Empire by Zouk has recently opened its doors officially in Resort World Genting on 21st November. However, if one club is not enough, keep the party going all night long by heading to the main club Zouk, opening 31st December 2018 with a special New Year’s Eve party. DJ Che Molly from one of Zouk Singapore’s repertoire of resident DJs will be on hand to usher in 2019. Chosen to be the club’s first female resident for her versatility and adaptability, Che’Molly is well versed in multiple genres of dance music ranging from commercial EDM, to her personal favourite, the underground sounds of House and Techno. Entry is only RM50 which includes one drink.
The clubbing experience in the country is about to get bigger and better than ever with Zouk Atrium which will encompass the main club Zouk, Empire by Zouk, RedTail by Zouk, RedTail Karaoke as well as a RedTail BBQ outlet and Fuhu a new vibe dining restaurant in 2019, all in one trendsetting space. Empire is one of Zouk Genting’s two club outlets, and one of the newest concepts introduced under the Zouk umbrella. The idea behind Empire stems from a hip-hop themed, dual club-lounge that is reminiscent of the upscale, private lounges in New York.
“Resorts World Genting was a natural fit since it is the pioneer integrated resort of our parent company,” said Andrew Li, Executive Director & Chief Executive Officer Zouk Group. “With the introduction of Zouk, it is our hope to expand its market segment, enhance and diversify the lifestyle experiences in the resort. I’m excited for guests to experience the music and vibe at Empire. Deliberately apparent with its references and swanky design language, the space to me, is captivating with an old-school charm that is further amplified by music that will be played. Zouk has always been loved for being a multi-concept complex and we are looking to create that experience to the guests at Resorts World Genting. With the rising popularity and appreciation of hip-hop culture, we thought it’d be an opportune moment to introduce a brand new hip-hop angled concept.”
“We’re looking to redefine the clubbing experience yet again and I believe we’ve achieved that at Empire by Zouk,” said Joseph Ryan, Project Director of Zouk Genting. “When we started creating the space, we wanted a place that visitors would feel as if they have stepped into an alternate universe. We’ve paid attention to each detail and worked with experts in their own field in terms of lighting, the sound system and the art that is the focal point of the club to create the best club in Malaysia.”
Spanning 5000 square feet inside Zouk Atrium of over 40,000 square feet, Empire will seamlessly have an urban blend of art, fashion and music. Designed in homage to the global cultural reach of the genre, Empire drops with swagger from the Bronx-inspired graffiti to Compton-infused flows. At 6000 feet above sea level at Resorts World Genting, Empire will be the new hip-hop central of Malaysia, bringing street beats and urban vibes. In true Zouk fashion of having separate areas to cater for different tastes, Empire will be dedicated to hip hop.
Whilst food is not always the focus at clubs, Zouk Genting is looking to change that. “With the upcoming launch of Fuhu, we are looking to continue building our F&B portfolio,” shared Chef Steven Chou, Culinary Director of Zouk Group. At Zouk Genting, I will be focusing on incorporating delicious tastes, matched with theatrical presentation, exciting surrounding atmosphere and friendly yet finessed service from the moment you arrive to the minute you leave. The end goal is to contribute to building Zouk’s establishments as the ultimate hotspot for wine, dine and play.”
Adjacent to the clubs is RedTail by Zouk, a social gaming lounge decked out in eclectic art that is perfect as a pre-drinking spot with a huge variety of games such as Giant Beer Pong, Giant Jenga, fusball and even electronic games machines. If you’re a keen songbird looking to blow off some steam with friends, RedTail karaoke is the place for you with six rooms adorned with fun mascots such as Steve the drum-playing gorilla, Eddy the saxophone-playing panda and Joe the break dancing flamingo. Visitors can expect fresh new experiences with different themes across Reggae, K-pop, EDM, Rock and the Classics to explore. Visitors can then end the night by staying at one of the seven hotels spread throughout Resorts World Genting.
Empire by Zouk will be open from 11.00pm to 3.00am and is located at the Zouk Atrium, Level G of SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting. For more information, call +603 2718 1118 or visit www.rwgenting.com
