Despite the economic turndown, Club C+ opens as Hong Kong’s newest private members club, an exclusive enclave open to referral patrons only.
As we’ve discussed before, Hong Kong has a long and storied history of private clubs, exclusive enclaves where wheeling and dealing are de rigueur and where the well-to-do and connected can meet in suitably refined surrounds and shape the world for the rest of us.
The newest private club to open in Hong Kong not only offers members a luxurious urban retreat but one that also benefits from one of the region’s leading design talents. The creation of the Steve Leung Design Group, Club C+ (which is inspired by the Chinese for “private home”) is a new premium private social lounge, which Leung has crafted in his own personal style, blending Chinese contemporary design with British accents, unfolds a unique journey of discoveries to a limited membership selected by referral only.
At the new space, a lucky few will be able to indulge and bond over traditional Cantonese delicacies, fine wines, rare cigars, and exceptional art pieces. The secretive journey begins with a subtly illuminated Club C+ logo designed by Alan Chan, a celebrated Hong Kong designer, which guides members down to the discreet entrance set against a mysterious black façade.
Beyond, generous floor-to-ceiling windows consisting of progressive layers of apricot colour filtered panels and bronze steel metal meshes showcase the daily lives of the picturesque Duddell Street Steps, in a reinterpretation of iconic Hong Kong movie scenes. The sophisticated yet practical design responds to the refined needs of its members, offering secluded privacy throughout the day.
The new club also featuring two premiere lounges with contrasting colour combinations; each zone is designed for small group gatherings and connects seamlessly to a private dining room dedicated to hosting up to 12 guests in an intimate and upscale setting. Club C+also boasts a cigar humidor room behind the bar, housing premiere cigars from different terroirs in symmetrical cabinets to add extra glamour to the ultimate lounge experience, an effect that is accentuated by decorative lighting by Tino Kwan.
As an avid collector of art and beautiful things at large, Steve stages his contemporary art collection at Club C+, with works by both legendary Asian masters, including Lalan, a pioneer figure in integrated arts; Li Huayi, among today’s most important Chinese ink painting masters; Zhou Chunya, a renowned Chinese artist known for his iconic Green Dog series; and Kim Tschang-yeul, regarded as one of the greatest contemporary Korean painters.
The masterpieces infuse a distinctive sense of artistry throughout each corner of Club C+, inviting members to stretch their imagination in an artistic realm in which revolving artworks create an ever-changing landscape.
The result is a relaxed and connective space where exceptional experiences spanning from gastronomic adventures, and curated art exhibitions to inspiring conversations with high-achievers across multiple disciplines can be expected.
And we all love those.
