Meetings and Events


The Club has a number of different rooms that can be used for private functions. Depending on the date and hour of your function, the rooms may be available.

We know that making preparations for even small-scale events is time-consuming and often difficult. That is why when you contact our Space Coordinator you will be guided through choosing the best space, room configuration, audio-visual equipment, and menu to accommodate your needs. On the day of your function, our trained staff will closely supervise and provide support at all times to ensure that all of the details are exactly as you had envisioned them.

1st Floor Meeting Rooms

The floor where you entered the Club would have once housed the kitchen and dining room. The main or “parlor” floor contains the principal meeting rooms, much as they would have held the formal parlor and family sitting room during the Victorian area.

The South Lounge


The largest room known as the South Lounge will easily accommodate one hundred for a cocktail party. It is available for private functions.

The North Lounge is frequently in use for small functions such as meetings. For a number of years The Grand Central group of AA has met here Monday through Friday evenings from 5:30 – 6:30. The room remains as it was when the building was a private home. For larger groups the pocket doors can be opened and it can be used together with the adjacent Obolensky Room.
