Foreign Correspondents' Club, Hong Kong

The Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong, is unique. It is probably the most famous press club in the world, it is housed in a beautiful and historic Central location that provides a wealth of first-class yet cost-effective dining and recreational facilities, and it is an important media hub – providing a rare neutral platform for an impressive selection of local and international speakers. What’s more, the FCC is home to a variety of superb meeting venues, be they for press conferences, business gatherings, weddings... or just for drinks or dinner with friends.

Formed in China during the turbulent war-torn 1940s by a small group of foreign journalists who wanted a club house to meet, work and play, the FCC moved to Hong Kong from Shanghai in 1949 and has been at its current historic Ice House location since 1982.

Although the Club still plays an important media role in Asia, and remains fiercely proud of its impeccable press heritage, membership of today’s FCC is open to all and it is an assorted mix that enjoys the Club’ s restaurants, talks, concerts and more. Business people, lawyers, diplomats and many media professionals come to the Club to meet, eat, talk and relax. This diverse group has just one thing in common. They are all members of the greatest social club on earth.
