Zouk is slated to close by this year end due to the inflexible leasing at Jiak Kim Street. Getting tired of dealing with the short lease extensions, founder of Zouk, Mr Lincoln Cheng, says that the club will close if he does not get the request of a 3-year extension of lease.
The 23 years old iconic night spot, Zouk (French creole for ‘party’) in Singapore will be thus gone for good, if not for the extension. With so much memories and iconic moments that Zouk has brought us, we take a look at what we will miss about Zouk if the request for a 3-year lease extension gets rejected.
1) Singapore will lose its iconic, international-renown club
2) Singapore may see the absence of ZoukOut
3) Where will POPTART go?
4) Zouk Flea will be gone
5) We will miss seeing the drunk eye-candies outside or near the bridge
I am sure the late teens and young adults will still have fond and vibrant memories of Zouk. We will certainly miss this great space where everyone is proud to call Zouk their favourite party spot.
