The iconic Zouk Singapore nightclub hosted numerous international DJs in its rooms from March 1991 until early December 2016. The three historic warehouses on Jiak Kim Street were gazetted for conservation in 2014. Turning 105 years old this year, the three buildings are now part of Fraser Residence River Promenade, Singapore. Together with the luxurious serviced residences by Frasers Hospitality, they’re a fusion of modern architectural styles along the Singapore River.
Frasers Hospitality’s sixth heritage landmark
Officially opened on 27 September 2023, Fraser Residence River Promenade, Singapore is the sixth heritage landmark in Frasers Hospitality’s collection. The other five are located in the cities of Hamburg, Berlin, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Paris.
In acquiring these heritage buildings, including the one that used to house Zouk nightclub, the global hospitality brand fuses historical architecture and structures with a contemporary lifestyle experience for travellers. This enables the preservation of culture and heritage of historical landmarks.
