New York Athletic Club and Algonquin Club Boston review by Member Dr. David Ashton



What was the reason for your visit to New York Athletic Club/the Algonquin Club in Boston?

My wife Christine and I were visiting New York and Boston on holidays.

Can you give us a small background/blurb about the Clubs you visited?

The New York Athletic Club was founded in 1868 in order to bring structure and support to amateur sport. It consists of a 24-floor facility includes two restaurants, a cocktail lounge, library, ballroom, billiard room, meeting rooms, wellness centre, and eight floors of guest rooms for members and Club guests. The athletic training floors include a swimming pool, basketball courts, and boxing rings, fencing and wrestling room, judo floor, and squash courts. It provides wonderful facilities for its members at two locations – the Manhattan City House and Travers Island in Westchester. On the other hand, the Algonquin club was formed as a social club in 1885. It is a six-floor Indiana Limestone building designed in the Italian Renaissance Palazzo style for the specific purpose of a private social clubhouse and not as a residence, unlike other clubs in Boston whose premises began as private residences. It was designed by the leading architects of the day, McKim, Mead & White of New York, designers of the Boston Public Library and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as well as other notable buildings in other cities.

Why did you choose this particular Club?

In both cases, the clubs were situated in very convenient and desirable locations, with the NYAC overlooking Central Park, and the Algonquin Club situated in Commonwealth Avenue and a short walk to vibrant Newbury Street.

What was the highlight of your stay, in terms of service, dining and your room?

At the NYAC, the highlight would have to be a window table at breakfast in the beautiful dining room overlooking Central Park. The service at the Club was always very attentive and everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. The cocktail bar was open until quite late and it was a great place for a ‘brightener’ after a long day of sightseeing or a nightcap after night on Broadway. Other guests were very sociable and keen to discuss the show or restaurant they had just come from! The casual dining room was popular and busy. At the Algonquin club the guest suite accommodation was spacious and included a very comfortable sitting room with fireplace overlooking beautiful tree lined Commonwealth Avenue. The service was excellent and we were made to feel very at home and welcome. The oysters offered in the casual dining area were particularly good.

What facilities were made available to you and did you make good use of them?

At both clubs, all facilities were made available to us. The NYAC had a swimming pool and gym for guests to use and very good dining facilities. The Algonquin Club had gym equipment also good casual and formal dining and a bar. However, mostly we dined out preferring to sample the restaurants that both cities had on offer rather than dine in house and we got enough exercise exploring these beautiful cities.

What appealed to you most?

The Algonquin Club has been beautifully maintained. It had a sweeping four-floor central staircase, and ceiling heights ranging from 12 to 25 feet combine to create a sense of spaciousness and reflecting the era in which the clubhouse was constructed. Particularly appealing was the ornate and extensive wood millwork and panelling throughout the clubhouse. The Reading Room, which is touted as one of the finest drawing rooms not only in Boston but anywhere, spans the entire 80-foot interior width of the building and features the original ornate molded plaster ceiling, as well as imposing fireplaces at each end and ten-foot windows. It seemed to be well used by locals who lived nearby in beautiful brownstone houses. In contrast, the bustle and conviviality of the NYAC was very appealing and its location was just so convenient.

Membership at a Private Business Club Has Many Benefits



Membership at a private business club is prestigious and looks great on your LinkedIn profile. However, membership at the Brisbane Club has many more benefits and creates opportunities for its Members beyond a great place to hang out.

Networking Opportunities


Perhaps the best opportunity and the motivation behind many Members joining the Brisbane Club are the networking opportunities. Networking is a crucial part of success in the business world, interacting and engaging with like-minded people who are looking for mutually beneficial relationships, can be the key to growing a successful business. After all it’s not what you know, it’s often who you know and private business clubs are renowned for being home to the ‘movers and shakers’ of the business world.

The Brisbane Club is home to many of Brisbane and Queensland’s business elite, yet also has overseas and inter-state members, giving you the ability to vastly expand your network and create relationships with business people outside of your immediate circle. Members find the relationships they form with fellow experts and other professionals, often result in contacts that last a lifetime. Networking can accelerate and sustain your business growth and development. The relationships forged within a business club not only can last a life time, but can reap benefits in every aspect of life, not just business and careers.

The Brisbane Club provides the best environment to develop and foster these new and long term relationships.

Dining Priviledges


The Members-Only dining room is open for lunch and dinner five days a week and provides the opportunity to dine with peers in a sophisticated environment tasting world class cuisine. If you’re looking for a more secluded environment there are many lovely private dining rooms available for exclusive meetings and functions. Members receive a discounted rate when using the function spaces available and experience a top class service to go with it.

Special Interest Groups


Another benefit to membership at a private business club such as the Brisbane Club are the special interest groups. Not only do they provide members with a luxurious environment to enjoy their interests with like-minded people, they also give the opportunity for members to expand their network in a more casual environment.

Affiliations With Interstate and Overseas Clubs


Private business clubs normally have reciprocal affiliations with interstate and overseas clubs. The Brisbane Club has affiliations with many private clubs throughout Australia and the world. Many of these clubs have accommodation available, all of them have dining facilities and can offer Members a little home away from home, which can make business trips far more enjoyable.

Access to The Cellar


Another benefit unique to the Brisbane Club is the world class cellar. Open five days a week, the Members-only cellar is the perfect place to source all your wine. Not only can you purchase wine from the cellar, the cellar team can also prepare wine for any event a Member is holding, whether it’s a family dinner, a corporate event, or even a fishing trip. Cellar staff can give advice on designing home cellars, and food and wine matching. The cellar also has a beautiful dining room which is a unique place to host an event or special dinner and is admired by everyone who visits it.

There are many different benefits to having a membership at a private business club. The Brisbane Club is the best club in Queensland where members form beneficial networks whilst enjoying an oasis of comfort in todays’ hectic business world.

Premier Business Club’s Members-Only Wine Cellar is One of the Best in the Southern Hemisphere



Hailed as one of the best in the Southern hemisphere, there’s something to tantalise every palate. The wine cellar has forged close relationships with the premier winemakers and suppliers in the industry. These close relationships give the cellar access to back dated, vintage and limited release wines. The cellar won best club wine list for three years in a row and in 2013 was inducted into the Wine List Hall of Fame.

Run by the resident wine experts, Cellar Manager Giovanni and Senior Cellar Assistant Patrick, they are on hand five days a week to answer any questions you might have and offer their expertise. The ‘personal wine concierges’ pride themselves on the distinct service they provide to Members, which extends from tailoring wines to match the menu in the dining rooms and functions, education for any Members who are interested in learning more about wine, ordering in specific wines for Members, to popping up to the dining room to help Members choose which wine will suit their dinner or their personal preferences.

Here are some other benefits to having access to one of the best wine cellars in the Southern hemisphere.

  1. Are you hosting a special dinner and want to know what wines will best suit the meal you are preparing? Giovanni and Patrick can help you pick the perfect wine to match your meal and turn the dinner into a gourmet affair.

  2. Christmas is rapidly approaching and so is the job of picking end of year presents for clients and staff. The cellar can take all the hassle out of this job. They can organise special exclusive bottles of wine and turn that end of year gift into something unique that won’t be forgotten.

  3. Another perk of the cellar is the delivery service they offer. Perhaps a Brisbane Club Member is hosting a dinner and they realise they haven’t organised any wine. The cellar can organise exactly what that Member needs and have it delivered to them. They can offer that day delivery, if the order is received by 10:00 am.

  4. The cellar is also available as a function space. Dining in the cellar is a truly singular experience, the dark mahogany walls lined with stocked shelves and the long elegant table creates a beautiful ambience that your guests will love. The privacy of the cellar makes it the perfect place for a corporate dinner or a special family dinner and the ability to browse the cellar’s extensive shelves will be an experience they won’t forget. The cellar is one of the most popular function spaces in the Brisbane Club, loved by Members and guests alike.

  5. Having one of the best wine cellars in the southern hemisphere means access to explore these wines and the ability to expand your palate. During its 113 years in operation the Brisbane Club’s cellar has had the opportunity to develop very close relationships with the best winemakers. Using these close relationships, the cellar hosts at least two different tasting events every month. These tastings showcase a particular wine label, with a winemaker from the label present to educate members on the wines and answer any questions they may have. The wines are enjoyed with a perfectly matched four or five course dinner prepared by the Brisbane Club’s excellent kitchen team.

  6. Another fabulous perk of the cellar is the deal available to Brisbane Club Members on Fridays. Every Friday Members can go down to the cellar and buy wines at takeaway prices and then take them back into the dining room so they can enjoy them with their guests. This is the perfect opportunity to sample some of the exclusive and unique wines the cellar holds and a great way to share this experience with guests.


Membership at the Brisbane Club has many advantages. Access to one of the premier wine cellars in the Southern hemisphere which has relationships with the best winemakers in the industry is perhaps the best advantage of all.

The Complete Guide to Ensuring Your Corporate Function Stands Out

Whether it’s a celebration lunch for your most significant clients, hosting a team building workshop for your employees, or the chance to promote a new product or service for your organisation, inviting guests to a corporate function is a great opportunity to build buzz around your business. That said, organising and holding a successful corporate event doesn’t just happen – it takes planning. To ease your event planning burden, we have created a guide to ensure you host a stand out corporate function.

Selecting The Venue


When hosting a successful corporate function, it’s important to keep in mind the type of space you require. If you’re planning on holding a corporate lunch for your clients, you will need a venue which offers a private dining experience for you and your guests. Additionally, consider the number of people you will be inviting and ensure your chosen venue can accommodate them all, and guarantee the space has the capacity to seat your guests comfortably. If you want your function to stand out to your guests, ensure you choose a unique venue,  such as the Brisbane Club. With a range of uniquely designed, elegant function rooms and the capacity to suit any number of guests, the Brisbane Club can set your Corporate Function apart.

Finding The Perfect Location


Choosing the best location for your function is an essential part of the planning process, and ensures maximum attendance of your invitees. The venue should be in a central location, near transport and parking, ensuring it’s easy for your guests to access.. The Brisbane Club provides a convenient location for your guests, and there will be no concerns about them not being able to find their way to the venue. Additionally, there is plenty of transport in and out of the city, including buses and trains for those not wanting to drive in and pay expensive parking. With it’s sleek metropolitan backdrop, The Brisbane Club in the centre of the city is the best place to hold a standout corporate function.

Catering For Your Guests


When organising your corporate function, you should always consider the catering your event requires. The food and service must be excellent. Most venues offer food and drink packages when you book, so it’s essential you consider this when choosing where to hold your function, as you could end up in the perfect space but with food and service that is not ideal for your target market. Choosing a venue such as the Brisbane Club, who are renowned for their outstanding menus, delicious food and unrivalled service, ensures that your function is of the highest quality, leaving a great impression with your guests.

Capturing The Right Atmosphere


When aiming to host a stand out corporate function, it’s imperative you cultivate the right atmosphere for your guests. The atmosphere is a tricky thing to get right, and doesn’t spontaneously happen just by putting your guests in a room together and leaving them to get on with it. A great atmosphere provides your guests with the perfect environment to relax, interact with one another and enjoy your function. Finding the optimal setting for hosting your event ensures that your corporate function is a stand out with your guests, leaving them with a long lasting impression of your company. The prestigious history of the Brisbane Club and the unique, warm, friendly environment combines to create the perfect ambience for your next memorable corporate function.
