The much-anticipated 1880 has announced its official opening for end-September 2017. The born-in-Singapore members’ club hopes to inspire conversations that impact society in a positive way. It does this by creating a diverse community of members who represent the collective brains of creativity, drive and passion.
Its home will occupy the third floor of the city’s latest waterfront lifestyle destination, Quayside@Robertson Quay, situated in the eponymous enclave along the Singapore River.
1880 is named for the era that Robertson Quay was built. It is the antidote to the traditional members’ club, shunning homogeneity, while championing diversity, ingenuity and global citizenry. The four pillars of the club are membership, design, events and hospitality.
Further setting it apart is its unique formula of combining a social club and co-working space. The latter is named Bardo, the Tibetan word for “an intermediate state”, implying a clean slate and clarity of mind free of external influence. The intent is to blur the line between work and life – perhaps even redefine the somewhat antiquated notion of work- life balance – by seamlessly integrating both concepts within 1880.
In particular, 1880 is designed to be the golf course for women, embracing their lifestyles. It is intended that the club eventually be replicated in major cities across Asia. In doing so, it will offer women who travel extensively for work and play an inspiring space to drop in to. While there, they might have the opportunity to meet like-minded people through an event, or even catch a film about social justice.
1880's design is conceptualised by Timothy Oulton Studio and includes an outdoor dining deck, members’ lounge, dining room, spa, grooming facilities, café, bar, cinema and library.
On one hand, members can go to the club and find a space to decompress and have fun. On the other hand, they can use it to expand their social and business network.
Based on the well-loved TV series F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Central Perk Cafe will have their soft launch this weekend and would make a nice new place to hang-out near Clarke Quay.
Other than the main set of the café, they will also be introducing an extension of a STUDIO SET area, outdoor alfresco Streets of New York (recreated indoors), and also a F.R.I.E.N.D.S corner, featuring character themed wall and iconic themed furnitures Patsy the dog, Pacman machine, Monica Kitchen, Joey Italian Fine craftsmanship cabinet and F.R.I.E.N.D.S themed merchandise with floor space totalling more than 3300sq feet.
