Visiting the Metropolitan Club

"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."

—Robert Louis Stevenson, Travels with a Donkey in the Cevennes

Welcome to the Metropolitan Club—the perfect place for relaxation, recreation, and entertainment—your home away from home. Set in the heart of San Francisco, just steps from Union Square, the Metropolitan Club is a private women's social club that has been entertaining Members and guests since 1917 when the doors first opened. This same hospitality continues today as the Club shares its dining, overnight guest rooms, fitness facilities, and spa and salon with nearly 100 Reciprocal Clubs from around the world.

  • Dining
    • Not only is eating an art, it is an organic adventure when dining at the Metropolitan Club.

      Whether stopping in for a quick bite at the French inspired Café Met, taking a break for Afternoon Tea & Cookies, sharing drinks and Small Plates in the Main Bar, or dining beneath the ornate art deco ceiling of the Main Dining Room, the Club's Executive Chef takes the dining experience one step further by creating dishes inspired by local cuisine and infusing them with cultures and cooking traditions from around the globe. Because of the Club's access to the freshest produce, meats, poultry, seafood, and other delicacies, Members and guests celebrate the food and wines of many cultures and regions of the world.
