Zouk is a nightclub in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. The club is named after the French Creole word for 'party'.

The three old warehouses that make up the original Zouk were built in 1919 on the Singapore River. Thoroughly renovated, the houses now feature three interconnected clubs:

  • Zouk (1991), with a large dancefloor and state-of-the-art sound and lighting, catering to a variety of artists
  • Velvet Underground (1994), a quieter, more relaxed lounge that plays house and soul
  • Phuture (1996), a more avant-garde bar specializing in broken beats

The club has been modified in Oct 2005. The makeover has been a S$ 7 Million project including changes within Zouk, Velvet Underground, Phuture and Wine Bar.

The clubs have proven popular with Singapore's partygoing crowd and regularly attract performers from all over the world. Its famous Mambo Jambo theme nights are considered a must-go for a beginning clubber.

In 2004, Zouk opened a sister club on Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Zouk KL features four rooms: Zouk and Velvet Underground styled on the original, plus the Loft and Terrace bars.

A beach dance party called ZoukOut is organised at Sentosa in December each year. On December 10 2005, 18,000 people attended the party. Template:Ref
