Welcome to The Club

In 1976, Cape Town's two oldest clubs, the City Club (founded 1878) and the Civil Service Club (founded 1858), merged to form The Cape Town Club, which is now a member of a reciprocal network of over 100 exclusive clubs worldwide.

The current club house, on Queen Victoria Street, was designed by Sir Herbert Baker in 1898 and is located alongside the Company's Garden and next door to the Cape Town High Court. 

Originally the exclusive domain of businessmen, politicians, advocates and other professionals, the Club has moved with the times and now boasts a growing membership of young men and women who wish to take advantage of the networking opportunities and impressive function facilities.

The Club restaurant, 'QVS18', is open daily for breakfast and lunch, and dinner by reservation, where  the chef will tempt your tastebuds with his outstanding flavour combinations. The enclosed balcony, with its enormous windows and original wooden flooring, overlooks a bustling Queen Victoria Street and offers panoramic views of Table Mountain. Available for private functions, the dinning room can also be transformed into a conference room, live music or wedding reception venue.

The Members' Bar, where the clock is always set to 5.15pm, features original wood paneled walls, leather armchairs and chesterfield couches. The bar offers craft beer on tap, over 100 single malts and a wide selection of locally sourced spirits and wine.
