Award-winning Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) is not only known for his dedication to films and music, but also for his knack for business.
According to Jayne Stars, the 33-year-old is the CEO and founder of successful post-production company, Post Production Office Group, which has offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Along with good friend Stephanie Che (車婉婉), Nicholas also co-established the food company Win-Mill Group Limited in August 2012, investing on a Michelin-starred restaurant in Wan Chai.
In addition to his investments in the film and food industries, Nicholas has also been involved with club organizations. It has recently been known that Nicholas was invited to be the Asian-region strategy director for the Linx Royal Members’ Club, a club produced by the ABC International Group.
As one of the celebrity shareholders for ABC International, Nicholas was tasked to work on building a high-end private nightclub for Linx in Shanghai, which had its grand opening last week.
Reportedly, members of the Linx club are VIP members of ABC International, and the lowest entrance fee is at least 25,000 RMB.
The futuristic interior design of the club aims to give its members an “out-to-space” experience, and Nicholas’ club takes on hefty competition with Carina Lau’s (劉嘉玲) own high-end nightclub, Muse 2, which is located across the street.
The opening of the Linx Royal Members’ Club earned the support of many socialites and influential leaders around the world, including Albert II, Prince of Monaco, and Allan Zeman (盛智文), the father of Lan Kwai Fong.
Prince Albert also gifted Nicholas a set of silver-coated drink ware, which was used at his family’s royal weddings. An international fashion brand is also interested in inviting Nicholas as their market planner.
Last year, Nicholas was spotted looking through empty shop spaces in Central, and reports at the time predicted that he was planning on opening a new restaurant.
However, recent reports claim that Nicholas is thinking about opening up Hong Kong and Singapore branches for the club. He originally planned to rent the top floor of the International Finance Center for the club, but lost the spot to other investors.
