Singapore’s clubbing icon Zouk is set to make its move from Jiak Kim Street to the new premises at Block C at Clarke Quay next year. Zouk’s current lease on Jiak Kim Street, which the club has occupied since 1991, expires in Dec 2015. Zouk’s last party on Jiak Kim Street is targeted to be held in May 2016, and a series of parties will lead up to Zouk’s new club opening in Clarke Quay next year.
The 24-year-old superclub is targeting to complete its relocation to the new space from between June and September 2016. Music festival ZoukOut, which is organised by Zouk, will continue to be held annually. The 2015 edition – its 15th instalment – will take place on Siloso Beach on Dec 11 and 12 this year.
Zouk was the first to bring the pulsating Balearic beats to Singapore and Asia. The rich heritage of Zouk stems from its bold and unparallelled music selection driven by Cheng’s reverence for the musical art form, as well as Zouk’s adherence to its precepts – in design, architecture, music, arts and fashion.
Cheng, who is also the founder of Zouk Kuala Lumpur, says: “My vision for the Zouk brand has remained steadfast all these years – bringing together people through music: One World, One Music, One Tribe, One Dance. It is always about the unique Zouk experience and the quality. This being the constant, all other aspects continue to evolve and change with consumer tastes, trends and habits. This has also enabled us to remain relevant till today.
The coming of the new Zouk Singapore in a year’s time opens a brand new chapter for the award-winning club brand, a 10-time winner of the Republic’s Best Nightspot Experience award given out by the Singapore Tourism Board.
