Oh hellz yes we can all rest our worries about the future of Singapore’s iconic club, Zouk Singapore, right about now :D
About a year ago, it was revealed that Zouk Singapore might have to shut down if they couldn’t secure a new location. The shocking news later sparked a regionwide petition, with the club publicly appealing to fans of the iconic Singaporean nightclub to help #SaveZouk.
Then, in August 2014, Singapore’s government confirmed that they will give Zouk Singapore a one-year extension on its lease at Jiak Kim Street when it expires on 31st December 2014. If Zouk was able to secure a new location by 30th June 2015, the authorities would then extend its lease further until the end of 2017 to facilitate the move.
Fans of the club have since been waiting with bated breaths for more updates on the future of Zouk Singapore. Well, wait no more because according to CNA, Zouk Singapore has signed a new lease for a 30,000 square foot (sq ft) space at Block C in Clarke Quay.
The 24-year-old night club brand said in a press release that it is targeting to complete its relocation from Jiak Kim Street – which it has occupied since 1991 – by September next year. It said it is giving “provision for delays in renovations and other administrative matters for the superclub to operate at its new premises”.
Block C at The Cannery nightlife attraction in Clarke Quay has been occupied in the past by clubs like Fenix Room and Ministry of Sound (MOS).
Keep your dancing shoes on, yo ;)
