Discreetly hidden on three floors of the old Bank of China building in Central Hong Kong, the China Club – unrelated and not to be confused with the now-shuttered nightclubs in Berlin and New York – is known for its stellar combination of traditional and haute cuisine. "It's the original China Club," says Spacey. "One of the great places, ever." The restaurant's vibe is a hybrid of classic teahouse and 1930s Shanghai nightclub. Its walls feature the contemporary art collection of the club's founder, Sir David Tang, adding a modern layer to the retro ambience. With waiters clad in Maoist uniforms, the gap between socialism and socialites becomes a blur of irony, elegance, and sweet hoisin sauce. "Brilliantly done," says Spacey. Besides Hong Kong, the club also has locations in Singapore and Beijing. [China Club; Bank St, Hong Kong, +852-2521-8888]
