The Pencil is a community of people committed to commerce and culture, socialising and sustainability.
It is home to business professionals, creatives, socialites and philanthropists, all with one thing in common – infinite curiosity that seeks a space to serve as a conduit for their daily endeavours.
Food & Beverage
From the start, our food and beverage philosophy at the Club has always been based on three simple principles: simple, sexy, and seasonal. From our coffee beans and wine selection, to our steaks and sashimi, the fresh flavours, vibrant colours, and quality of our seasonal ingredients allow us to live our mission of providing our Members with an exceptional hospitality experience every day.
Arts & Culture
Noticeably one of the largest and most valuable art collections in the country, The Pencil’s walls are home to exquisite art from both local and international artists, with every piece available to purchase – forming the basis of what is formally known as The Pencil Art Foundation. The vision of this Foundation is to increase the value, visibility and appreciation for art and the artists alike.
Health & Beauty
An equal focus is made on both health and beauty, with access to a steam room, sauna, manicure bar, hairstylist, heated pool and a functional gym. Fitted with world-class cardiovascular, strength and training equipment, The Pencil gym is open during the Club operating hours and is bookable solely by Members.
