Empire Club

A swanky sit-down lounge away from the party crowds.

Publish Date: 07 February 2020

At a glance: A “luxury private club” complete with walk-in humidor.

How it looks: Swanky. Though it is open to the public, Empire is a good choice if you want to get away from the crowds. Dark woods and plush leather lounges give off something of a speakeasy vibe conducive to kicking back with cigars and a good whiskey.

What you dance to: This is more of a sit-down-and-tap-your-foot kind of place. Live music veers in a vocal jazz direction, while DJs spin a mix of chillout and lounge tunes.

When to go: You don’t go here to go wild. Empire is the kind of place for chill pre-drinks or to keep it classy with a nightcap on the way home. Note that members are given seating priority over guests and the dress code is smart-casual.

Drink this: They’ve got a great selection of whiskey, rum and wine, while cocktails are definitely more elevated than most in town.
