Club Rooms > Member's Lounge
The first floor Member’s Lounge is furnished with oriental rugs and groupings of reupholstered couches and wingback chairs. Old photos of football teams, collegiate artifacts and expansive photographic murals of the founding universities fill the room. A dark library table covered almost completely with engravings of fraternities, nicknames and initials, holds the major daily newspapers. Wrapped around the sides of the modest sized bartop is a translated Latin toast from 1693: “There are five reasons why men drink – good wine, a friend, because I’m dry or lest I should be by-and-by, or any other reason why.” Another Latin phrase referring to Bacchus adorns the circular backbar fashioned like the side of a wine barrel.
