The Metropolitan Club is one of Washington's oldest and most valued private institutions. Since its founding in 1863, it has vigorously pursued its primary objectives of "literary, mutual improvement and social purposes." Its proximity to the White House and other seats of American power has mad it among the world's most fascinating waypoints for local, national and international leaders, including almost every U.S. President since Abraham Lincoln. The Club's unique location and dedication to the traditions of social civility provide its members with a convenient haven from the bustle of Washington business while offering the amenities of contemporary urban living.
