Zoku Vienna GmbH

Zoku, which is Japanese for family, tribe or clan, facilitates global living and working for the traveling professional. Zoku is a new category in the hotel industry: a flexible home/office hybrid, also suitable for long stays, with the services of a hotel and the social buzz of a thriving neighbourhood. You can live, work, relax and socialize with like-minded people – while getting wired into the city. 

Zoku still feels very much like the high-energy and ambitious entrepreneurial start-up from its early beginnings; yet, it also benefits from strong financial backing and a professional set-up to “make it big”. Zoku is created by a small team of highly enthusiastic and engaged individuals who bring on board bags of enthusiasm and gumption. It describes itself as “a sprawling family thanks to an amazing group of people who have supported the company over the last few years”. 

After opening the first Zoku in Amsterdam in 2016, the team started the European expansion and has now several deals in the pipeline to open in 2021 and beyond.

Further information on Zoku can be found at www.livezoku.com, as well as by browsing its various social media platforms (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Youtube).

It is also noteworthy to mention that Zoku became B-corp certified in August 2018. On its website, under the ‘Green Zoku’ page you can find an overview of Zoku’s social and sustainable responsibilities as well as its impact vision, i.e. the ‘why’ as it pertains to how we believe we can make a difference
