The Hottest Zouk Parties To Check Out In November & December

Zouk Singapore is moving to its new home at Clarke Quay after spending the last 25 years at Jiak Kim Street. Set to officially close before the end of 2016, the club isn’t moving out without throwing a series of all-time favourite parties for revellers and music lovers. Mark your calendars for these events (cover charges to be announced soon) in November and December:

#1: Balearic Presents: Aldrin, DJB, Jeremy Boon & Cher Feat. Maniam (Friday Nov 18, 10pm till late)
Expect a night of celebration and fond reminiscence as Zouk DJ legends Aldrin, DJB, Jeremy Boon and Cher bring us back to the ’90s, a time when non-stop Balearic beats (aka an eclectic mix of electro, indie and early house) were the norm. They’ll be delivering old-school tunes, complemented by karmic and soulful beats of local percussionist Maniam in Zouk’s Main Room. Tickets are priced at $28 for the ladies and $33 for the men.  #2: The Final TGIW At Jiak Kim: Go Pink Or Go Home (Wednesday Nov 23, 10pm till late)
Who could ever forget the nights we spent partying away at #TGIW? Short for “Thank God It’s Wednesday”, the final installment promises a memorable night of grooving to EDM and hip-hop mixes nu DJs Ghetto, LeNerd and MC Sonorous’  at Zouk. EDM duo Hong and Andrew Tang, meanwhile, will be spinning over at Phuture. Free admission for the ladies and $28 for the men.  #3: Readyset Glo Presents Hong W/ Wayne The Insane At Zouk (Friday Nov 25, 10pm till late)
It was a favourite for indie and electronic music lovers (including Female Collective girls Linda Hao and Charmaine Seah). This time, it’ll be hosted by tastemaker Tracy Phillips, while DJs Hong and Wayne the Insane will be helming the decks. Look out for special appearance from Zouk resident DJ Zushan who usually spins at Velvet Underground and Vietnam-based independent visual artist Le Thanh Tung aka Crazy Monkey’s special visual effects. Tickets are priced at $28 for the ladies and $33 for the men.      #4: The Final Mambo Jambo At Jiak Kim (Wednesday, Nov 30, 10pm till late)
Possibly the longest running party in Singapore’s nightlife scene, this final edition of Mambo Jambo will see a playlist of classic dance anthems that will definitely get you up and moving to Square Rooms, Love In The First Degree and other ditties. Tickets are priced at $28 for the ladies and $33 for the men.  #5: Zouk At Jiak Kim Finale Weekender (Friday-Saturday, Dec 2-3, 10pm till late)
