Those in the know will be more than familiar with the perks of being a member of a private club––and here in Hong Kong, we’re lucky enough to have some of the very best. But if you’re a seasoned traveller looking for a second home away from home, or you’re just curious as to how the other half live, we’re letting you know all about some of the most exclusive private member’s clubs in the world.
New York has many private members' clubs, but one of the most exclusive––and expensive––is Core. Though notoriously difficult to get into, Core strives to update the notion of stuffy old school clubs, creating a unique space that aims to bring together the most culturally curious visionaries from around the world. As the website puts it, Core is “a playground for the zeitgeist”.
Located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, the club offers a concierge service, event spaces, meeting rooms, a fine dining restaurant, library, gym, salon, spa and private theatre. Core also has a second club in Milan, Italy.
Location: New York, USA and Milan, Italy
Membership: $50,000 initiation fee, plus a $15,000 annual fee. Though applicants aren’t defined by the school they went to or the industry they work in, all applicants are carefully selected on the merit of their individuality and what they can bring to the table; they must also be referred by an existing member or partner of the club.
