Popular nightclub Zouk opened its doors to partygoers at its new Clarke Quay premises yesterday.

Queues started to form as early as 9pm with about 200 partygoers gathering outside the club by 11pm.

One of them was student Denise Sim, 19, who was in the line with her friends at 10pm.

Commenting on the new Zouk, she said: "I like the interior. The lights look grand and elegant.

"I'm looking forward to a full house tonight. Zouk always provides good music, I've no doubts about that."

Zouk, one of Singapore's oldest clubs, moved from its iconic 25-year-old home in Jiak Kim Street. The club was bought over by conglomerate Genting Hong Kong late last year.

The new place, which is 898sq m in size, is located in The Cannery, a space previously occupied by Ministry of Sound and Zirca.

Among other features, the new place boasts live-streaming screens and a main dance floor that can accommodate up to 1,900 partygoers.
