The Royal Selangor Club is also known as The Spotted Dog. The theory behind the origin of the name is unknown. However, it’s believed that the name was taken from a pet Dalmatian which belonged to a former member of the club.
The Royal Selangor Club was established in 1884 as a socializing place for the elite in Kuala Lumpur. Expatriates and officials gathered here to relax, play billiards, and watch cricket on the field which is now part of Merdeka Square.
Unfortunately, the original building was destroyed by a fire and followed by a flood in 1970. Soon an exact duplicate of the original building was constructed in 1980. Until now, the mock-Tudor edifice had hosted numerous plays and musicals. It has remains the preserve of the city’s elite.
The Royal Selangor Club is located within the perimeter of the Merdeka Square. If you are planning a trip to the Mederka Square, you are encouraged to come early in the morning as other than the Royal Selangor Club, there are other places of interests here.
