Coming of The Zouk Evolution
In 10 days’ time – on July 25 – marks the end of an era for Zouk KL at its birthplace Jalan Ampang to a new beginning next month at its new home at the upcoming lifestyle and entertainment enclave, TREC.
With the coming of The Zouk Evolution to welcome the new superclub, Zouk KL gives a sneak peek into its music roster next month, as the final pieces are being assembled for the new complex.
But before the new Zouk KL launches, we’ll say our final goodbyes to the award-winning nightspot at Jalan Ampang, with the final send-off at Velvet Underground.
July 25 promises to be a grand affair for clubbers as they dance through memory lane in a music marathon. An event that would go down in KL’s clubbing history.
Zouk KL’s founder Cher Ng says:
“From the creative community, the who’s who, trendsetters to musicians and club kids, Zouk KL has enthralled those who have waltzed past its velvet ropes in the last 11 years.”
“Superclub Zouk KL is giving a sneak peek of what is to come next month for its music roster, as the final pieces for the new club are being assembled. The machinery of superclub Zouk KL is put together like a menagerie of art pieces, and its dramatic facade – like an assemblage sculpture made up of intricate textured materials.
“We look forward to the opening of Zouk KL. at TREC next month But first, we will celebrate its birth at Jalan Ampang 11 years ago. The finale of Lights Out, Move Out on July 25 is going to be a milestone event. One that will evoke many a fond memory, memorable moments of an iconic brand.”
The 11-year-old Zouk KL, which launched in March 2004, currently occupies a site along Jalan Ampang – its birthplace – in what used to be the former Mississippi Sim Steak House.
Just as the superclub opened to much fanfare then, July 25 will be an equally grand affair for clubbers as well as for the Zouk family. An event that would go down in KL’s clubbing history.
On this night, we will say our final goodbyes to Zouk KL @ Jalan Ampang – with the last bash for Velvet Underground and Zouk Cafe Bar. Velvet Underground will see a music marathon where over a dozen of DJs will come together to bring you the big circa 2004 relive 2015 anthems in the last decade.
For the first time, homeboys Goldfish & Blink; Twilight Action Girl; Ken Master; Luqe; Shazz; Radzi; RJ Funk; Mr Nasty; Nick Haydez; BATE; HypeEmBeats; and Reeve – will present a musical kaleidoscope in one room – on one very special night – at Velvet Underground from 10pm till late.
And, in true Zouk fashion, lotsa fringe activities await Zoukettes on July 25. Plus, free limited edition Zouk KL’s T-shirts for 200 early birds. And, you know the drill, guys. As we say: “See ya at Zouk Cafe Bar” at Jalan Ampang next Saturday, before Zouk KL’s final hurrah at Velvet Underground!
So Relive. Rejuvenate. Reload. For the New Zouk KL @ TREC next month.
