Khan Klub is popular Boutique hotel based in Peshawarmarker, Pakistanmarker. The hotel is housed in a restored Hindu Haveli that was built in 1793 by the Howrah family and is owned by Bashir Ahmed Awan. It was opened November 3, 1995 by an Irish American, Mr. Martin Jay Davis (known as Ashley), who designed and spent one year renovating the haveli with 76 refugee master artisans from Afghanistan. All fixtures, furniture and artwork were produced by Afghan refugees and Pakistani craftsmen. The haveli was restored by Mr. Davis to promote understanding in Peshawar of the importance of cultural preservation and the promotion of the arts. Mr. Davis spent 13 years in Peshawar (between 1990-2003) promoting and preserving the arts of Afghanistan and the North-West Frontier Provincemarker of Pakistanmarker.

There are 8 rooms in the hotel, each named after gemstones mined in Afghanistanmarker and PakistanmarkerLapis Lazuli, Spinel, Morganite, Tourmaline, Topaz, Peridot, Ruby and Garnet. The restaurant is designed on the pattern of a traditional Pashtun hujra with traditional bajotes (small sitting level dining tables), filigreed brass lanterns, garnet floors and handmade carpets. The Lapis room has genuine Lapis Lazuli tiles that were made by the celebrated Afghan jeweler, the late Naib-ud-din. The library and all public rooms are tiled with almandine garnet in marble. The Morganite room is tiled in Morganite crystals imbedded in marble. The entrance doors to the Khan Klub and guest rooms have original stained glass windows that were produced in Murshidabad (India) in the late-18th Century. The main structure of the hotel is made of Giant Himalyan Cedarwood. Carved Jharokas (decorative façades) and jalis (filigreed panels) are also fashioned from Giant Himalayan Cedarwood.
