About the Club
The Charlotte City Club provides a special place for social and business activities and the best in fine and casual dining in a tastefully elegant setting. A formal spiral staircase to the Club's upper level and fine furnishings in a traditional Southern style create an atmosphere of refined sophistication. The Club's location on the top two floors of the 121 West Trade building gives Members and guests an unparalleled view of Charlotte and the surrounding areas. It also offers convenient parking in the building's garage.
During the week breakfast is available in the Grill Room. At lunch members may choose between a la carte lunch served in the Mecklenburg Room or the buffet in the Grill. In the evening members may enjoy formal dining in one of the Club’s dining rooms or opt for the Grill which offers a casual menu. Dinner is served Wednesday through Saturday.
The Club is always available to Members for private parties. There are suitable accommodations for every type of event, from quiet luncheon meetings and small intimate dinners to large formal private parties and receptions. Six exquisitely furnished private dining rooms on the upper level can serve parties of 10 to 150 guests. In addition, the dramatic two story Queen Charlotte Ballroom and Mecklenburg Room on the lower level can be reserved for larger receptions, meetings or parties. Also on the lower level the beautifully appointed Stonewall Jackson Room which is surrounded by pine paneled member wine lockers is available for parties up to forty.
