The Club's First Year Anniversary - Media invite

Last Thursday, I was invited by Huntington Communications for The Club’s First year anniversary. Located right smack Telok Ayer and Ann Siang hill, which means it’s just stones-throw away from the office and super convenient for dropping by for an after-office rendezvous. The theme of the event is The Great Gatsby – who wouldn’t be excited with the 1920s glam- pearl necklace, feather headbands and whisky shots so I said, I was in. Another reason I was down is because they’ll be unveiling The Disgruntled Brasserie. This is by the same people who manage The Disgruntled Chef at Dempsey Hill and the popular bar and dining chain, Harry’s.

Although I frequent the Ann Siang area (once a week), I never really paid attention to The Club – for one I thought it was a just a hotel and second, if they had drinks they’d probably cost an arm and a leg. But thankfully The Disgruntled Brasserie is more casual with dinner plates ranging from $26 - $38. The environment is cozy and posh without being intimidating. I could imagine it being perfect for dinner dates or that much needed girlfriend R&R.

We got to try the platter of appetizers – my favourites are the Snow Crab Pasta, Steak Tartare and Beet-cured Salmon. If the appetizers were not mouth-watering enough, the mains were to die for. We had the Baked Miso Cod ($38) and the Foie Gras Beef Burger ($28). The cod was so fresh, it melts in your mouth. You’re in for a surprise once your teeth sink in the Foie Gras burger, because the Foie gras would just be oozing out f the beef patty. Although admittedly I was already full at this stage with the food and the free-flow white wine, there’s always room for desserts and the desserts were in the form of Lemon Tart Brulee ($14)  and Sticky Toffee Pudding ($14).  Being the fruity and sour-person that I am, be it coffee, cider or desserts. I preferred the Lemon Tart over the pudding.

After eating, we were taken for a tour, firstly to digest the massive meal we had and secondly to see the whisky bar on the basement called B28, the dreamy suite room at The Club Hotel and finally the Peruvian-inspired rooftop bar called Tiger’s milk where we ended the night. Overall, it was such a chill and palate-satisfying evening and it would surely be a new spot to check out. Sharing some snaps with newly-married bae, Janice (congrats love!).
