'447' - Colombo's biggest restaurant cum nightclub
'447' is a new, purpose built club and restaurant opening at the end of next month at Union Place in Colombo, its promoters said.

Bridging the gap in entertainment and nightlife in Sri Lanka and abroad is what Gehan Fernando and Dinesh Wijesinghe, the two main initiators of '447' are hoping for.

'447' will be one the largest clubs in Sri Lanka, with a capacity of holding 1000 people at a time. It has a VIP area on the mezzanine floor, which includes a wine bar, cigar lounge, a 70-feet long bar and will cater to an older clientele. The menu will be based on a sophisticated grill theme and will be open for lunch and dinner. The club will cater mostly for the 18-35 age group and it will have probably the most unique dance floor in Sri Lanka - a glass dance floor with water underneath. The music will be strictly DJ music in the club whereas the restaurant will be more of a jazz bar.

'447' is managed by Global Leisure Management (Pvt) Ltd, and it will be the first project of this relatively new company, of which Fernando and Wijesinghe are directors. An investment of Rs 35 million has gone into this project.
