James Douthat - City Clubs of Washington - Washington - DC
Role:General Manager
Serving Since:2011

I have served as the General Manager of the City Club of Washington since August 2011.  Before joining ClubCorp and The City Club of Washington, I had the pleasure of operating several of the nation’s largest restaurants and night clubs, including McCormick and Schmick’s in Washington, D.C., Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Baltimore, Md., Abe & Louie’s Steakhouse in Boston, Humperdink’s Chophouse in Dallas, Rogue’s Gallery in Virginia Beach, Va. and Ultra Bar in Las Vegas.
Born in Portsmouth Naval Hospital and raised in Norfolk, Va., I graduated from Old Dominion University, and have worked in the food and beverage industry for most of my adult life.  Although not a native Washingtonian, I believe I have found my true home here in the District.
Food and wine are my passion.  Some people eat to live; I however, live to eat. I also have a particular interest in beaches, golf courses and great restaurants.  If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
