The Historic George Town Club is one of the Most Elegant Dining Clubs in the United States, patterned after the finest in London and Paris. The Club was established in 1966 for the purpose of bringing together leaders who had an impact on the United States, and the world, through their work in various business, professional, civic, social and political milieus. Since then, The Historic George Town Club has been a focal point for entertaining prominent Washingtonians, diplomats, socialites, and leaders in business, government, and academia.
The Club occupies one of the few remaining 18th century frame buildings in the historic port district of Georgetown, and is believed to have been John Suter’s Tavern, circa 1783. In that era, inns and taverns were the focal points of community life.
In addition to offering food, drink and lodging, they were true “public houses” where political debates, civic meetings and business deals were common. It was at Suter’s Tavern where President George Washington, surveyor Andrew Ellicott, and then architect of the Capitol, Major Pierre L’Enfant, met at least three times to plan the federal city that would become Washington, D.C. When plans were completed, the first plats for the city were auctioned off at the Tavern.
After the Club opened in 1966, the founders extensively renovated the run-down historic building, added the brick entryway, excavated the lower level, imported European paneling, chandeliers, furniture, artwork, and rescued the wrought iron work by Samuel Yellin from demolition at the original Morgan Guaranty Trust Bank in New York City. Over time, the two brick townhouses adjacent to the original structure were purchased and incorporated into the Club and finished with the same care and detail as the original rooms.
The Club provides its staff, members, their families, guests, and business associates –
• A distinctive ambiance derived from its location in a suite of historic buildings in Georgetown’s Book Hill neighborhood, and attractive, comfortable interior spaces that balance traditional and contemporary design;
• Exceptional, creative food and beverage services that “set the standard” for private club dining and entertaining in Washington.
