Lim Keong Hui, the Deputy CEO of Genting Berhad and son of the group’s Chairman and CEO Lim Kok Thay, has opened his latest Zouk nightclub venue at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Zouk Las Vegas opened its doors for the first time on 17 September, with superstar Dutch DJ Tiësto performing in the venue’s substantial 26,060-square-foot main room. The nightclub is located along a 70,000-square foot retail space called The District at RWLV, home to the property’s other nightclub venues Ayu Dayclub, Fuhu restaurant and lounge and RedTail sports bar.
The 37-year-old Lim purchased the Zouk Group from Genting Hong Kong, of which he was previously Deputy CEO, in September 2020 as the cruise ship giant looked to offload non-core assets to preserve capital due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Zouk, previously purchased by Genting Hong Kong in 2015, already operates a nightclub in Singapore under the Zouk name and has expanded to Kuala Lumpur and Resorts World Genting via franchise.
Its latest home, RWLV, opened on 24 June and when fully ramped will offer more than 40 F&B outlets, a 5,000-capacity concert and entertainment venue, 250,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space, a 5.5-acre pool complex and 117,000 square feet of casino floor with 117 table games and 1,400 slot machines, plus five private gaming salons.
It will also boast 3,500 hotel rooms across three Hilton brands – Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World, Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World and Crockfords Las Vegas – and has been touted as the most technologically advanced property on the Strip with cashless payment technology resort-wide, including on the gaming floor.
