People Supporting the Arts



The club will accommodate any member by offering a table in the Kiva or on the Terrace during warm weather to enable members to privately dine with family and guests at both lunch and dinner.  Many members use the Club for all of their dinner parties.  Members are also able to eat meals served at the new bar installed during the 2013 Renovations.

For many members the “Members Table” is one of the most cherished privileges of membership.  The Members Table is open to all members who come to the club for lunch. This long standing tradition insures that individual members who come to the club for lunch will be able to eat with other members and participate in on-going conversations, serious or otherwise.  Eating lunch at the Members Table is where Cliff Dwellers get to know each other and where ideas are exchanged, discussed and civilly debated.

While the Club has standard Lunch and Dinner Menus, Chef Victor offers the soup of the day as well as daily entrée specials.  Tuesday is often referred to as “Buffet Day” for the Buffet that is served at lunch.

Members frequently hold special events at the club such as weddings and receptions.  Members are encouraged to host events at the club for other organizations that they belong to which do not have a permanent quarters.  Special events may be booked by contacting Club Manager Don Santelli at 312.922.8080.  There are charges for holding events at the Club on Saturday nights and on Sundays and for holding an event that requires exclusive use of the club.  One of the benefits of holding a special event at the club is the ability to work with the Chef to have a special meal prepared or to have a themed menu
