From humble beginnings inside three warehouses on Jiak Kim Street, Zouk is heading to Las Vegas for a project that will be comprised of two clubs, a bar and a dining venue.
Earlier this week, the Zouk Group announced that they are heading to the United States after securing a partnership with Resorts World Las Vegas. The project is due to open during the summer of 2021 and will take up 100,000 square ft of space in a new US$4.3 billion integrated resort.
The concept was developed by Malaysian corporation Genting Berhad and will be the Sin City’s largest development in almost two decades.
The Zouk Group will bring four concepts with it, including its hallmark Zouk Nightclub and gaming bar called RedTail. New concepts include AYU day club, an “outdoor oasis” with a Southeast Asian island concept, and FUHU, a high-energy experiential dining venue serving contemporary Asian cuisine.
“The partnership between Zouk Group and Resorts World Las Vegas will bring entertainment and lifestyle brands together on a property destined to breathe new life into the Las Vegas market,” said Zouk Group’s chief executive, Andrew Li.
“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. After all this pent-up frustration from the pandemic, it will be a great time to open... This world-class property is new and ready to welcome back people to Las Vegas.”
Meanwhile, Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas, said in a statement: “Resorts World Las Vegas aims to reinvent the traditional integrated hospitality experience in Las Vegas across every sector, including nightlife. In partnership with Zouk Group, we will introduce a world-class entertainment complex with a variety of unmatched nightlife experiences for our guests and visitors.”
The project marks the entertainment group's first foray outside of Asia in its three decades of operations, and certainly its most ambitious yet.
