A groundbreaking trailblazer in Singapore’s nightlife scene, Zouk still ranks amongst the best clubs in the world.
You know you’ve achieved legendary status when hardcore clubbers from around the world know your name. Since opening its doors in 1991, Singapore’s longest running club has become an institution in and of itself.
“Attention to detail has never been spared at this uncompromising venue, which single-handedly put Singapore on the world clubbing map – and continues to do so today. I have quite a long history playing this special venue and it has truly evolved into an established and internationally recognised brand,” world-renowned DJ Dubfire once said. Zouk’s stellar reputation has been sealed by a bevy of famous fans who all sing its praises, such as superstar DJs Paul van Dyk, Pete Tong and Martin Solveig.
This awesome sentiment is further underscored by an endless stream of international accolades that the mega club has received over the years, which include the title of ‘Nightspot of the Year’ awarded by the Singapore Tourism Board for an unprecedented eight times. Zouk is also currently ranked #5 in the DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs Global Poll 2013, which is recognised as the industry authority for global club rankings.
Unparalleled Party Experience
The legend lives on after more than two decades – a remarkable feat in a fickle industry that bores easily – thanks to a magic formula comprising a loyal following of die-hard fans, tourists who have been told that there’s no better place to party, world-famous DJs who helm the decks weekly, and a commitment to service excellence, complemented by Zouk’s astounding ability to reinvent itself to give clubbers an unparalleled visual and audio party experience each time.
Meaning “village party” in Creole, Zouk is sprawled across three restored warehouses and boasts five conceptual establishments: Wine Bar, an al fresco pre-party pit stop, Zouk main club,definitive hip hop haven Phuture, and Velvet Underground – Lounge and Velvet Underground – Dance. The latter two offer a more sophisticated clubbing experience.
Zouk continues to propel Singapore to the forefront of global clubbing culture by continuously pushing the boundaries and offering an innovative and progressive environment, as cutting-edge interior design meets the state-of-the-art analogue Gary Stewart sound system specially customised for each room.
It most recently revamped Velvet Underground and unveiled in its place a new concept: the exclusive Velvet Underground – Lounge and Velvet Underground – Dance, where the party happens amid cool digital art and original artwork by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Romero Britto and Keith Haring, which are on display from the personal collection of Zouk’s owner, Lincoln Cheng.
Week in and week out, Zouk hosts internationally renowned DJs and artistes like Avicii, David Guetta, Carl Cox and Laidback Luke. Meanwhile, Zouk’s own resident DJs like djB, Lincey, Jeremy Boon, Ghetto, Adrian Wee, Hong, Ming and Matthew have been making waves worldwide at gigs like Space Ibiza, Pacha Ibiza, Amnesia Ibiza, and Green Valley Brazil.
The Ultimate Music Festival
For the past 12 years, Zouk has transported its definitive subculture to the great outdoors via ZoukOut, the ultimate dance music festival that draws tens of thousands of local and tourist party-goers to the beaches of Sentosa Island each year. ZoukOut 2012 took place over two nights on the beach for the first time, and featured a string of world-famous DJs including the likes of Above & Beyond, Calvin Harris and Major Lazer who energised the crowd amid a visual and lighting bonanza as fireworks lit up the night sky.
“ZoukOut is the one event everyone talks about… its reputation is legendary,” said superstar DJ Erol Alkan, who has also played at ZoukOut in previous years. A phenomenal hit year after year, the event perfectly personifies Zouk’s “One World, One Music, One Tribe, One Dance” philosophy.
