The Social Club at Surfcomber Hotel Relaunched

The Social Club at Kimpton's Surfcomber Hotel has a new look, new chef, and new menu. It might as well have a new name... if the name weren't such a perfect description for this gastro-lounge.

Formerly a front-of-hotel bar that played sidekick to the Asian-inspired Lantao Kitchen, which has since closed, the Social Club is now on the main stage. "Lantao was great, but it was really specific," says executive chef Doug Sisk, who recently joined the Social Club team and led the menu revamp. "This front space is now really the main focus."

The Social Club's position at the front of the hotel, along with an outdoor terrace on Collins Avenue will give the operation more of a street presence.
