Zouk is three nightclubs in one. The main room is simply known as Zouk, upstairs is Phuture, and next door is Velvet Underground. Your cover charge includes entrance to Phuture, but you need to pay extra to get into Velvet Underground.
Some say Zouk is the best in clubbing Singapore has to offer, but others find it is 'just another club' these days. No matter what you think, Zouk is an institution worth visiting for a virgin clubber and has been featured in magazines such as Time Out, The Face and Newsweek. Zouk has also been named Nightspot of the Year by the Singapore Tourism Board in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001 and 2005.
When entering Zouk's main room, your anticipation builds up as you're welcomed in by a cheeky-eyed door host in a crisp beige suit. Wednesday Mambo Jambo nights are a ritual for first-time clubbers and for veterans who want to relive their youth. Although it spins top 40 hits of the last generation and beyond, don't expect granny panties - nubile dance enthusiasts conquer and gyrate atop podiums and platforms.
Saturday nights feature the best of house and techno. In fact, it was the first club in Singapore to play house music. Slightly moorish in design with a sprawling dancefloor and ample space for people-watching (or leering). Minimum entry age is 18, no flip flops or open toe shoes for men.
