City Club of Wilmington


Set above lush, terraced gardens and a grand brick stairway- the prestigious City Club of Wilmington looks out over her river community. An antebellum porch invites passersby to a home where classic Southern style meets modern social sophistication. The landmark – built in 1841 – continues to open its doors to patrons, celebrities, bridal parties, business leaders, and all who gravitate towards her charm.

Inside the residence, heart-of-pine and Greek-revival craftsmanship meld with modern-day amenities. Whether sipping on a gin and tonic at the bar, indulging in refined cuisine at our restaurant, or settling in a rocking chair on the front porch, City Club guests know they’ve crossed the threshold into a new level of luxury.

During its more than 150-year span, the Club has served as the Port City’s hub for entertainment and networking. Newcomers and long-time residents alike continue to develop meaningful relationships within the home’s historic walls. The mansion’s sprawling layout not only includes multiple areas of social space, but also houses six lavish suites available to members and guests.

The Value of Connecting
Evoking the comforts of home, the City Club serves as Wilmington’s premier locale to conduct business or to simply escape the day’s monotony. Nostalgia resonates throughout the mansion – from classic tiered moldings to the subtle scent of hardwoods.

Unique setting aside, the home draws members with its affordability, as well. A competitive fee structure allows many to enjoy the perks of hosting corporate luncheons, one-on-one business meetings, private parties and much more.

The Club also offers lunch services Wednesday through Friday, dinner services Wednesday through Saturday and Sunday brunch – providing the perfect culinary getaway for any occasion.

Business Professionals are invited to join us the 1st Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm for City Club Connections networking social.  Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar are provided.  Take a sneak peak here –
