My first time clubbing was in Zouk and its still my go to place when I want to hit the town. Needless to say, Zouk is in a realm of its own. Its a world renowned club that's situated on this small little island in South East Asia and up to today that still boggles my mind.

I usually spend most of my time at Phuture just because I prefer the music there but every once in a while, Zouk itself is awesome to hang at because the energy there is amazing. And having to elbow people to move is fun too, in its own way. The first time I went I was blown away by the chandeliers. (I'm easily impressed)

Money wise, your not going to get excellent value no matter which nightclub you go to so, like anyone else would tell you, drink up before you get there and just dance the night away. Girls, make sure to cash in on ladies' night to save a couple bucks.

Zouk is definitely an iconic Singaporean club and this is a must-go, whether you're a local or foreigner. The highlight of Zouk is their ubiquitous Mambo Jambo night, where the entire dance floor is transformed into a mass dance disco and patrons boogie to 80s hits while performing synchronised hand movements. It is certainly an experience like no other and if you don't know the moves, just follow the regulars who will lead the crowd while perched high up on the dance podiums!

Mambo used to be held regularly on Wednesday nights but as it fizzled out in the past few years, it is now held on eve of public holidays instead. Elsewhere, The club is split into other zones namely Phuture, which plays hip hop R & B, and also Velvet Underground which caters to house music. Big name DJs ply their trade here at Zouk all the time like Dash Berlin, Avicii and Gareth Amery. Drinks on most nights are 1-for-1 before midnight and the club has coined a few of their own innovative drinks like 'meenion shots' which look like the minions from Despicable Me.

Overall, it's a place to let down your hair, forget about your worries and have a great night out with your pals.

Haven’t been the party person a year ago but after my first experience with Zouk in March this year, I haven’t since set foot into another club! Zouk sections out into Phuture, Zouk and Velvet, playing the music genres of Drum ‘n’ Bass, Hip-hop and Down-tempo.

Phuture- Where all the youngsters go
Zouk: About the same as Phuture but I find that the DJ seriously lacks musicality(pardon me). Like every time the song is about to reach the climax, they’ll change the song. ?!?!?!
Velvet: For the mature crowd, lots of LED lights.

Drinks are priced rather reasonably at the wine bar. Cover charge is $25 for the ladies and $33/35 for the men. Entry comes with 2 house pours! Though for the ladies, if your wallets are a little tight lately, try pulling some ropes and get your name included in the guestlist! *nudges* Hahahahah.

All in all, I love Phuture the best for their DJ-ing and music selections! Though it is the occasional sausage fest, with the right company and great music, I believe we could all make exceptions! Just take more care. Well, after all, being the 5th best club in the world.. how bad can it get?

This club is a very good platform for DJs as well as party go-ers, citibank card holders are entitled to free entry as well as 1 for 1 drinks at winebar (bottles not included of course) as well as StandChart Manhattan Card holders would enjoy free entry on fri&Sat with 2 free drinks

Attendance is always full on wednesdays and fridays. Many world renowned DJs have spun there and also spun for various events like Zoukout a yearly mega event that have featured names like , Steve Aoki, Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, David Guetta, Laidback Luke, Ferry Corsten and the list goes on.

Normally on Saturdays Zouk always feature other overseas DJs like Trouse Brothers, ATB, Infested Mushrooms, Bloody Beetroots, Gareth Emry, Hardwell, Marco V and the list goes on. Recently Zouk has included Poptart every month for party people in the indie/electro scene which is very popular with the younger generation.

Very importantly i would give kudos to the staff working there, from the Owners, the Managers, The PR guys at the door (once in khaki blazers) to the Bouncers, the floor staff, the bar tenders and even the toilet aunty that always makes sure the drunks would be able to sober themselves up enough.

All in all i would give it a 9.5/10 for an average of all my experiences there i never fail to have an enjoyable time as well as the company of many friends who are also regulars of the clubs. Definitely a place for people who likes to groove to good music as well as shufflers(:

** I was a regular in zouk for about 2.5 years

The place to be on a Friday night
Overall Experience 
 
4.5
Not just Friday actually, but Wednesday, Thursday (especially when there is a long weekend coming up) and Saturday, you get the drift.

Zouk is THE nightclub in Singapore, it was and still is. Having been to most nightclubs in Singapore, Zouk is still my favourite and the one I return to most often. Usually I would head over to the winebar located for a few drinks to catchup with my friends before heading in. The music at Zouk caters to different tastes as there are 4 different complexes, each playing a different genre of music. The vibe I get whenever I frequent Zouk is that I am young, wild and free, and that is what I want to be at least for that night.

Everyone knows what Zouk is and what it stands for, clearly this must mean something aye?
Well, Zouk is one of the oldest clubs in singapore and have been known to many as a place we can all have fun, fit for all ages.

After visiting so many clubs in singapore, I never fail to return to this place as Zouk is the only place where I can get my ultimate clubbing experience and I would recommend this club for any friends or tourists who are coming from overseas as this is the only place you can get the true blue clubbing experience here in Singapore.

As you already know, zouk has 4 different complexes, and I generally always frequent Phuture, Zouk itself and Velvet lounge. Despite the higher prices for the entry as well as the bottles which I open, I am more than willing to pay for the wonderful time and service which is comparable to none. Indeed, Zouk is the only place you can get solid music and awesome world-renowned DJs coming in on special nights for their events. Their calendar is always filled with popular DJs like David Guetta and Emma Hewitt who come into Zouk and get the party started!

Not to mention, their bouncers sure know how to make the place safe and provide a high level of security. There was once, a friend of mine actually got a very serious cut in her heels, the security personnel immediately escorted me out of Zouk through a special exit into the back where they had medics on standby and wasted no time in attending to my friend. Such awesome service for their patrons indeed!

Zouk is no doubt the only place to be if you want to have a crazy, wild yet safe night!

Someone somewhere should be regularly worshiped for creating Phuture Friday's.

I got introduced to Phuture by accident, it become an addiction by delightful choice.

Me and my 12 friends were drinking (Zouk is conveniently location near Holiday Inn Atrium, a place known for its cheap, capable drinks) and they were discussing which club in Zouk they were going to go. I heard 3 names – Zouk itself, Velvet and Phuture. I thought Phuture was a bad misspelling and instantly disliked it, but my best friend wanted to go see so I stuck with the Phuture group.

I am not a very good decision maker, and I count this as one of the best decisions of my life. There is no single architecture more worthy of Singapore’s limited land than Phuture. I worship it.

Phuture blew me away with their fist-pumping music and classic club anthems. I heard my 2009 all-time favourites, I heard the newest music, I heard goodness. It was eargasm after eargasm. The tracks were sick and I was on enough alcohol, it fueled my happiness to an all-time high.

I have never been able to continually club for hours on end. I always needed more drinks to keep myself intoxicated and happy. But Phuture is different. The music was sensory heroine, the ambience was addictively powerful, and the crowd was out of the world.

I have never been so depressed stumbling out of a club until Phuture. I sat with my friends on the sidewalk, but whilst they were wondering how to split cabs and etcetera unimportant details, I was contemplating getting a home permit stay there.

I am content spending the rest of my teenage life kissing the ground Phuture stands on.

At $28 for ladies and $33 for the guys with 2 free drinks, the entrance fee is on the steep side but the experience and atmosphere at Zouk is well worth it! Zouk is split into three sections - the main Zouk room, Phuture and Velvet Underground.

I love Phuture - the resident DJ spins Top 40 hits that you can sing your heart out to. However it gets very very packed and you're bound to work up a sweat! Chances are your feet will get stepped on repeatedly (heels - ouch) as people weave in and out of the crowd.

Mambo Jambo is great if you're a fan of oldies-but-goodies, feel-good and sometimes cheesy songs like Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley and Love in the First Degree by Bananarama. Some songs have accompanying hand movements that are easy to learn. As the night progresses the songs played are more recent hits, which is the part I enjoyed the most. However since Phuture is more popular, Mambo Jambo is being relocated to the Phuture room.

Zouk plays House and Trance on Friday and Saturday nights. If you're into these genres like I am, you'll quite like it there because it isn't that packed.

Oh, and another reason to visit Zouk: the big-name guest DJs! Some DJs like Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin and Above & Beyond drop by every year to play a set. The entrance fees are raised but well worth it for the awesome music!

All in all, my favourite club and in my opinion deserving of its DJ Mag ranking!

Home to many party enthusiasts both local and international, Zouk is by far one of the most popular nightclubs here in Singapore today. The reputable club has gained its recognition in the local partying scene for the wide range of parties it hosts - from the annual Zoukout event to having frequent international big names like Afrojack and Hardwell spin at the club. As to why Zouk is still by far my favourite is the fact that I get to enjoy hearing such djs spin at extremely affordable prices while having my friends right by my side to party with.

On a regular night, the club lacks no attendance as it is packed with excited individuals ready to have a good time. The music and ambiance of the club appeals to the likes of party-goers as the heart-pumping music just leaves you dancing from the start till the lights come on. Personally I like how the dance floors are strategically spaced near the bars, but just at a right distance so as to not obstruct the excited dancers. Despite its modern beats, it still attempts to engage some old-school by having its weekly Mambo Jumbo Wednesdays. The members area also appeals to many as it provides a certain exclusivity, having their own bar, dance floor and more personalised service.

The club restrooms are also frequently maintained during the night, which is a big plus point as no one would like to deal with the stench of puke or a filthy toilet admist having a good time at the club. However, the bag drop efficiency could be improved as the anti-climatic queues at the end of the night to collect one's belongings could be an essential mood-killer to what had been a great night.

Many youngsters and working adults seem to be involved in nightlife more often nowadays. It is a reward for them to chill out with friends after a long day of hard work. I've visited quite a number of clubs but hardly goes to pub as I prefer drinking and dancing to sitting down and listening to music. Zouk is so far the best I've experienced. Velvet Underground and Phuture are inside the club for people who love to shake on the dance floor. There is a 1-for-1 alcoholic drink promotion before 12am too. Early birds can drink with friends while waiting for the dance floor to get filled up. By that time, it is your chance to show the best movements. I prefer Phuture music which is pop and R&B as Zouk is more trance. Plus the crowd is better at Phuture, unless you don't like to squeeze you can choose the other side. 

Zouk also include a Wine Bar for friends who wish to get some drinks before dance or have a good chat. However it is quite difficult to speak as it is usually crowded on Friday and Saturday. If you are holding a CitiBank card, pop by to get your free entry on Friday and Saturday nights, you might need it.
