City University Club
The City University Club (CUC) is a lunch club in the heart of the financial area of London. It is the ideal place for lunch or simply a drink at the bar. The Club offers a first class meal in discreet circumstances for a modest price.
The (CUC) is in the old Prescott’s Bank Building where it was originally established in 1895 by Oxbridge graduates who wanted a lunch club in the City. The link with the universities remains, but membership is now much wider, embracing both sexes and many professions.
Members joining the Club find the atmosphere equally conducive to lunching with friends or on their own at the club tables. The food is first-class; the wine-list comprehensive and the service excellent. The Club is open for lunch Monday to Friday throughout the year, closing only between Christmas and the New Year.
The Club enjoys reciprocity with over 450 of the finest clubs throughout the world including many in London and other parts of the country.
Smoking Room and Bar
The bar is integrated within the old Smoking Room to create a large, comfortable space where members can meet for a drink or sit and read the latest magazines and newspapers. The Club is open from 12 noon to 4.00 pm daily but is readily made available out of those hours to members who might wish to hold meetings or just relax in front of the open fires in the winter – or wide open windows in the summer.
It can also accommodate up to 110 people in comfort for a reception and 60 for a seated conference, seminar or meeting in the evening and at a weekend. Equally the layout of the room lends itself well to private drinks parties.
