The Montauk Club | NY
The Club was founded in 1889 and has remained a private club since its founding. The magnificent Club House was designed by the famed New York architect Francis H. Kimball, who was inspired by a palace on Venice’s Grand Canal. The Club House was completed in 1891 and its Venetian gothic architecture, carved mahogany woodwork and beautiful stained glass windows remain its signature features. Today, the Club is a vibrant part of its Park Slope, Brooklyn neighborhood. Members organize a variety of events year-round. Recently the Club has hosted talks by local authors, jazz performances, prohibition-era cocktail functions and Victorian-era salon parties. In addition, there are monthly book, beer and wine clubs that are popular with a cross-section of the membership.
