There’s no doubt that the entertainment scene in Rodney Bay has been a much appreciated part of the party-goer’s experience here in Saint Lucia. Over the years, new spots have popped up becoming quite popular, while some have lost the hype and appeal they started with. But there’s one thing we can all agree on, there isn’t a true club in St. Lucia, much less in Rodney Bay where young professionals can kick-back and enjoy the night-life that is needed after a tasking week at the office.
The wait is now over because the void has been filled by ZEN. Conceptualised and developed by Kurt and Katama Elibox of Blueprint Entertainment, ZEN was brought to life with a bang on Thursday evening December 8th 2016 at 7pm. The power couple believes execution is key when delivering a high quality experience that makes every second worth it. This is evident in their track record of orchestrating quality entertainment in St. Lucia as they’ve played a huge role in executing memorable events such as H2O Wet Fete, Caribbean Soca Festival and Twilight. In Katama’s own words, “It’s a breath of fresh air! A chic, elegant and sophisticated club for young professionals.” She also stated that Zen was an appropriate name for the club because of their current spiritual state of mind. Zen can be defined as balance and harmony with the way things are.
The ZEN experience flows over into every aspect of the club. Upon entry the Zen logo pattern can be seen on the floor tiling and the head of the motionless Buddhist monk lost in deep meditation can be found in the aquarium. The social area contains two Heineken lounges and a decorated premium bar which will not disappoint. The spacious air conditioned dancehall floor also contains a bar and a private dance area. Another amazing attribute of Zen is Lotus. Lotus is a premium reservation only VIP lounge meant to host 10 persons who want to enjoy the night in a private setting with butler and bottle service. There’s also a sushi bar appropriately named ‘Zen Sushi’ for clubbers to enjoy. The staff who are decked out in black polo shirts with silver bow ties are ready to promptly serve you.
ZEN’s opening hours; Thursday & Sunday from 6pm and Friday & Saturday from 9pm. Party-goers are required to present a valid form of ID before entry and a chic dress code will be in full effect. So keep your caps and flip-flops at home! Based on the grand opening nights, everyone was totally on board with it.
In attendance for the grand opening ceremony were several persons from corporate St. Lucia, also including the Prime Minister Hon Allen Chastenet and Minister for Equity, Social Justice and Empowerment Hon Leonard ‘Spider’ Montoute who assisted in ribbon cutting ceremony.
Since the officially opening, Zen has already touched the hearts of party-goers and is now the trending topic when it comes to Saint Lucian night-life!
