Open the door to your home away from home.
An oasis in the heart of bustling Orchard, The American Club offers an exclusive getaway. Here, you can find everything you need under one roof, from dry cleaning to a good, old-fashioned burger; a serene spa; fun kids’ activities; beloved holiday events and much, much more.

And, in case you haven’t heard, The Club unveiled a much-anticipated renovation in late 2019, including its invitingly modern lobby and entrances, four restaurants and bar plus the family-friendly bowling alley, pool and kid-tastic play zones.
