About Us

Leave the stress of your world, step into ours, and make it yours.

The Metropolitan Club, a private women's club, is located in the heart of San Francisco's Nob Hill district within walking distance of the renowned Union Square, the iconic cable cars, and the famed Dragon Gates of Chinatown.  

Founded in 1915, our full service club is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  

Just as the Club's initial intent, it is a wonderful place for Members and their guests to meet friends, attend a class or lecture, partake in the physical activities, host a special event, or stay the night.  

 Overnight guests have access to the Club's Library, Swimming Pool, Fitness Center, Tennis Court, M Spa • Salon, and fine dining.

  • Our Club Facilities
    • For nearly a century, the Club's six floors have been a gathering place for our Members and their guests.  Whether stopping in for the day to take in a lecture or dine in one of our two splendidly appointed dining rooms, slipping away from work to recharge with a workout in our state-of-the-art Fitness Center or swim in our indoor Swimming Pool, or simply enjoying a drink in our oak-paneled Main Bar followed by an overnight stay in one of our eighteen Guest Rooms, the Metropolitan Club is meant for you.
  • Our Special Events
    • The Metropolitan Club's elegantly appointed public rooms make the ideal setting for Members, their sponsored guests, and members of Reciprocal Clubs to host special events ranging from lectures and cocktail parties, meetings and dinners, private concerts and memorial services, to afternoon teas and weddings.
  • Our Dress Code & Club Policies
