While dancing it out under pulsing lights isn’t yet a possibility, Zouk will be allowing its patrons to sweat it out on the dance floor in the day.
The partnership with Absolute Cycle, a Rhythm Cycling studio, is a move for the club to “better utilise its space”, according to Zouk Group's chief executive Andrew Li, speaking to The Sunday Times.
This will help Absolute Cycle deal with excess demand due after reducing their capacity due to safe distancing measures.

Aside from being a part-time cycling studio, Zouk at night will be transformed into a cinema, with plans for themed movie nights four times a week. Spaced-out tables of up to five and themed decorations each month, as well as food to complement the movie experience, are in the works.
In September, the Zouk Group was sold to Malaysian firm Tulipa as Genting Hong Kong attempted to offload “non-core assets” and provide liquidity. The past few months have also seen the popular party spot channelling their efforts into renting space to Lazada, starting Zouk Digital and bottled cocktails.
Latest developments in the coronavirus situation have allowed small-scale live performances to take place gradually. On the other hand, plans for phase 3 of Singapore’s reopening have been said to be revealed in the coming weeks, which would entail changes to the size of group gatherings and large-scale events.
