With Zouk Singapore's new headquarters in Clarke Quay comes with a slight revamp for the famous Singaporean club's brand.
While hip-hop and R&B-themed room Phuture remains, the beloved Velvet Underground was discontinued by the time the club vacated its iconic Jiak Kim premises.

But for patrons who miss the laid-back atmosphere of the room, Zouk has announced a new concept — a brand new luxury lounge aimed at "working professionals and guests with a preference for finer experiences".
Branded as Capital, it will be the area for patrons who seek a different experience from the main two rooms in Zouk.
Housed on the second level of the main Zouk building, just how luxurious is Capital? Well, they have an island bar, whisky bar, cigar room, and a plush seating area, all prepped for a downbeat and lush nighttime experience.
"The reason behind this is to encourage exploration and growth of taste in music through different concepts, with each catering to different target groups and clubbing habits," explains Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk.
Zouk has also prepared a special programme for Capital — with anchored nights only on Thursdays to Saturdays, they will feature special live performances and DJ sets curated by long-time resident, Jeremy Boon, who will helm the decks alongside other residents Matthew and Andrew Tang.
They've revealed that acts performing in the room will include guitarists Munir Alsagoff and Luke Buirski, saxophonist Kaye — co-founder of Darker Than Wax — and keyboardist Aynsley Green.
Capital is set to open on February 18th — entry for men at SG$40, women at SG$35.
Zouk Singapore is also currently competing to land a slot on the DJMag Top 100 Clubs poll. Vote for Zouk here.
