The design of The City Club ensures that there are ample meeting rooms in the Business Centre and that private dining rooms are available in each of the food and beverage outlets. Members can meet or entertain business associates, family or friends in private surroundings. If you are hosting an event and would like to hold it at the Business Centre, one of our restaurants, or one of the function rooms, please contacttccreservations@remove-this.alphaland.com.ph.  We would be more than happy to work with you.

The Management and staff join me in wishing you all a Merry Christmas and good health for the year ahead!

Yours sincerely,

Ian Gray
