If you ever go to Hong Kong, check out town’s most fabulous and exclusive club named Tazmania Ballroom. Owner Gilbert Yeung knows what the elan party crowd wants; this is a club how a club should be.
The interior at Tazmania Ballroom is overwhelming. Starting at the entrance you will find yourself in a totally different world when you walk through the meters long corridor with it’s trigonometrical dark lightened walls. Once you’ve entered the main area you’ll be flabbergasted by the modern and rigid, yet rugged and rich interior which breaths luxury.
It is Tom Dixon’s latest showpiece, Tazmania Ballroom in Hong Kong, opened recently in the Central District (Lan Kwai Fong) where more than 100 bars, restaurants and entertainment venues attract people from around the world.
Tazmania’s owner is Hong Kong entertainment entrepreneur Gilbert Yeung Kei-lung. With his British boarding school and Canadian college upbringing, he wanted a British private-club atmosphere, but without the stuffiness.
He tapped Dixon’s Design Research Studio and lead designer Helene Bangsbo Andersen who employed refined James Bondish snobbery with its retro high-tech and combined it with a confident, cool club atmosphere.
The result is an exclusive and glamorous mix of a pool hall/private club/dance club/night club. Golden pool tables are magically lifted to the ceiling making room for one of Hong Kong’s largest dance floors where resident DJs keep the carefully screened guests hopping with the latest Funktion One ound system.
Dixon’s own pieces decorate the opulent space including the Cone, Pipe and Copper Shade lights and the Offcut Stool.
Gilbert Yeung is also the founder of the Dragon-I bar and restaurant, Busy Suzie and Brother & Sister store and cafe. He is the son of Albert Yeung Sau-Shing, Hong Kong entertainment tycoon and chairman of the media conglomerate Emperor Entertainment Group.Photo Credits | Courtesy of Tazmania Ballroom
