The Butter Factory celebrates its sixth birthday this Saturday and promises that the bash is going to be one helluva flight! Needless to say, who else takes fun so seriously?
The Butter Factory taught me how to party. True story. Growing up in an alcohol-conservative environment, clubbing was sort of a taboo. This utterly explains my somewhat guarded and awkward maiden experience in a club when I was first declared legal. A long time later, I gave clubbing another try and tagged along with my trusty friends to The Butter Factory at its current location at One Fullerton. I was ready to have some fun and guess what? I had a little toooo much fun.
Downing some hardcore shots at the mercy of a wicked mix of party tunes had sent the party newb (aka me) on a slippery slope to downright ecstasy. And there was NO turning back. In my own little world, I became the queen of the dance floor and I rocked myself silly. With the beat of the party still lingering in my toes, I stumbled out walking zig-zag at the end of the night while grabbing gleefully onto my trusty mate.
That night, The Butter Factory explicitly illustrated to me the meaning of its mantra that all patrons must have fun – no hang-ups, no attitudes, no tightie whities. Everyone should get stupid, let loose, shake every asset possible and just have fun.
Carving a distinct identity in its lopsided perspectives and notorious party habits, The Butter Factory has grown to become a club synonymous with bold and ground-breaking party blend of hip hop, RnB, urban grooves, alternative vibes and street art.
Titled Turbulence, The Butter Factory’s birthday bash this Saturday takes on an airplane flight theme that jetsets its party-goers around the world in one night of good ole’ plane fun. Safety is one heavy baggage that is left behind as loud music, mental dancing and turbulence will be expected. The trolley dollies only serve the best in-flight alcoholic refreshments that will lead you to one helluva ride. The catch? You’ll never know where you’ll end up.
Confirming this, The Butter Factory Marketing Director and Co-founder Celeste Chong shares a hilarious party experience called ‘Puke Angel’…
“This happened in the early days when we were located at Robertson Quay. Slightly before midnight (before the place packed up), there was this girl who was really drunk and did not make it to the toilet before hurling all over the dance floor. When she tried to walk to the toilet to clean up, she stepped right into her puke, slipping and falling backwards and lying flat on her back in her own puke puddle. Because she was really drunk and wearing heels, she struggled for a good few minutes trying to get up, flapping her arms and legs (like how one does when making a snow angel). Obviously nobody dared to help because she was covered in puke. By the time the cleaners got to the spot, there was barely anything to mop up as the girl had absorbed everything in her own hair and clothes!”
This said, The Butter Factory believes in creating memories you won’t remember. I’m pretty glad I hung on tightly to mine.
