Private Clubs Offer Grand Ballrooms, Good Food, and Low Rates for Receptions and You Don’t Need to Be a Member.
The club’s 1850 brick townhouse is at once comfortable and refined, decorated with antiques and rich fabrics. A front parlor serves well for cocktails; three dining-and-dancing rooms and a patio lie beyond.
Rooms include a fireplace, paneling, and a vague nautical theme; you may add your own decorations.
