thoroughfare, this cavernous two-storey club is located in a series of converted colonial homes. The area’s grand dame, the large white mansion is beautifully lit on the outside and entrance is by way of a red carpet.

Against a backdrop of raw red brick walls, Maison plays host to four bars, a booming sound system, LED lights and a huge dancefloor. While its tagline is “Beauty has a beat”, its beat is predominantly rnb, hip hop and non-threatening club hits. Nevertheless it has hosted some interesting nights, the occasional visiting DJ and has a loyal crowd. Besides the look-at-me garden-seating out front, there are plenty of places to kick up your heels with ample seating downstairs and nests of couches and armchairs upstairs.
