If you only have time for one club in Singapore, then it simply has to be Zouk. Probably Singapore’s only nightspot of international repute, Zouk remains both an institution and a rite of passage for young people in the city-state.
It has spawned several other clubs in neighbouring countries like Malaysia, and even has its own dance festival – Sentosa’s ZoukOut. Zouk is made up of three clubs and a wine bar, with the main room showcasing techno and house music. Velvet Underground is more relaxed and exclusive, while Phuture is experimental and racier than the rest, just as its name suggests.
Zouk’s global reputation means it’s home to all manner of leading world DJs, from Carl Cox and Paul Oakenfold to the Chemical Brothers and Primal Scream. Zouk also holds its famous Mambo Jambo retro nights on Wednesdays, another reason why a night at Zouk is one to savour.
