SINGAPORE - Iconic Singapore nightlife venue Zouk has moved up a spot, from seventh to sixth place, on the annual DJ Mag top 100 clubs list for 2016, in results released on March 31.

The award-winning club has been in the top 10 of the global poll by the authoritative British magazine since 2010. The DJ Mag list is decided by worldwide public vote.

There is another Singapore club on the list. Ce La Vi, located atop Marina Bay Sands, made its debut on the list at the 90th spot.

The world-famous Space on the island of Ibiza in Spain took the top spot, knocking off last year's winner, Green Valley in Brazil, which fell to second place.

Another Ibiza club, Amnesia, took third place. The only Asian club to beat Zouk is Seoul's Octagon (No. 5), located in the Gangnam district.

After 25 years of operating at its Jiak Kim road venue, Zouk is set to move to its new 31,000 sq ft space in Clarke Quay later this year. The club is taking over the space where previous occupants have failed to take off, such as Zirca and Ministry of Sound.
