Eating Out: China Club Hong Kong
While the food here does no justice to gastronomic city Hong Kong, The China Club Hong Kong is still a one of a kind experience and fabulous place to take visitors. The art deco interiors, well curated art collection and wonderful ambience and service makes dining here a must.
The lovely interiors are done up with art deco pieces, featuring lamps, furniture and fans reminiscent of glamorous 1930s Shanghai. The staircase that leads from bar to dining room features eclectic contemporary Chinese art pieces and one of my favourites is the porcelain dish-pond with headless ladies in qipaos by Chinese artist Liu Jianhua at the foot of the staircase.
Sir David Tang’s China Club has a strictly members only policy, but there are corporate accounts and your hotel’s concierge should be able to get you a reservation.
The China Club opened in 1991 in old Bank of China Building in Central, Hong Kong, serving up traditional and contemporary haute Chinese cuisine. The suckling roast pig is a must-order. They also have a tea master and noodle master that will perform over the course of dinner. Gimmicky? A little, but oh so entertaining, nonetheless.
I shot this on my G11 and it was edited by Panorama Productions, Hong Kong for the Swire Hotels blog.
