Do you:

Option 1: Stay at home, click “I’m still watching”on the remote, and order some pizza?

or

Option 2: Book a ticket to “Make Your Own Adventure” and show off your cooking skills during a safe and exciting night out?

New to Zoku?

YOUR NEXT HOME/OFFICE HYBRID

You could call Zoku a re-invented apartment hotel – in fact – Zoku creates a new category in the hotel industry: a home-office hybrid, which is a relaxed place to live, work and socialize with like-minded people while getting wired into the city.

Unlike standard hotel rooms where the bed takes up most of the room, our innovative Lofts function like a real apartment. They have a raised (and super comfy) bed so you can spend time in your room, have enough space to move around, and actually feel comfortable having a dinner party – just like you would at home!

Each Loft is private, sleeps two, and contains a full living room, kitchen, bathroom and a big kitchen table. You can even personalize your space by choosing your favorite artwork to hang on the walls and inspire you during your stay.
