City Club of Wilmington expands downtown footprint.
Acquisition of nearby historic building/event space will enhance offerings  
Wilmington, NC: City Club Partners acquire downtown event center St. Thomas Preservation Hall at 208 Dock St. for an undisclosed figure. Jonathan Weiss and David Topping made their 2nd purchase in Historic Downtown Wilmington on Aug. 29th through their holding company TopWeiss, LLC (which also owns the deRosset House at 23 S. 2nd St., home to The City Club of Wilmington).
City Club’s new general manager Poppy Tugwell will continue to run St. Thomas as one of Historic Downtown’s premier event and wedding venues.  “I am excited to be a part of the City Club and even more so with the addition of Saint Thomas Preservation Hall. We will continue to offer the same superior service to our City Club Members as well as our new Saint Thomas event clients”, Tugwell said.  Those interested in booking weddings or events should contact Poppy at 910.343.1880 ext 210 or Photo gallery of St. Thomas –
Weiss and Topping are also partnered in several successful multi-family apartment complexes together.  With their history of “hands on” supervision combined with the vast experience of The City Club staff, brides and event clients have reason to be excited about this addition.  “David and I are thrilled about the latest addition to our portfolio. The City Club and St. Thomas were both built in the 1840’s and we were in dire need of a large event venue…it seemed like a perfect fit. With the recent addition of many more hotel rooms and the fact that there is no need for out of town guests to rent a car, Historic Downtown Wilmington has become the perfect location to host a wedding,” Weiss said. 
About City Club of Wilmington: City Club is a private dining/social club and wedding/event venue located inside the de Rosset mansion in the heart of  historic downtown Wilmington.  The property also includes lush, tiered gardens and 6 luxurious suites to accommodate overnight guests.  Find out more at
