THE new Zouk KL at TREC, along Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur, is set to open soon but just before that happens, it’s time to put on your dancing shoes for one of Zouk KL’s biggest bashes — Lights Out, Move Out double-edition farewell parties at 113, JalanAmpang on July 11 and 25.
The first send-off takes place next Saturday for Zouk Main Room and Phuture. The Zouk KL complex at Jalan Ampang won’t be closed after the July 11 bash though, as Velvet Underground and Zouk Cafe Bar will continue to operate beyond July 11.
July 25 will mark the finale of Lights Out, Move Out for Velvet Underground and Zouk Cafe Bar — as well as the Zouk KL complex — as the curtain comes down for this chapter of the DJ Mag world-ranked #38 club.
Thereafter, the 11-year-old club will make its transition in that week to its new double-storey home in TREC and details of the new Zouk KL will be announced in due time.
TREC is Malaysia’s largest and first purpose-built entertainment enclave. Zouk KL is one of the five zones and it is the first zone to open at TREC.
Part one of the send-off will see Zouk Main Room residents Goldfish & Blink and HypeEmBeats helming a riotous night, while DJs Luqe and Radzi will work the dance floor at Phuture.
The finale will see a music marathon at Velvet Underground with RJ Funk, HypeEmBeats, Luqe, Ken Master, Goldfish, Blink, BATE, Radzi and Shazz all on decks.
Revellers attending the Lights Out, Move Out farewell parties can sign up for launch invites to the new Zouk KL at TREC, and Zouk KL’s membership. There will also be a sneak peek of the new club to be screened on the nights.
The new Zouk KL is being developed at a cost of RM38mil. It is the most expensive club to be built in Malaysia, and possibly the most sophisticated club development in the world, with its self-contained service amenities and facilities.
Zouk KL has come a long way since it opened its doors in the Malaysian capital in 2004.
A familiar brand in the international clubbing arena, it started off with its original sister club in Singapore in 1991. The KL club has gained popularity in the region on its own terms, having since platformed and nurtured a string of local artistes while presenting an impressive roster of global acts in its programming.
In 2008, the iconic club underwent a major revamp where new rooms were created. Always evolving, always ahead of the curve, Zouk KL appeals to both mainstream audience, as well as the more musically adventurous underground.
