Have you gone clubbing in Singapore? Let us know which are your favourite clubs!
Zouk is one of, if not THE, most popular club/bar in Singapore. There are four different clubs within Zouk itself – Velvet Underground, Phuture, the Wine Bar and the main Zouk room. It is the pioneer of local clubbing institutions, delivering a progressive and innovative environment and introducing Singaporeans to the world’s freshest dance music – from house to techno. The club is named after the French Creole word for ‘party’. It has won the Singapore Tourism Board’s “Best Nightspot Experience” award a whopping six times, between 1996 to 2007. Zouk was also ranked number 10 on DJ Magazine’s list of Top 100 clubs in the world in 2006, 2007 and 2010.

Home Club is an intimate alternative to Singapore’s mega-clubs, and is our nation’s preferred underground club. The music they play reflects this, so expect to hear more indie, electro, dubstep and psy-trance tunes and beats; perfect for those who are tired of mainstream music. A versatile space, an intimate surrounding and a venue dedicated to the exposure of new sounds, it is an entire philosophy in itself, and certainly promises to be quite different.
