Setting international standards
Established in 1925, The American Club is one of Asia’s leading, premier clubs located in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central District. It provides members, and their families, with a distinctive gathering place for social, recreational and business activities whilst still maintaining a characteristic American atmosphere. Memberships include the use of sports facilities, fine dining experiences and a range of event spaces for private hire.
Reconstructing a piece of American history
To help give The American Club an authentic look and feel, our project team helped source and import a 135 year old bar from Billy’s Restaurant in New York City as a showpiece for one of the new lounges. The 48ft antique bar was delivered in 3 large pieces and re-assembled on site over a 2 week period.
In homage to its beginnings, the bar now serves American craft beers, classic cocktails and a large selection of unique American bourbons, spirits and moonshines.
Gleeds cost and project managed the refurbishment of the 3,000m2building, and in doing so achieved a 25% cost saving. Works included the reconfiguration of:
- 6 dining and bar spaces
- Private dining areas
- A gym with changing and wash room facilities
- 2 outdoor terraces
- Major M&E works
