Venture out to The Club, in Singapore, a stylish and cosy boutique hotel, housed in a 1900’s colonial heritage building. Whether you prefer to focus on ticking off the sights of the city or just spend your time flitting around in the culturally and historically rich area, you can enjoy life at your very own pace at The Club.
This 20-room hospitality destination is located along Ann Siang Road, just an easy amble away from Chinatown and Singapore’s central business district. Featuring an interconnected mix of bars, restaurants and luxurious rooms, a stay at The Club will not only let you regain your spirit but will also help you find the tranquility you so seek.
It caters to both the discerning travellers and locals alike, who have a penchant for the finer things in life, to stay, dine and drink. The guest rooms, housed in the colonial architecture are designed by mixing modern elements with classic details, exclusive materials and art pieces tastefully curated to engage and interest.
At The Club you will be spoilt with toiletries from the Bamford Body Collection which are made out of pure and organic ingredients. The Hypnos beds, furnished with exquisite 400 thread count, 100% Cotton Sateen bed linens, and made from the finest natural, sustainable and breathable fibres, allow you to rest deeply and wake up fresh to enjoy your time away from home to the fullest.
The Club features 20 luxuriously appointed rooms and a variety of food & beverage venues – Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s, the rooftop bar, Tiger’s Milk, The Disgruntled Brasserie, and B28 – all under one roof. Mr & Mrs Maxwell’s is the veritable living room of The Club. It is open all day every day from 11am to 11pm. Guests and walk-in visitors can enjoy great coffee and small bites at noon as well as avail of an extensive selection of drinks and cocktails in the evenings.
B28 is located in the basement of The Club; its secluded address provided the inspiration for the name of the bar, which comprises the word “B” as in “basement” and the number “28”. B28 offers an extensive list of over 200 Scottish single malts – with a notable selection of cask strength bottling exclusive to B28 alone. This luxe bar completes the experience for the hotel guests and its discerning members with live weekly jazz performances from Thursdays to Saturdays.
Situated on the top floor of The Club and overlooking the rooftops of the Ann Siang Hill district is Tiger’s Milk – Singapore’s first Peruvian-inspired rooftop bar and grill. With a food menu featuring Para Picars, Ceviches and Anticuchos, guests can enjoy the vibrant flavours of Peru through a grazing dining concept designed to encourage the social and familial style of dining.
Drawing inspirations from some of the oldest pisco bars in Lima, Tiger’s Milk also features a library of piscos for guests to choose from. An extensive list of pisco-infused concoctions exclusively developed by the Tiger Milk’s team of bartenders is on offer complimented with music exploring the many rich and colourful textures of South American culture.
Also, located within The Club is The Disgruntled Brasserie, a sister outlet of the acclaimed The Disgruntled Chef at Dempsey. Unlike its fine dining counterpart, The Disgruntled Brasserie is a modern European brasserie with a relaxed atmosphere; the food philosophy though, stays true to the concept of both large and small plates.
The Club’s interconnected plan allows one to navigate from one awe inspiring venue to another and relish the unique food and beverage offerings of each place comfortably.
The hotel’s proximity to the smorgasbord of street food at nearby Maxwell Road Hawker Centre and up market eateries in Ann Siang Hill allows the guests to indulge themselves some more. Good service is everything when it comes to good hotels and The Club pulls out all the stops in this area. The smiling, caring and efficient staff fulfills every need even before it is expressed.
Travellers who have had enough of the expensive and done to death, high-rise stretches of Orchard Road and Raffles Avenue will love the quiet charm of The Club which effortlessly merges comfort, laidback living and heartfelt hospitality into one wonderful property overlooking the city’s rooftops.
With The Club you have a winner of a downtown hub-cool, chic, and super comfortable with a unique home-grown ambience that allows you to get a ring side view of the pulsating core of Singapore. After a stay at The Club, what lasts are the moments that moved your soul and rejuvenated your body, long after you are back home.
