Partner Clubs/Reciprocity

The Shanghai FCC is part of an international network of professional press organizations. A valid Shanghai FCC membership card allows the holder access to the events and facilities of reciprocal clubs worldwide. While the Shanghai FCC does not yet have a clubhouse, guests from reciprocal clubs are welcome to attend SFCC events at member prices and access our network of members and information resources. Reciprocal club members who visit Shanghai regularly and wish to join the SFCC enjoy discounted membership dues.

Foreign Correspondents Club of Hong Kong
The 54-year-old FCCHK is Asia’s premier meeting place for the media, business and diplomatic community, with exclusive, first class facilities, including a well equipped Health Club and the FCC/IBM Media Room, with its state of the art computer and communications technology. Then of course there are the bars: the Main Bar, with its old world ambience is one of Hong Kong’s most popular meeting places and by common consent one of the great watering holes of the world, and Bert’s, the club’s new cellar jazz bar is one of the town’s trendiest venues for cocktails, tapas and sizzling live music. Card-carrying SFCC members can access the bars, the restaurant, the media room and the health club, and attend events of interest. Chits can be purchased at the bar or, for repeat visits, take a passport photo to get a temporary card at the front desk. A fee is required for access to some facilities.
