Christchurch’s iconic Bangalore Polo Club reopens with an interior richly layered with timbers, leathers and collectibles by Paul Izzard Design, transporting guests back in time.

Entered through a discrete side door, the Bangalore Polo Club in Christchurch plays on its fabulously fictitious identity and history as a private colonial sports club. The moody, timber and leather interior is filled with period glassware, ceramics, objects and polo paraphernalia – an opulent layering extended by the club’s theme song, a ‘history’ of events and tournaments, and a nostalgic cocktail list and menu.
