Royal Selangor Club is located in Merdeka Square. Originally, in 18th century, it was built using wood to cater for the white planters and brtish administrators. The club was formed in 1884 for the Europeans, and in 1885, the government lend money to enlarge it.

In 1889, new club house was built with 2 storeys Tudor style. However, in 1970, the main part of the house was destroyed in a fire. It was it as it was until 8 years later when it was rebuilt, maintaining the same style and structural design which cast about RM3 million.

It was previously called 'The Spotted Dog Club'. There were 3 stories behind this name. The first was a the Syer or Chief Police's wife had 2 dalmation dogs running behind her cariage and guard the place when she was in the clubhouse. The second story was that the first emblem of the club was a spoted leopard which the people thought it was a spotted dog. The third had a racist tone where the members included non-whites such as Sultan Abdul Samad, Yap Ah Loy, Thambee Samy Pillai and Asian planters.

Lastly, kindly help keep Kuala Lumpur clean by throwing rubbish into proper place.
