Zouk Club, Singapore
We visited the Zouk Club on 22 Feb 2014, Saturday night .
This club is located behind the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel , 17 Jiak Kim Street.
Arrived here by taxi ,on 10 pm, because our Singaporean friend told us that on weekends , Zouk will packed up with people ,and yes, crowds already gathered on the outside of Zouk ,Q ing in 2 lines , for the Zouk on the left and Velvet Underground on the right.You would experience a long line of Q if you arrived on midnight.
Crowds here are between in their 20's and 30's.
Tickets for Zouk were slightly cheaper than Velvet , but if you purchased Velvet tickets ,you can go anywhere within the place , including to Phuture and Zouk.But on the contrary if we buy Zouk ticket , we cannot go inside the Velvet.There's also a Wine bar with indoor and outdoor seating.
We bought our Velvet tickets , as long as i remembered its SGD 30 for men and SGD 25 for ladies. Got stamped on the left wrist.Proceed inside, went the Velvet lounge ,exchange our tickets for some drinks ,observed that the lounge was empty ,so we went to the Phuture.
Phuture was some kind of dancing hall with standing bar, observed that not much seating were available .
Drinks got promo of buy one get one until 12.00 pm , so we tried some,Martinis, Illusions, Long Island.Paid SGD 16 for shots of illusion which should be SGD 32.
Later we proceed to the Zouk lounge where most of the people gathered, and here where all the fun begins.
Nice music in the Zouk , and guest DJ was playing, nice atmosphere.
Dress Code: Observed that visitors dressed up at their best ,stylish women with heels and men with long sleeved shirts, trousers with closed shoes.
Dress code for men : No shorts ,sandals or flip flops, or open heels shoes.
Wednesday is Mambo night and also Ladies Night. There'll be songs like 'Heaven on Earth', 'Rumor', 'Square Rooms' and 'Summer Rain'. RETRO. People would be dancing to those songs with real dance steps. :)
My friend Lorriane couldn't wait to take me to Singapore's finest Nightclub Zouk. I must say I had a really great time and think this is a really nice club to go for dancing. Really great atmosphere and just look at the superb pictures my friend took while we was there.
Zouk has survived for many decades. Many pubs closed and moved. But Zouk has always survived through.
every wed is retro night.
Crowd age range between 18 to 40yrs old.
Well, dance all you can.
Operating hours till 3am
Dress Code: smart casual.
if you are in singapore and if you miss out the nightlife, then i would say, stay one more night and freak out...
zouk, is a place to be at...if you are a party animal. cool music, cool babes and the whole cosmo singapore comes to life at this place, you will find people from all over the world, hanging around.
hence, if you are in singapore, dont miss this out...Zouk is a place to be at !!
Very recommended. Arrived to crowds outside the club, but no lines. Excellent wine list. The wine bar was room 1 of a 3 room club. After finding breakbeats in the room next door, imagine my surprise when i enter the main room to a sea of people worshipping a dj who was none other than house master: Danny Tenaglia, infamous for his insaaaaaaanely super long 12 hour sets...not to mention his uncanny ability to make those the shortest 12 hours of your life.
Dress Code: Trendy
If you arrive in Singapore on a weekday and wonder where all the people have gone.. wait till Fris and Sats..@ Zouk! OMG it was PACKED! This place, to me, is the most alive spot in the country.
There are 4 sections: Zouk, Phuture, Velvet Underground and Wine bar. Each section plays different kind of music. You have to pay a cover charge separately for each one. The charge is around 20SGD and it includes 1-2 drinks depending on what you order. I only paid to go to Zouk (hip hop) and Phuture (techno n dance stuff). Music was pretty good with quality cocktails.
Check out the website for any special happennings or promotion.
PS If you dont see many cuties and hotties during your stay, check out this club. You wont be disappointed.
Dress Code: Dress up
It's difficult to categorise/ themed Zouk.
Divided into 4 sections...if i remembered correctly.
WIne bar. Velvet Underground. Zouk. Phuture.
Enter the small road from the main road. On your right is the Copthorne Hotel. Walk on down the road, and you'll be greeted by the bright neon sign that says *Zouk.
The best way to enjoy this club is to get a tix for Velvet Underground. The stamp will allow you to roam in all the other rooms. But of course, if you know the bouncer or somebody who works there, would probably be even better :)
Cosy lounge area with the dance floor facing the Bar. A more intimate setting. Older crowd.
Music: New York House & Garage
A long futuristic modern winding bar. Attracts the younger crowd. People dancing all over the place.

A pre-club bar and chill out area after a whole nite of dancing. Located near the main entrance.

Usually, I'm always suspicious when I read to many hyped reviews about a club but this one deserve its reputation. They regularly have European DJ invited. The night I went there was a regular night but still packed. The great thing with this bar is its multiple atmosphere so you can go from one bar to an other depending on how you feel.
(Didn't take picture at Zouk but thought I'd motivate the guys (again) with what you might see there....) ( An other occasion to practice my Singlish)
Dress Code: Dress to impress
Whoever comes to Singapore, I will strongly advise them to Visit Zouk. I am proud of Zouk, the way I am proud of Singapore Airlines.
Dress Code: Smart Casual.
One of my favorite places in asia. Cool people, girls and best international house DJs. Take the taxi and tell the driver Zouk and he will bring you there.
