Zouk Singapore, our city’s longest running entertainment institution, has bid goodbye to its beloved Jiak Kim premise and moved into its new home at Clarke Quay. Housed within the Cannery Block and spanning across two floors, the Zouk complex retains its signature main dance room along with Phuture while Wine Bar has been upgraded to Red Tail restaurant and bar. Velvet Underground, sadly, is nowhere to be found although there is a soon-to-be-unveiled fourth concept, so keep your fingers crossed.
Designed by interior design firm, Independent Consultants, the new space has an overall industrial and futuristic vibe inspired by the underground rave clubs and refurbished warehouses in New York and Berlin. Zouk retains the original sound system and boasts a brand-new spaceship-like light structure suspended directly above the dancefloor. Of course, there are five bars across the entire compound (two in Phuture and three in Zouk) to supply booze all through the night.
