Established in 1868, the Penang Club, in the hub of Georgetown, Penang and located at the sea front, is not only a well-preserved landmark but also has been a second home to generations of leaders in commerce, industry and government. Club Members hail from all walks of life. They are among the current generation of business leaders, professionals, academics, politicians, senior government officials, military officers, diplomats and other community leaders. Early in the Club’s history, the demand for its services caused it to outgrow a couple of clubhouses before the present one was built in 1964. The membership has increased markedly in the past few years. To serve the increased membership, extensive modernization is being planned.
The Club is striving to upgrade its facilities unceasingly, to keep up with the times and offer maximum comfort and service to its Members and guests. The Club has an active social and recreational calendar which features special dinners, buffets, club nights, guest artistes and related activities for Members, their families and guests. With the ever-increasing cost of food and beverages in hotels and restaurants, the Club minimizes it by providing similar services and facilities to Members. In short, it is a home away from home where Members feel comfortable and enjoy the amenities and facilities to their satisfaction.
