About

The 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 George Town Club has been a focal point for entertaining prominent Washingtonians, diplomats, socialites, and leaders in business, government, and academia. It offers a warm, elegant, private retreat to its members, with fine cuisine, gracious service, and a setting that fosters relaxed, personal enjoyment.
