Salon de Ning

Salon de Ning (Corner of Ayala and Makati Avenues, 1226 Makati City, Metro Manila) — this Manila lounge (located within The Peninsula Manila Hotel) stands out because of its theme: 1930s Shanghai (complete with Art Deco objects). Other rooms within this lounge have their own themes: The Boxing Room is a shrine to 1937 World Heavyweight Champion Joe Lewis; The Shoe Room holds 101 different pairs of shoes (reminiscent of Imelda Marcos — ????); and The Zeppelin Room – which was inspired by Madame Ning’s long friendship with the German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin.
