New Zouk KL at TREC

The New Zouk KL at TREC is to open in the second quarter of 2015 after having spent 10 good years along Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur serving hundreds of thousands of party goers and tourist to some of Kuala Lumpur's most happening events and parties. 

While news was out that Zouk KL was to move to the new TREC KL in January 2015, there has been minor delays where the owners are now planning for the opening somewhere in the second quarter of 2015. Update: End of 2015. This means the former location at Jalan Ampang will fully relocate here to the busy end of Jalan Tun Razak towards the Kampung Pandan Roundabout.

Update Dec 2015: The New Zouk Kuala Lumput is now open! Below is a photo of the club.

The current Zouk KL started operation in 2003 with a build up of 32,000 sq ft and also at a cost of RM16 million. This was hands down the main entertainment powerhouse of Kuala Lumpur for the last 10 years and now, the relocation will double the size of the new outlet to a whopping 60,000 sq ft with an investment of RM38 million. This will go down in Malaysian history as the most expensive club ever built too. 

The new design will play on distinct straight line edges defining its unprecedented aggressive facade that suits today's demands in lifestyle and entertainment and the structure of Zouk KL is a vision that embodies the innovative concept of a world-class 24-year-old brand. 

The New Zouk KL comprises several venues including;

♦ VIP bar lounge
♦ Member's lounge
♦ CafĂ©
♦ Rooftop deck

While there are no official names announced for each of the venues, we suspect that the current room names will be used again. However, we will update the information once we get it. A bonus is the rooftop deck at Zouk KL which will have amazing view of the Royal Selangor Golf Club. Other speciality services that Zouk KL will offer include a dedicated VIP concierge service.

Recently in late 2014, the Zouk won the Nightspot Platinum Award at the Kuala Lumpur Mayor's Tourism Awards.

While majority of other bars and clubs in Kuala Lumpur have a closing time of 2-3am, Zouk KL is the only nightspot in the Malaysia that has a 5am operating license.
