Zouk has more history and heritage than most clubs in existence today. A destination venue for all serious clubbers, it's been in operation since 1991 and is a bedazzling complex comprising four discrete clubs: Zouk, Phuture, Velvet Underground –—Dance and Velvet Underground — Lounge, and a wine bar to boot.
Zouk itself is the biggie, with its Moorish Spain-styled interior and monster Gary Stewart-designed soundsystem, while Phuture had a major million dollar refit in 2012, adding an impressive, hypnotic LED wall. But don't neglect the stunning twin environs of Velvet Underground.
Its Dance room is a cool underground club space, with a host of pop art masterpieces on its walls, while Lounge is an opulent VIP bottle service area. There's also the ZoukOut beach festival and Kuala Lumpur Zouk outpost for those who can't get enough. And with the original club booking everyone from Laurent Garnier to Hardwell, via Jeff Mills and Gilles Peterson, all tastes are catered to in the club.
Despite threats of closure last year, Zouk managed to cement their position as Asia’s best club whilst bagging the No.7 spot in the overall rankings.
But can they maintain this coveted position? Only you can decide, so be sure to vote for your No.1 club now in Top 100 Clubs powered by Miller Genuine Draft.
