Zetland Hall

Zetland Hall hosts the vast majority of Hong Kong's Masonic activities. Located at No. 1 Kennedy Road on Hong Kong Island, Zetland Hall offers meeting rooms, practice rooms, and a library as well as a bar and banqueting and restaurant facilities.

Zetland Hall is owned by the Freemasons of Hong Kong and administered on their behalf by a board of trustees, consisting of one representative from twenty-five of the twenty-nine Craft Lodges resident in Hong Kong.

The Hall is managed by a General Manager who is assisted by a Masonic Custodian, plus a range of full-time and part-time staff.

Who may use Zetland Hall?

All members of a Masonic Lodge, Chapter, or other side-order meeting at Zetland Hall may use the Hall and all of its facilities.

Guests - both ladies and gentlemen - may be brought for lunch on weekdays: the minimum dress code is 'smart casual'. Guests may be brought into the bar area on weekday evenings and Saturdays, but only when no Masonic meeting is scheduled. A member is responsible for his guest's purchases and behaviour, and he may request that his guest be allowed to sign the Visitors' Book.

Overseas visitors

Members of Lodges and other Masonic bodies overseas, which are recognised as regular by the Grand Lodges of England, Scotland, and Ireland, are very welcome at Zetland Hall and may use all of the facilities. On arrival, please introduce yourself to the General Manager, meet the Masonic Custodian, and sign the Visitors' Book.

Where is Zetland Hall?

Zetland Hall is in the Mid-Levels district of Hong Kong, just above the Central business district, and just off Garden Road. It is right next to the Kennedy Road Peak Tram station. If you are visiting Hong Kong for the first time, ask your taxi driver to drop you off at "1 Kennedy Road", or at "gin nei dei do yat ho" (Cantonese) or "jian ni di dao yi hao" (Putonghua). It is a five minute taxi ride from down town Central or Admiralty, and the trip should cost no more than HK$50 from most hotels on Hong Kong Island.

The location page has a map and instructions in English and Chinese that you may print out.

Meetings at Zetland Hall

There are usually two Masonic meetings on weekday evenings, and occasionally there is a Masonic meeting on a Saturday (There are Masonic meetings throughout the year, but there are no 'daylight' Lodges).

Each day, by dialing 2810 4050, you can access a voice mail message telling you what meetings are taking place that evening, and the time they start (NOTE: Most Masonic meetings usually start at 1830, with members arriving at Zetland Hall around 1800).
