Vengaboys, Afrojack and Ben Nicky are some of the biggest names in dance music to take the stage at Marquee Singapore this April. However, Singapore's largest nightclub has announced that it will be suspending operations until further notice due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Marina Bay Sands nightlife superstar cited the halt in accordance with the Singapore government's recent advisory where all ticketed events with 250 participants or more are to be deferred or cancelled. All tickets purchased to any of Marquee Singapore's events will be refunded automatically. Updates on its re-opening will be announced via its social media platforms in due time. This suspension does not affect its TAO Group sister venues –it's business as usual at Avenue, Koma, and Lavo.
Other nightlife giants such as Zouk remain open with increased measures to ensure the health and safety of staff and party guests. Zouk has implemented daily temperature screenings for all staff. Temperature-taking for guests is also available at its front office upon request. The Clarke Quay nightclub is also equipped with many wall-mounted sanitisers to be utilised and encourages revellers to take a break from partying if feeling unwell. These are in response to the Singapore government's advice to "demonstrate that satisfactory precautionary measures have been put in place before (events that have already been committed) can proceed."
Stay tuned for more updates on venue closures as well as postponed and cancelled events.
