About The Club

The Cornell Club is the ideal setting for connecting with alumni, rekindling old friendships, and meeting new people.

The benefits of belonging to The Club are both varied and personal. Members find great value in Club membership for:

  • A familiar place for a drink or a bite in midtown.
  • A home away from home when traveling.
  • A place for doing business, networking, and entertaining.
  • A Health & Fitness Center to use on a commute to/from work in midtown.
  • A "club away from Club" experience through the reciprocal network.

What our Members are saying about their favorite perks at The Club:

  • "Having the opportunity to store my personal items at The Club’s front desk during trips to NYC! Not having to carry around my laptop while shopping and tooling around the city is ideal." 
  • "I like to entertain in a classic collegiate environment and the drink specials and complimentary hors d’oeuvres during happy hour are a real treat."
  • "After a commute into the city, I know I’ll be ready for my day with a visit to the Health & Fitness Center. Whether I’m getting in a workout, or just grabbing a quick shower and changing into my suit, I feel great!"
  • "I love having use of the reciprocal clubs. I interviewed in three cities right after college and it was a huge plus to know I could secure an overnight room and prep for my interviews in a private club setting. And, it impressed my future boss when I told her I would be staying in one of her cities most exclusive clubs!"
