Zouk first opened in Singapore back in 1991 and introduced a world class clubbing experience to the Singapore nightlife scene. Built on an impressive scale, Zouk occupies a row of three restored warehouses on the river front of central Singapore. An innovative concept for clubbing and nightlife, Zouk comprises four distinct “concept” clubs – each with a different decor and music concept- and with a combined capacity of 4,000 patrons.
Zouk has been embraced by generations of local and regional clubbers, and in the process evolved its own distinctive dance music subculture. Acclaimed internationally by both mainstream and dance culture media, Zouk has consistently been ranked among the Best Clubs in the World. The name “zouk” derives from the Creole word meaning “village party”. And the club’s guiding principle- stated simply as- “One World, One Music, One Tribe, One Dance”.
One of the unique features of Zouk has been the diversity of the different rooms within the overall complex- with each room having a distinctive decor theme and music style. In addition to the headline Zouk club room, the other rooms are Velvet Underground, Phuture, and the indoor / outdoor Wine Bar adjacent to the club main entrance.
In the photos below we take a look inside the Zouk Wine Bar and Phuture- at Zouk Singapore.

The Wine Bar is located at the front of the Zouk complex of buildings- adjacent to the main entrance.
