It's been five years since Zouk Singapore moved to its current venue among the converted warehouses of Clarke Quay, an entertainment district by the river in the city’s centre. Boasting three club spaces — Zouk, the main room, Capital and Phuture — plus social gaming bar Red Tail, the venue’s futuristic stylings spare no expense: the club’s customised Gary Stewart Audio system is joined by a giant, immersive lighting rig that’s affectionately nicknamed ‘The Mothership’.
Forced to curtail its nightlife activities during the pandemic, the club impressively repurposed its 31,000 square feet into a restaurant, spin cycle gym and pop-up cinema, retraining its staff. The former also continued to entertain local music lovers, with diners attending nights featuring curated playlists, including Flashback, an evening harking back to the ‘90s and 2000s, and the trance-celebrating Transfix.
In June last year, Zouk even managed to throw a three-day Zoom festival called Phuturescapes. Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board. It featured national live acts, such as Jasmine Sokko and Yung Raja, and international headliners, including Diplo, San Holo and Christina Novelli, alongside the club own residents, Nash D, Jeremy Boon, Hong, Ghettoo, LeNERD and Che’Molly.
With nightlife still closed in Singapore till further notice, Zouk's diversification continues to guide the club and city through uncertain times.
