Our Story

The City Club of Washington embodies the vibrant, energetic spirit of our Capital city, serving as a conduit for diverse, dynamic and forward-looking Members to connect and collaborate for the betterment of our communities.

Inspired by Our Heritage

In 1987, The City Club of Washington was founded as a private yet inclusive environment that would bring together prominent business and social leaders of Washington, D.C., for constructive conversation and shared experiences. Situated within walking distance of the White House, National Monuments and the Pennsylvania Avenue Corridor, The City Club is rooted with a strong foundation built on rich tradition.

Dedicated to the Future

As we look to the future, we aim to further the development of our communities by continuing our tradition of upholding a diverse, inclusive and productive environment where the leaders of our city can conduct business and reach across the aisle
