Hip hop and r ‘n’ b have a home in the Phuture.
If you frequented Zouk pre-rework, walking into the all new Phuture is a little like collecting the keys off Xhibit in MTV’sÂ Pimp My Ride. It’s hard to imagine what you can do with a corridor and a bunch of toilets, but like West Coast Customs does with cars, Zouk has miraculously pimped up nothing into a sprawling 2-level space with all the feel good vibe of a block party and the slickness of a Hype Williams music vid.
Set up so you can bust moves all over the joint and not just on the floor, hidden corners and secret turns reveal sexy areas throughout whichÂ you canÂ park your posse at. Like it’s name, Zouk also deviated from original club thinking in Phuture’s music policy. Hip hop and R &Â B has been one of the biggest sounds to hit up Zouk in its 5-year history, and Phuture has been purpose-built for this. Dope LEDs and walls of plasma screens flicker to life with Jay-Z, Snoop, Pharrell vids and more, while a classy deck and balcony suiteÂ 1Â level up can hold more blinged-up VIPs than you can shake a magic stick at.
Clientele Hip hop homies,Â R &Â B shorties and fans of the phattest sounds around convene here to raise the roof and drop it like it’s hot.
