In the year 2020, where the world seemingly changed overnight and the vibrant nightlife and daylife in Las Vegas came to a screeching halt, it might be hard to believe a brand-new 4.3-billion-dollar Mega-Club opened at Resorts World Hotel & Casino the following year. This long-anticipated resorts casino breathed new life into the north end of the Strip, and the City hasn't been the same since.
Inside this brand new luxury property, the highly-acclaimed Zouk Group, a Singapore-based hospitality brand with more than three decades of experience building the most spectacular and innovative nightlife venues and immersive experiences in the world, showcased their first-ever Las Vegas nightclub, Zouk – named after a French creole word for 'party.' Zouk features 20,060 SF of innovative space with state-of-the-art lighting and video design; it caters to a variety of artists and has become a hotspot for celebrations and special events.
In addition to the nightclub, Zouk includes three additional distinct concepts spread across their 100,000 sq. ft. entertainment and dining space: Ayu Dayclub is a hybrid beach club and pool oasis "inspired by the beauty and harmonious atmosphere of Southeast Asia's Idyllic Islands," RedTail, a social gaming, and sports bar with lively drinking games, and FOHU – an experience-based, high energy Asian contemporary dining venue.
Zouk Singapore: According to DJ MAG (UK), the award-winning ZOUK has ranked in the Top 10 of the Top 100 clubs in the world for the past 10 years, peaking as high as 3rd place in 2018. ZOUK Las Vegas plans to maintain its impressive reputation by bringing in world-famous musical talent to attract the massive crowds the club scene in Sin City is so famous for.

Where is Zouk Vegas located?
Zouk resides at the south end of the Resorts World Hotel and Casino at 3000 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, across from Wynn and Encore. The closest drop-off is the Ayu Dayclub entrance, and that can still be a bit of a walk. There are no parking lots or valet services close to the club, which is inconvenient. Your best bet is to get dropped off at the strip mall across the street and crossover Las Vegas Boulevard, then enter the southernmost entrance of the hotel mall, and you'll see the Club.
What days is Zouk open?
Thursday Doors open at 10:00 PM.
Friday Doors open at 10:00 PM.
Saturday Doors open at 10:00 PM.
Sunday Door open at 10:00 PM.
Zouk Las Vegas has 2 rooms on 1 Floor?
It sure does! To be more specific, the nightclub looks like a massive warehouse with both rooms are open. The empire room can be sectioned off to make two clubs, both with their own DJs.
Below is the breakdown:
Room 1 – Zouk Nightclub
Room 2 – The Empire Room
AYU Dayclub – The Empire Room and the stage on the day club connect
Zouk's Main Room now includes a new feature: A network of kinetic light installations they dubbed "The Mothership." It is – to put it mildly – a spectacular sight.
DJ Snake, Zedd, Deadmau5, and Tiesto at Zouk?
You can always expect high-energy courtesy of the spectacular production and incomparable DJ sets. Check out what events are happening on the link below by entering your dates of arrival. Some of the popular residents that call this venue home are DJ Snake, Zedd, Tiesto, Zhu, Deadmea5, Cash Cash, and entertainer G-Easy. Come to party and enjoy the music. Check out all of the Zouk events !
How much is it to get into Zouk?
General Admission tickets vary from event to event, with mid-level headliners like Carl Cox or Cheat Codes commanding lower price points (anywhere from $20-$50 for female tickets and $30-$50 for male tickets). Keep in mind that prices online are typically not the same as the price at the door; club management will always have the final say on what to charge if you don't buy a Zouk Las Vegas ticket before doors open.
Males $40 - $100+
Females $20 - $50+
If you don't want to deal with the hassle of sorting out entry into the venue on your own, we offer a seamless process and fantastic packages, including hosted VIP entry into the club by one of our VIP Hosts. Also, if you have a group and tickets are pricey, check out our cheap bottle service deals in Sin City!
Zouk Guestlist vs. Presale Tickets: What's better?
Getting on the Guestlist is a FREE SERVICE to sign up for, but here's the catch: You have to get there early. In the case of a marquee headliner where online prices are sky-high, and guests are getting in for free on the Zouk guestlist, you can be sure that the lines to get in on the list will be out the door. In this case, it is always advisable to arrive early before doors open to secure your spot at the head of the line.
Most Thursdays and Sundays:
Males – Free Entry before 1 AM check-in
Females – Free Entry before 1 am check-in
Males – Free or Discounted Admission (depends on headliner – early arrival recommended)
Females – Free Entry (early arrival recommended)
*Early arrival is required for Saturday events, especially with big headliners. Guestlist details are subject to capacity – if the club hits near capacity with the lines outside still full of people, the club may decide to start charging people early.
Suppose you're planning on attending a big event and can't get there early. In that case, you might want to look into purchasing General Admission tickets in advance to avoid paying the inflated price at the door and to guarantee your entry. Pre-purchased tickets automatically guarantee access to the venue; the Guestlist does not!
Pro Tip: Club guestlists are geared more toward female patrons. All-female groups typically have a little more leeway in arrival time on big nights, while groups with males in their party might not have the same time luxury. Contact your Exploring Las Vegas host to find out what the best course of action is for your group.

What Does Zouk Bottle Service Cost?
This venue has several areas within the club that offer different pricing tiers for bottle service:
1. Main Room Lower Dance Floor/Stage Area - $$$$
2. Main Room 2nd and 3rd Tier - $$$
3. Empire Room Tier 1- $$
4. Empire Room Tier 2 - $

Each area has several tables that have varying minimum spends. On a non-peak night, a table in the Empire room, if open, a $750 min might get a section on other night the lowest table might be 2-3K if Tiesto or Zedd is in town.
Pro Tip: Not all locations are created equal. Be sure to view the guide below to see which table is right for you and your party or contact one of our VIP Hosts for additional recommendations.
Table Service Locations
Stage Tables (15 ppl)
The best and most expensive table option at $10,000 to 15,000 is the Stage Table. Two tables eight next to the artists and a row of 3 tables behind the artists.
Lower Dance Floor (12 ppl)
One of the best VIP table locations inside the Club comes with a hefty minimum. Expect the minimum to be around $5,000 - $12,000, depending on the day and talent. There are 7 large dance floors, with Table #14 being the center “Owner’s Table.”
Upper Dance Floor (12 ppl)
One of the best table locations inside the Club with an $3000-8000 min usually depending on the artists. There are 12 upper dance floor tables.
3 Tier Tables (10 ppl)
Located on the main floor, and the minimum is prices can range from $2000-$6000 range. There are 10 upper dance floor tables some are larger than others.
Empire Room 1st Tier (12 ppl)
First row tables in the empire room usually have a $2000 to $4000 min and are located next to Zouk's Main Room. There are 6 of these prime tables in the center of the action of the Empire Room.
Empire Room 2nd Tier (10 ppl)
This is the least expensive table option inside Zouk usually $1000 - $2000 minimum, the outer row of the Empire room. There are 14 of these tables and they are very roomy.
AYU Dayclub Seating Outside (8 ppl)
AYU's two rows of prime daybeds are in front of the Club's second pool. Most of these daybeds offer a view of the stage, and they come with pillows, an umbrella, and a safe to store your belongings. If they are busy enough, they can seat the bungalows and cabanas, the main issue is from the outside looking inside there is not any view of the DJ in the main room.
What exactly is table/bottle service?
By definition, bottle service means that customers purchase alcohol by the bottle and not individual drinks at the bar. In Vegas, this equates to paying a premium price for bottles but includes a table inside the club, a personal server for your section, and VIP entry into the venue. Basic mixers are also complimentary with any table reservation – assorted juices and soda and garnishes like lemons and limes. Essentially you agree to spend a certain amount of dollars to rent the space for the night.
Does The Minimum Go Toward Alcohol?
Vegas nightclubs often operate on a minimum spend requirement (or "min," for short) system for their table reservations. The customer must either reach or exceed the amount set for their minimum spend. While the table is not charged separately, the better the location, the higher the minimum spend requirement. To reach this minimum requirement, the customer can order anything from the beverage menu (bottled alcohol, cases of beer, bottled water, Red Bulls, etc., all count toward your minimum requirement).
Group size could also be a factor in raising your minimum spend. The larger your group, the more accommodations the venue has to make to provide the same VIP experience to its customers. For example, a party of 15-20 people will require a larger space than the typical customer and require more staff service; thus, their minimum would be much higher than a customer coming in with five people.
Bottle Service Cost Worth it?
Absolutely! Whether this is your first time in Vegas or your fifth time, bottle service is the ultimate clubbing experience. While venturing onto the dance floor and exploring the venue are memorable experiences on their own, nothing is quite like being able to return to your own area, away from the crowd, and enjoy the artists' stunning performances 🎧. If your budget allows for it, I highly suggest booking Bottle Service. If you are a group of guys trying to pull girls or vice versa, tables are the key to helping that process.
How many bottles do you get with bottle service?
Truthfully, as many as you can fit into your minimum. Bottle prices start at $750 for Absolut Elyx and vary in price depending on whether you want a specific type of alcohol or a larger bottle. For example, suppose you have a $3,500 minimum and don't want to go over the minimum. In that case, you could theoretically get about four bottles (assuming you order the $750 ones) and fill the remaining minimum with small orders of beer/bottled water/Red Bulls/etc. Let your host know in advance, and we will coordinate with your server depending on your preference!
What is the tip for bottle service?
What you actually want to know is, "How much does bottle service really cost after fees?" Assuming you have a $3000 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the final bill would break down:
$3000 (Min Spend)
$283.28 (Nevada sales tax is 8.375% on the Minimum plus Venue Fee)
How do I make a reservation, and can I choose my section?
We make reservations simple - fill out a form, and one of our VIP Hosts will be in touch shortly to go over your options. The club's management determines where to seat each confirmed table reservation. We call this "plotting the room." Once again, the higher your minimum, the better the location. We can request and promise specific table locations based on customer requests and podium tips. We call podium tips "Handshakes" in Sin City. Here's a couple of things that can help us deliver on our promises:
Arrive on time! We can secure your preferred table, but we cannot ask the venue to hold it the entire night, waiting for you to show up.
Agree to the recommended minimum for your preferred location. If you want a dance floor table, we can make that happen, provided you agree to the required minimum spend it takes to book it.
Plan on "Handshaking" for a specific table
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Ideally, you want to have the whole group together when you walk to your table. However, we understand that sometimes things can get complicated(or at least Vegas party life can). Suppose your table has already entered and is sitting; in that case, the person joining you can go up to the host standing at the table reservation line and give your table number plus the name the table is booked under (you can find out your table number by asking your server or security staff if you are unsure).
How do I order a bottle presentation?
You must have a significant order placed to the waitress (usually around $2000 or more) and purchase a bottle of champagne to qualify for the presentation. Let your VIP Host know, and one of us will be happy to communicate this request to your server.
I've heard of a Girl Guy Host. What is that?
Let's say you are a group of guys who want to buy bottle service. A girl guy's job is to approach your table angd ask if you would like him to round up some girls to help fill out your table…for a tip (we call that "handshakes" in the industry). He then does the legwork of recruiting girls around the venue to introduce them to your table. The girls are happy they get to join a table, your group is happy that there are girls at your table, and the girl guy walks away happy with a handshake. Everybody wins!
But before you employ any venue's girl guy, be sure to ask your Exploring Las Vegas VIP Host (like me) first. We will have plenty of female guests in town on any given weekend and will most likely know a few at this particular venue that we can invite to your table. If your group and the girls don't mesh for whatever reason, we can always ask the girl guy to try their hand at it.
We also offer atmosphere models or a group of guys who just want some pretty Vegas party girls to hang out with at the table and keep them entertained. A good rule of thumb is a $100 an hour per girl for a 4-hour minimum.
What is the Cost of Drinks?
Drinks at the high-end venue compared to Hakkasan, Xs, and Omnia at around $12 for beers and $20-25 for mixed drinks
Vegas Bachelor Parties
There's nothing quite like showing out at Vegas' ultra-popular clubs with your boys for a final weekend of freedom. We recommend bottle service is the way to go for groups of guys planning a trip to the Vegas party scene; you're going to want a space to invite girls back to hang out! Bundle your weekend plans with dinner and open bar deals, limo services, or a visit to the famous Las Vegas Strip clubs. We know some of the guys can be a little "rusty" when it comes to picking up the ladies, so consider booking a couple of atmosphere models to get the table started.

It's good to be a group of girls in Las Vegas.

As with any nightclub in Las Vegas, management enforces a dress code. Since "dress to impress" is the motto of all nightclubs in Sin City, business casual or formal attire is recommended. Here are "no-go" items:" Shorts or Capris, Sandals/Flip Flops, Gym Sneakers, Sports Hats, Work Boots/Steel toe boots like Timberlands, Baggy Pants, Jean Shorts/Cutoff Shorts, Sweatpants, Undergarments, Jerseys and Athletic Gear, Ripped, torn, stained, see-through, or cut up clothing, Chains, Excessive jewelry
Ladies, almost anything goes as long as your skirt/dress is not too short, and your top is not too low, and if you can't manage a night in heels, please wear comfortable flats or bring foldable slippers – bare feet is not allowed and could get you removed from the club.
Please use common sense. You're in Vegas; you're out for a night on the town, so dress appropriately in clothes that make you look good and feel good. We offer a complete dress code guide to the dress code at all Las Vegas Nightclubs. If you have any questions about what to wear, we suggest you read it – it's everything you need to know before you go. No one wants to stand in long lines only to get turned away at the door because you didn't follow the dress code rules.
Security at the nightclubs is especially strict. Before you enter, you will be asked to empty your pockets or have your purse checked and must submit to a pat-down and metal detector scan – it's similar to a TSA check at the airports, only stricter.
Big Tip: You must be 21 to enter and have a valid form of ID; pictures on your phone are not accepted, and neither are papers. International guests, bring your passport; your foreign IDs will not work here.
Here are some things that you will be either asked to throw away or go back to your room to deposit before coming back:
Vapes – while weed dispensaries are extremely popular and vaping is in vogue, most venues will not allow vapes inside their premises. They will ask you to leave it in your room or, at the very least, throw away the cartridge inside, even if it isn't a CBD cartridge
Camera equipment – the only recording equipment you are allowed to bring is the one on your phone. Digital cameras, selfie sticks, et al. are not allowed into the venue.
Prescription medication (or anything resembling pills) – if you need your prescription while inside the venue, you will have to bring the prescription and explain what the medicine is for; otherwise, expect to get pulled to the side
Packs of gum – thisonly applies to day clubs, which tend to be a lot stricter about checking everything that goes into the venue, but guests have been known to try and sneak drugs inside packs of gum to get them into the venue, so expect to have your gum taken away at the door
Oversized bags – anything larger than a lady’s clutch will be denied into the venue. This applies to most backpacks, gym bags, totes, etc. While most hotels can hold onto your luggage at the bell desk
AYU, part of Zouk, is one of the newest dayclubs to hit the Sin City Strip and home to resident superstars DJs Zedd and Tiësto. This 2,874 outdoor party oasis, with its Southeast Asian vibe, is surrounded by lush tropical greenery that adds a feeling of privacy. There are a variety of beautiful VIP bungalows and cabanas available for bottle service, or guests can order individual cocktails from the drinks menu. If hunger strikes, AYU offers a mouthwatering menu of sandwiches, salads, snacks, and sides.
A Zouk Group concept, FUHU is billed as Zouk's first-ever "experiential vibe dining restaurant" with an elevated mixology program that includes specialty cocktails and sake. The menu features a wide variety of Pan-Asian cuisine featuring duck, sushi, steak, and seafood. Fuhu offers guests indoor and outdoor dining.
Redtail Social Gaming
Social gaming has taken the dining and bar scene by storm. Zouk's Redtail is a fully integrated social gaming bar that offers premium wines, beers, cocktails, sharable menus, and great gaming experiences like beer pong, pool, Jenga, and darts. RedTail's versatile space also features interactive gaming, sports betting, live entertainment, and three private karaoke rooms.
Let's look ahead. What's happening on New Year's Eve
With talent like these guys, you bet a big hitter will be playing a massive, expensive party. We can all but promise a sell-out, so get your tickets early for this one!
Exploring Las Vegas Final Word
Well, the “mothership” has landed and kudos to the Zouk Group Management team for getting the big hitters such as Tiesto, Zedd, DJ Snake, and Deadmau5. They officially pulled off a solid 1st full year and are now a major player in the Vegas day and night club scene. Ayu Dayclub is good, but not great in our opinion we like Wet Republic and Encore Beach Club better when it comes to the vibe and party. We will say that the nightclub is legit, it’s top three for sure with right up there with XS, Drai’s, and Omnia. We look forward to working with you and setting up your Bottle Service, thanks for reading until the end.
