CANVAS
1/5

CANVAS

It was truly the end of an era when Home Club closed its doors and turned into Canvas – but the multi-purpose concept space is living up to the legacy of its predecessor. Stepping away from Home Club’s dark and edgy vibe, Canvas is like the versatile, grown-up version with a mellowed sophistication; it offers a platform for artists to showcase their music and art, as well as a spot for creative minds and party-goers to mix. With three resident DJs at the helm spinning nu disco, house and techno, the club’s regular nights include NoProhibit for house, UK funky and electro, No-Name for house, garage and nu disco, and Foundation with the beats of bass, house and techno.

For spectacular, panoramic views of the city skyline at sunset, head straight to this rooftop club lounge.

From club hits to house grooves, guest DJs grace the decks alongside resident DJs every month to bring you the beats.

Zouk

The grand dame of nightclubs in Singapore, Zouk prides itself on being the longest-running dance space known for hosting some of the biggest names in EDM. It’s pretty much a coming-of-age ritual to lose your clubbing virginity here. Split into three rooms – Velvet Underground, Phuture and Zouk – the club welcomes hoards of revelers every week with international acts including past ones like Avicii, Hardwell and Steve Aoki. Also known for the ‘80s dance phenomenon that is Mambo Jambo (which occasionally makes an appearance at special holidays), Zouk has been a mainstay on DJ Mag’s list of top clubs for years, and placed our Little Red Dot on the global map with the year-end annual party everyone looks forward to, ZoukOut.
