The George Town Club is one of the most elegant in-town clubs in the United States, patterned after the finest clubs in London and Paris. The warm, home-like Club offers a retreat to its Members, with superb cuisine, privacy, and friendly gracious service in a setting that fosters relaxed personal enjoyment. The Club was formed 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 Club has been a focal point for entertaining prominent Washingtonians, diplomats, socialites and leaders in business, government and academia. We are pleased that the Club family reflects a true cross-section of the leaders of the American and world communities.
