The Whale Club promises a touch of luxe escapism when it opens as Hong Kong’s newest private club next year.
Hong Kong has a long legacy of private clubs. The Hong Kong Club was the city’s first, opening in 1846, and was followed by many other now iconic institutions ranging from the Pacific Club and The American Club, to more contemporary venues like Soho House and Carlyle & Co.
Slated as a place for ‘go-getters with exquisite and eclectic taste’, the newest arrival on the city’s private members scene is Whale Club, which promises to redefine the city escape when it opens next year. The two-storey space in the heart of Central will feature VIP rooms, a fully-stocked bar, a gallery, and a cigar room.
Dressed in deep wood with pops of colour and intriguing art pieces, the new club promises to be the ultimate setting for casual meetings, intimate events, art and NFT showcases, and private celebrations.
At the Whale Club, Executive Chef Andre L’Herminier will introduce members to ‘Refined Dining’ with a menu of pan-Asian creations based on the seasonality of ingredients in France. Inspired by his time in Asia, Chef L’Herminier will masterfully incorporate French culinary techniques into dishes that speak to the gastronomic adventurer.
A diverse list of Old World and New World wines (there is also Whale Wines, home to the best vintages, just downstairs) and exciting signature cocktails will enhance the sumptuousness of every lunch or dinner.
