Lord of Drink started three years back in an area of 9,600 sq/ft. The club can accommodate 2500 people at once. At the moment, the club has also generated employment for 150 people.
A few months ago, the club came into nationwide fame when former King Gyanendra Sha visited with his family. The ex-royals also vibed with the enthused crowd in Nepali songs. This certainly upped the for the already popular club inside the country.
LoD has become a benchmark for entrepreneurship and a pillar of club entertainment in Nepal. No doubt to say, it is marked for its distinction from the rest. The club featured internationally acclaimed DJs such as Romeo Blanco, and Twin Rave. Residence DJs Redmus, Suren, Saroj, Anish, etc. also drive the club-goers to groove to their tracks.
LoD starting franchises beyond the streets of Thamel
LoD has also strived to make the club family-friendly to change the perception of nightclubs in Nepal’s fairly rudimentary mindset. Meanwhile, the success has forced the club to start franchises in other cities beyond the capital, Kathmandu.
There is news that the club is in plans to extend its franchise in Pokhara, and Butwal in the first phase. Whereas It is almost sure that they will launch another such club in the Eastern region, most probably Birtamod.
