One of the world’s most famous nightclub brands is headed for the $4.3 billion Resorts World project, still pushing for a summer 2021 debut on the north Strip.
Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk Group, first hinted last October during an interview with Augustman magazine that the Singapore-born Zouk nightclub planned to open at Resorts World, and newly filed paperwork confirms the trailblazing club will become the entertainment anchor for a huge collection of amenities that Li ultimately hoped would include a beach club, bars, a restaurant, and an Asian food street.
Proving some of that vision is already on the way to Las Vegas Boulevard, the under construction, Asian-themed, Urban Food Street dining experience was uncovered earlier this year and new filings indicate it will join the first U.S. expansions for the RedTail bar and Fuhu, the self-described “vibe dining restaurant” at Malaysia’s Resorts World Genting.
Overseen by “Demon Chef” Alvin Leung and named after the Mandarin word for “lucky tiger,” the original 5,000-square-foot Fuhu seats 150 inside a high-end shopping mall and serves a contemporary Chinese cuisine menu, including the Fuhu roasted duck with truffle morel sauce, Boston lobster noodle, duck essence porridge, and a cocktail menu prepared in unique glassware for each drink.
Inspired by the red tail panda and also located with Genting’s mammoth hilltop resort, RedTail pitches itself as a “casual pre-game spot” and “a millennial magnet” featuring its own cocktail creations, shared contemporary Asian bites, plus beer pong, Jenga, and video games, all accompanied by a soundtrack curated by Zouk DJs.
Yet to share details of the size or design, Zouk will become the Las Vegas resort’s nightlife focal point, building on its almost three-decade dominance as a state-of-the-art destination in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia, promised by Li to be on track for “one of the biggest openings in a decade for Vegas.”
