SINGAPORE - Come January 2015, Zouk Kuala Lumpur (Zouk KL) will be relocating from its current site at Jalan Ampang to its new home at TREC and Kuala Lumpur's (KL) largest F&B enclave located along the bustling downtown Jalan Tun Razak.
This is as its lease expires on December 31.
With a built-up space of 60,000 sq ft, the new RM38 million (S$14.8 million) nightspot will be the most expensive club ever built in Malaysia.
The new Zouk KL comprises five clubs, a VIP bar lounge, member's lounge, cafe and a rooftop deck overlooking the Royal Selangor Golf Club. Zouk KL will also offer a dedicated VIP concierge service.
TREC - which stands for 'Taste, Relish Experience, Celebrate' - is developed at an investment of RM323.6m (S$125.8 million). Comprising five zones, the lifestyle and entertainment hub sits on a 7-acre site situated directly opposite the upcoming Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) - the new financial hub of Kuala Lumpur - on land owned by the Royal Selangor Golf Club.
The five zones of TREC, each featuring a unique theme, will offer casual and fine dining, indie cafes, wine bars, pubs and lounges.
TREC is the brainchild of Cher Ng, co-founder and executive director of Zouk KL, and a joint venture between Ng, Malaysian entrepreneur Dato' Douglas Cheng and public-listed Berjaya Assets Berhad.
Ng, 42, started his career in Singapore as a DJ with Zouk Singapore club in the 1990s. He co-organised the ZoukOut music festival (2000 & 2001) before establishing Zouk KL in 2004.
