Zouk Group To Open In Las Vegas As Part Of $5.78B Integrated Resort
Since its founding in 1991, Zouk Singapore has always been regarded as a world-class nightlife establishment.
According to the annual survey of DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs, Zouk was ranked fifth in the world last year.
However, revelers have not been able to visit the award-winning nightclub since the end of March, due to government restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of Covid-19.
Last month, Zouk Group was sold to Malaysian company Tulipa for S $ 14 million. Zouk’s cash-strapped parent company Genting Hong Kong (GHK) decided to generate cash.
Following the acquisition, Zouk broke new ground to keep its doors open as clubbing is irrelevant.
From transforming its dance floor into a restaurant, to organizing spin classes and, more recently, a pop-up cinema, the local nightclub is definitely stepping up its game to stay relevant.
That’s not all. Zouk is also spreading his wings beyond Singapore and heading to Las Vegas.
From Singapore to Sin City
Zouk Group announced today (November 12) that it has partnered with Resorts World Las Vegas to build a US $ 4.3 billion (S $ 5.78) integrated resort in Las Vegas.
It is slated to open in the summer of next year and marks the company’s first business in the United States.
According to Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk Group, when Genting Hong Kong bought Zouk there was already a vision to build a lifestyle portfolio.
“Now that we have consolidated our plans for Zouk Singapore, we are expanding and the Zouk at Resorts World Genting was the first step. We also have the cruise ships, and opening one in Las Vegas is just the natural progression, ”he told Augustman.
The Resorts World Las Vegas casino complex will house two 66-story hotel towers with a total of 3,500 rooms. It will also include a 5,000-seat theater, 350,000 square feet of convention space and a 2.2 hectare aquatic complex.
Resorts World Las Vegas will also feature four Zouk concepts: the quintessential Zouk Nightclub, AYU Dayclub, RedTail social game bar, and FUHU experiential dining venue that serves contemporary Asian cuisine.
These will be built on a 35.6 hectare site by the Malaysian company Genting Berhad.
“The partnership between Zouk Group and Resorts World Las Vegas will bring together entertainment and lifestyle brands on a property intended to breathe new life into the Las Vegas market,” Li said in a statement.
“With over 29 years of experience in the nightlife industry, the Zouk brand is proud to make its debut at Resorts World Las Vegas, in a destination considered by many to be the entertainment capital of the world.
