Club History

The American Club (ACC) is proud of its heritage, having provided services to the international community in Taiwan since 1968. The Club’s current building was once an American Military Club used over fifty years ago to entertain U.S. forces. Now it is a thriving hub of expatriate life in Taiwan.

The Club is about creating memories that last a lifetime. It provides the perfect venue for families having fun together and helping foreign spouses adjust to Taipei life. It also offers local and expat businesspeople platforms to network and build connections amongst the vibrant business leaders.

ACC is outward looking, consistently seeking to enhance its facilities and meet the ever-evolving needs of the international community. It sets local standards for innovation, active participation, and forward-thinking in helping its Members achieve that vital work-life balance.

The Club currently has four main dining areas, including an alfresco deck, a gourmet shop as well as several function rooms. There is a library lounge, a pool room, a beauty salon, and a spa for relaxation. The younger Members are also well looked after, with a Children’s Nursery, games and reading rooms, and a sizeable Outdoor Playground.

On the sports and recreation side, there are three tennis courts, two squash courts, a training basketball court, one of the best fitness centers in Asia, a heated 25M swimming pool with a children’s wading pool, whirlpool, and male/female Jacuzzis and saunas. The Club’s multilingual, professional and highly trained staff — including expatriates who are certified instructors and experts in their disciplines — are recognized as being the best in Taipei. Access to most of the Club’s sports and recreational facilities is unlimited and is included in the monthly dues.

The Club’s membership includes over 40 nationalities, right here in Taiwan. Our members are known for being dynamic, positive and vibrant leaders in their professional fields.

Governed by an elected Board, there is a vested interest which ensures the long-term direction of the Club is aligned to the expectations and desires of its membership. And with the Club’s financial affairs overseen by a Board of Supervisors, the Club’s long-term health is further assured.

The Club is about creating memories that last a lifetime. It provides the perfect venue for: families having fun together — local and expat businesspeople networking and building connections — foreign spouses adjusting to life in Taiwan — as well as for families, couples and singles participating in creative and interactive activities in a sophisticated atmosphere. Membership within ACC is about friends, family and community. It’s about spending time in a place where people know your name. It’s an experience and a journey.

ACC is recognized as the best that Taipei offers to the international community — camaraderie, sports, entertainment, relaxation, and a range of high-quality dining options — all together in one unique place.
