The quintessential playground for music luminaries in Asia and around the world, the award-winning Zouk KL displays its innovative spirit with its unparalleled entertainment.

Within its majestic confines are 11 venues – Zouk Main Room; Zouk Cafe Bar; Beer Garden; Phuture; Velvet Underground; Apex Lounge; Ace; Members’ Lounge; Imperial; Glass Box; and Balcony Deck.
Embracing a unique dynamism, each space expresses the hallmark of modern contemporary design, visual arts and technology, preserving the Zouk brand. Zouk KL’s founder, Cher Ng, says: “We have designed a cool, massive venue to provide an experiential, memorable outing for local and foreign visitors. It’s bold. One-of-a-kind, and with a wow factor. ”
Let the journey begin.
