China Club! - A Full World Cruise Event
Go back to an era when travel to the Mysterious East was an exotic adventure. Opium dens and intrigue filled the bustling streets of downtown Singapore, the Chinese Quarter in Shanghai, and around the waterfront of Old Kowloon. In these heady days there was always a refuge for the adventurer, a place to mingle with like minds, share a cocktail with an exotic expatriate, and relax in an ambiance of style, with a local flavor. The place was 'The Club'.
Fast forward to 2013 - in the same exotic location, an exclusive and stylish venue has sprung up for locals and travelers to meet, share a cocktail, delight in a gourmet meal, and all in a sophisticated retro atmosphere surrounded by the opulence of the East. This place is the 'China Club'.
Silversea is delighted to invite you to join the Captain and select officers for dinner at the Singapore 'China Club'. Built atop the Capital Tower, this exclusive, members-only club offers spectacular views of the city and, on clear days, even Malaysia and Indonesia. Our menu will be Cantonese and the ambience China in the 30s. So please feel free to dress for the occasion. Opulent design and exotic decor are reminiscent of the glamour and ambiance of Shanghai in the early 1900s. A Welcome Lion Dance sets the mood, followed by Chinese haute cuisine created by the club's renowned chef, Spectacular views across Singapore from the 52nd floor all combine to make for an unforgettable evening.
Begin with a 30-minute transfer that takes you to the central business district, site of the elegant, members-only China Club. From its vantage point on the 52nd floor, the Singapore panorama is simply spectacular.
On arrival, two sets of elevators whisk you up 52 floors. Here, the interior of the China Club and a colourful Lion Dance evoke an atmosphere of old-world China. The tradition of the Lion Dance goes back some thousand years, conveying joy and happiness. Watch this amazing spectacle of twisting movements to the accompaniment of drum, gong and cymbal while sipping a glass of sparkling wine.
Then, proceed to the ornate dining room where the décor is based on strong Chinese traditions, redolent of old Shanghai. The juxtaposition of the new and old heightens the dramatic atmosphere of the club. A Chinese set-menu, including Peking duck, is served while you savour drinks from the open bar and the enchanting sounds of harp music in the background.
All too soon, this memorable evening comes to an end and it is time to return to the ship.
