SINGAPORE - Zouk Singapore is now the top club in Asia according to the DJ Mag Top 100 list released on Thursday (March 30), coming in at No. 4. It climbed two spots from last year’s ranking to beat out Seoul’s Octagon, which remained in the 5th spot. 

This is the best result yet for Zouk, which moved to Clarke Quay in December last year, after 25 years at Jiak Kim Street.

The award-winning club has been in the top 10 of the global poll by the authoritative British magazine since 2010.

Another Singapore club, Ce La Vi, located atop Marina Bay Sands, also had a good showing, climbing 10 spots to No. 80.

Legendary Ibiza club Space, which is closing after 27 years, placed at the top spot on the list, which is decided by worldwide public vote.

London’s Fabric, which was forced to close and then re-opened earlier this year placed at No. 2.

Brazil’s Green Valley fell to third place, from last year's No. 2 spot. 

On Zouk’s showing, the club’s chief executive officer, Mr Andrew Li, said: “This is a remarkable climb forward and words cannot express how grateful we are to our supporters who cast their votes for us. We are extremely excited for what’s to come for Zouk and cannot wait to bring this home-grown brand further across international shores.” 

Mr David Sarner, CEO of Ce La Vi said the club feels fortunate to be held in regard so highly among the world’s best clubs.

“We have taken a very serious approach towards the party scene, with several million dollars of investments into our club’s lighting and sound, and bringing in top DJs.”
