A FAMILY OF PEOPLE WHO SAVOR LIFE.
The Club is among the most unique private clubs in the region and country. Despite our mod architectural jewel we call home, you’re met with an extended hand and some old-time hospitality ready to assist you. Some might call this southern hospitality. We call it The Club family.
When The Club opened its doors in 1951, Birmingham had never seen anything like it. Perched on top of Red Mountain with its “007” charm and sweeping panoramic views of the city, the building flows in an out of its naturally wooded setting practically touching the star-studded skies. It is a conversation piece offering its ‘stage’ as a unique setting for dining, entertainment, private functions, or simply to laze and linger. And like the city it overlooks that has evolved in the last 60 years, so has the membership of The Club which includes gen-y, gen-x, baby-boomers, veterans, and a socially and ethnically diverse family. All the members of this family, however, have a common thread: the desire to savor life.
A CUT, FAR ABOVE THE REST.
Created by the young and talented architect, John Davis, The Club features a distinctive and contemporary design of cantilevered roofs, white stucco walls, and parabolic forms – everything but traditional. The service and the amenities of The Club, on the other hand, take great pride in the tradition of private clubs by surpassing expectations and catering to the needs of its members. Many people think of private clubs as stuffy venues where members join more for status than for fun. At The Club, nothing could be further from the truth.
Over the years we have listened to our members and their ever-changing tastes and we have grown with them. Since its inception, we’ve added two reception areas, a ballroom, several state-rooms, two more dining venues, and the necessary infrastructure to serve their operation. Today, the original Club serves as the main entrance with its porte-cochère and the now-famous neon sign that welcomes you. But whether you walk into the staterooms, one of three restaurants, or one of the lounges, they all converge on the Club’s patio, soaring far above the city, far above the rest.
