Boiler Room

Adjacent to the Card Room, this members-only Speakeasy is appropriately named the Boiler Room as the 1942 boiler holds center stage. This will be a warm—pun intended—place for you to unwind after a day at the office or share something special from your private locker with clients, colleagues or friends and family. Coming online in Fall 2024, reach out if interested in getting on the waitlist.
