Hg2 : The Hedonist

The China Club

The China Club is the brainchild of Shanghai Tang founder Sir David Tang with branches in Hong Kong and Singapore. Non-members are allowed to visit the hotel occasionally and it is a truly unique experience. A few minutes by taxi from the Forbidden City, the hotel is housed in a 400-year-old palace originally built for Emperor Kangxi’s 24th son. There are only eight guestrooms exquisitely furnished with Ming and Qing dynasty antiques and shocking bright pink accents. No expense was spared in the renovation to install the pavilion of guestrooms and the service harkens back to a more privileged era. Scattered among the five courtyards is a 1920s-style cigar bar, banquet hall and 14 private dining rooms. The Club’s Sichuan kitchen is said to have been a favorite of Communist Party leader Deng Xiaoping. Come here to hobnob with the Communist party elite and China’s new rich.
