The one-of-a-kind leisure experience features an elegant main dining hall with seven semi-private rooms, club-style lounge and rooftop terrace for events, cocktails, BBQs and cigars under the stars.
The elegant Cantonese restaurant is helmed by expert chefs from Michelin star restaurants offering a-la-carte and “couture dining” that club members can order in advance for specially-tailored menus. Dim Sum is also available during lunch hours.
Classic jazz of the fun-filled time in a ‘speakeasy’ styled after a 1920s American nightclub underlines the club’s stylish credentials as a “quintessential rendezvous for those who appreciate the finer things in life”.
An art gallery exhibits a seasonally-changing showcase of original, carefully curated art pieces, introducing outstanding and inspiring works by both local and international emerging artists, talented individuals and groups – with various art forms from oil paintings and watercolours to photographs, sculptures and installations.
