This was the ubiquitous club overlooking the trademark padang or open, grass field found in British colonial capitals everywhere like Kuala Lumpur or Singapore. The club premises were constructed in 1912 and named the Malacca Club, the recreational outlet of choice among hardworking Empire servants. It is now a museum of sorts showcasing pictures and artefacts of the Independence struggle.
