Superclub Zouk Kuala Lumpur (KL) is now ranked the #38 club in the world, taking a big leap of 14 places to its new ranking on UK’s DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs 2015 global poll!

The results were announced last Friday by the UK cult magazine, a bible for global club and electronic dance music culture. This is the first time that Zouk Club KL has broken into the Top 40 since the multi-venue nightspot made its 2011 debut on the global club polls.

Each year, DJ Mag puts together a list of the cream of the crop nightspots from around the world – voted online by users – reflecting what they truly enjoy, as well as the establishment’s popularity on a global scale. Zouk KL was previously ranked #65 (2011); #66 (2012); and #52 (2014).

Upon the announcement, Zouk Club KL founder and executive director Cher Ng said:

It’s a great achievement by the Zouk KL team, underlining their passion and strong commitment in offering the best. We aim to be one of the Top 30 clubs in the world by 2017.

Zouk Club KL’s success and quick rise in popularity among global audiences are boosted by its progressive showcase of electronic dance music presented by a scintillating roster of international and Asian acts; intuitive programming; the embracing of digital technology to support its intricate eco-system of consumer amenities and services; tourist-friendly policies, and more.

In fact, the club has seen the likes of Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Cosmic Gate, Shogun, and many more taking over the decks in the past.

Each week, Zouk Club KL draws about 15,000 visitors, including tourists. That works out to about 800,000 visitors waltzing past its velvet ropes annually, of whom 100,000 or 20% are tourists.

Some Zouk Club KL fun facts to commemorate this occasion:

  • It is the only club in the capital to offer free entry to tourists, in support of the city’s tourism cause.
  • It is also the only nightspot destination in the city with a licence to operate until 5am.
  • The club is endorsed by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture as one of the National Key Economic Areas – the first for an entertainment venue.

Zouk Club KL, which celebrated its 11th anniversary last week, will relocate from its current location at Jalan Ampang to KL’s new lifestyle precinct TREC along Jalan Tun Razak by the second quarter of 2015.
