Sometimes bigger isn't always better. At 36,000 square feet, Zouk isn't the largest nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip, but it's easily one of the best. The venue is loaded with sizzle and style, making it one of the top attractions at Resorts World, the first hotel property to be built from the ground up on the Strip in more than a decade.
The star power is undeniable. Tiesto and Zedd are Zouk's top attractions with exclusive residency engagements. G-Eazy, DJ Snake, Disclosure, Becky G and Madison Beer are among the other acts signed for regular appearances. The main room is a spectacle on its own, but opens up to an extension called the Empire room, which has a separate bar and can be closed off as a club-within-a club.
The main dance floor is relatively small by Vegas standards, so most general-admission ticket holders will be relegated to Empire's common areas. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since everyone will have a decent view of the stage. Just keep in mind, this is a club that's heavily targeting table reservations. It's all about bottle service and high-price minimums.
You get what you pay for. Zouk is an impressive technological wonder. A large LED-enhanced chandelier (known informally as "The Mothership") is spectacular. It hovers and shifts direction above the dance floor, sometimes traveling behind the DJ booth. Throughout the evening, the mothership will change color and even project beams of light toward not only performers on stage, but specific tables during bottle service presentations. If that wasn't enough, 30 LED video panels hang underneath the ceiling. They also move and can be enhanced with custom graphics.
Zouk further sets itself apart with a craft cocktail program. Pay a visit to the Capital Bar (outside the main club) which has a circular counter and eye-popping digital screens. The bartenders will serve up libations like Beam Me Up (a negroni with the sparkle of grapefruit soda) or Capital Spritz (an Aperol Spritz with Ketel One Grapefruit & Rose) — all served in acrylic glassware to avoid any dangerous breakages on the club floor. The cocktails are also available at other bars throughout Zouk. Some even come with the unexpected touch of herbal garnishes.
The nightclub has a prime location next to Ayu Dayclub (also operated by parent company Zouk Group) and as long as there isn't a conflicting event, guests will be able to wander outside and catch some fresh air by the pool deck. Another sister concept, Fuhu, is a restaurant with a lounge atmosphere just steps away from the nightclub entrance. It's a perfect location for vibe-dining and to pregame with a meal before joining up with the party crowd.
