A few years ago, Club Silk was among the best hangouts in Uganda, hosting some of the biggest events like the street jam, several international artistes’ after parties among others but the club has been dying in series.
First it was Silk Royal that was closed with the owners claiming that they were renovating it, then Silk Oxygen followed until neighbouring New Vision bought off the building.
Many thought this was the end of Club Silk not until recently when we got a tip that the hang out will soon be opening up its doors in the outskirts of Kampala on Metroplex building in Naalya, on the same building that houses Nakumatt supermarket.
New Vision decided to buy off the building in order to save money they were using to rent for their advertising and marketing offices right by Jinja road just opposite the police building.
However, before they closed off silk Royal, they started up Liquid Silk in Bugolobi which has been struggling on some days except weekends.
This leaves Guvnor, club Play and the new Establishment as the only night spots in industrial area on 1st and 2nd streets.
