It keeps getting Better Together. Zoku and Parade present…

Night at the Parade

Still reminiscing about the Parade from last year? We are too! Since we need a bit of fun now more than ever, we’ve teamed up with Parade, under the name “De Parade Gaat Door”, to bring the theater festival you love to the hallways of Zoku.

So what’s happening? It’s time to get cultured. In collaboration with the largest theater festival in the Netherlands, you can experience an overnight Loft series that includes hallway Parade theater performances (both safely in-person and via Zoom), delicious food and drinks, a Silent Disco distant dance hour, and an overnight stay – all from within your own private Zoku Loft!

And we're back! Join our next edition on April 16th & 17th

Following all RIVM measures and recent government safety guidelines, we’re excited to bring back the next chapter of our series to hallways of Zoku this March. Get your ticket while there’s still some left!

How does it work? We can’t fit the famous Parade carousel within the halls of Zoku (trust us, we’ve tried!), but we can bring everything else. All you have to do is kick back, relax, and show up ready to have fun. Here’s the lowdown:

  • After receiving an introduction from the Parade via Zoom, there will be hallway performances by talented dance group LucyONES and music from singer Stephanie Louwrier. With benches placed in the doorframe of your Loft, you’ll be all set to watch the acts perform live at a safe 1,5m distance from your friends and neighbors.
  • Throughout the evening, we’ll have the famous Parade hosts, “De Snoepmeisjes” to guide you through what’s to come so you don’t miss anything.
  • Feeling like a Top Chef? Get ready to show off your cooking skills. A 3-course DIY menu, curated by Parade chef Merijn van Berlo, will be all set and ready for you to prepare from right inside your Loft. Don’t worry – it’s easy and Merijn will virtually show you how!
  • So you can keep up the party vibes safely from your Loft, you’ll also receive an exclusive Parade themed wine from Grapedistrict and a fun and (virtually) interactive Silent Disco.

Available for 2 nights only, get ready to join us on Friday 16 April or Saturday 17 April starting at just €162 p.p. (based on 2 person occupancy per Zoku Loft). You won’t want to miss it!

Stephanie Louwrier

Stephanie Louwrier has been a regular face at theater festival Parade for years. After the success of her first song, Louwrier was eager to make the tents of the Parade unsafe with her pounding beats. During the Parade at Zoku, alongside guitarist Norman Kapoyos, she will make her songs small and intimate. If you close your eyes for just a moment, you can still imagine yourself in a damp tent with a sweaty crowd, and the sound of a carousel spinning in the background.

LucyONES

You can expect a powerful dance performance in which everything is shown and where freedom takes over from expectations.

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.

THE LARGEST THEATER FESTIVAL IN THE NETHERLANDS

Theater festival Parade is the only traveling theater festival in the Netherlands.

Normally during summer months, there are about 80 different theater, dance, mime and music performances for young and old. These last on average of about 30 minutes, so you can easily see two, three or even four performances during your visit. Despite the fact that the Parade was unable to open its gates this summer, you can still enjoy the Parade atmosphere in a new location. Under the motto “De Parade goat door”, various events were initiated, including delightful Parade evenings in Zaal 3 (The Hague), Paradiso (Amsterdam) and the Parktheater (Eindhoven). Now the Parade is bringing a special program with two shows, a dinner and Silent Disco to Zoku on April 16th & 17th.
