Fire n Ice Returns for One Night Only!
Monday, 28 April 2014 11:29

If we were to go through the debris that remains from the down fall of Fire N Ice, we’re pretty sure we’d find an old boyfriend buried in there somewhere, a first kiss, a flaming viper shot, people frozen in mid-dance, DJ Skazi and maybe even you?

Well let the excavator help you out, dust off your debris and listen to this: Fire N Ice, that institution of a nightclub – warning: this Scouter always gets a little too gushy about it, she has in the past called it our Studio 54 and what not- one of the first inhabitants of High Street Phoenix, returns for a one-night only pop up to Tote on the Turf this Wednesday, April 30.

Fire n Ice founders Vishal Shetty and Ketan Kadam are partnering with Moustache events to re-create the club for one night. The event will be spread across 25,000 square feet (including the restaurant area), reserving each space for a different kind of Fire N Ice night, featuring commercial, trance, techno music from that era. Also joining the reunion will be a bunch of Fire n Ice DJs including resident DJs Steve and Lloyd; Karan ‘Third Eye’ Bhoj’ Pearl and others. There will be a projector throwing up pictures of Fire n Ice from the past – be prepared to cringe at that image of you in leather pants – and a wall where you can leave a message.

The Music Sounds Better With You

But the fun bit, the element that’s really going to transport you back to the days of Fire n Ice is…you. Mickhiel Pinto, founding partner at Moustache & Network Prive says, “There’s a guest list – the whole Fire n Ice crew that used to visit the club  -that will be there to celebrate. “ And besides the nostalgic, this night is also for those who have never been to Fire n Ice. “There’s also a whole generation that has heard about the club, but never been. The idea is to re-create Fire n Ice for one night only,” Mickhiel tells us.

Us, we’re gathering the troops already, and reaching for the highest shelf in our wardrobes to bring down the old leather pants that will hopefully still fit. See you on the dance floor!

Getting there: Fire n Ice pop up at Tote on the Turf on April 30, to RSVP call 9820011811, Rs 500 (no cover) if you enter before 11 pm, Rs 1,000 (no cover) if you enter after 11 pm. View the Facebook page here.
