The spanking new US$10-million Zouk KL reopened August last year at a new locale along Jalan Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur. It stands boldly in the capital city shaped by modern skyscrapers and historic landmarks. With its sharp, sloping lines, its masculine, futuristic exterior is a symbol of tomorrow. Imposing on the outside, it houses a myriad of contrasting interior spaces at its heart, embracing modernist techniques in sound, lights and design, keeping its inhabitants au courant with the future. Welcome to the clubland – Zouk KL.
We explored the different rooms within Zouk, each with their own distinct character and design, and here are top five favourites.
ZOUK MAIN ROOM
The pulse of Zouk KL with its altar-like console, it is the biggest room in Zouk KL, and the soundscape of the super club. One that deﬁes musical boundaries with the intense rhythms pounding from the state-of-the-art sound system that reverberates through the room, adding to the electrifying atmosphere.
This intimate space is a symmetrical room focused on the service bar. Its faux marble effect projects a dramatic, almost art deco feel. This is mid- century modern meets Capellini – very elegant, with a dash of gold and black. Watch people glide into the Member’s Lounge via a fantastic slide that comes down from Imperial above it.
An alternative bar-lounge, it is the proud host to a diverse musical fare, lending to its individualistic personality. A mushroom-like canopy extends overhead, bathing the club in a gentle, luminous glow. A 5m ﬂoor-to-ceiling glass window lets you to enjoy the spectacular view of the streetscape on Jalan Tun Razak. Apex Lounge is also the space of comfort offering the earthier pleasures of gastronomy. A delectable Japanese tapas menu – sashimi, rolls, tempuras, salads, and more – keeping ﬂavours diverse yet pleasing for communal enjoyment. You’ll ﬁnd the Pinot Noir and cocktails as savoury as you would the tenderly grilled yakitori. Apex Lounge’s playlist is curated by Zouk KL’s resident DJ Blink offering a bevy of genres from Indie all the way to contemporary.
If you’d like some privacy for you and your guests, the Glass Box adapts suitably for private events for up to 30 people. Its ﬂoor-to-ceiling glass wall on one side overlooks the golf course, and another side with a full height glass wall with a door opening into a balcony with a glass balustrade.
Opulent in its design, it was conceptualised for the growing afﬂuent, high society who pursue the ﬁner things in life where premium wines and champagnes are top tipples. The second biggest room in Zouk KL, Imperial provides a highly personalised service such as prominent parking spaces for supercars, as well as a password-activated private lift from the basement car park straight to the nightspot club entry for guests who desire privacy. The room has an underlying champagne theme, right down to the windows at the back that overlook the gardens. Forget the lift if you’re heading to the Member’s Lounge on the ground ﬂoor. Jump onto the slide that will take you straight down. Imperial Lounge will also feature a whisky collection, which will include rare and award-winning whiskies from around the world.
