The NCO Club opened earlier this year as a lifestyle destination within the upscale South Beach precinct. Within the conservation building’s halls are four venues:
- Madame Fan is a 222-seater Chinese restaurant conceptualized by restaurateur Alan Yau
- Cool Cats is a jazz bar inconspicuously tucked away from the rest of NCO Club by a doorway (which happens to have excellent soundproofing!) with a live band playing every night
- Fish Pool is a champagne and oyster bar set beside a diving pool. If you come here on the right evening, you may catch a mermaid swimming in full view!
- Stags’ Room is an intimate wine lounge that has a decor that doesn’t look out of place in exclusive gentlemen’s clubs
Recently, I was invited to check out The NCO Club – particularly the Chinese restaurant Madame Fan for a progressive and etiquette-free dining experience.
