Club Life

Club life


A more comfortable way to relax

Now it’s time to unwind. Friends are waiting in the Leacock Lounge, where the mood is blessedly quieter. The sounds of the city faded behind French windows. The sommelier serves up a cocktail that is somehow just right for your mood. After sampling some homemade Clubhouse chips, head to the McCrae Library. Over a selection of tapas and on tap Montreal Brewery beer, play a quick game of pool before the Habs game starts on the big-screen TV.

You see an old friend settle in the club chairs and head over to chat. Chandra serves your favourite coffee as the last embers die in the fireplace. If you play your cards right, maybe he’ll order up a late night bottle of vintage wine from his private cellar housed at the Club and regale you with stories of older times and members gone but not forgotten.

Where education meets comfort

You just finished work and head over to join the cocktail. A nice glass of wine after a hectic day is a good way to start the evening. Canapés are served on silver platters as the guest of honour heads from group to group giving everyone a few minutes of his time. The lights are dimmed; the signal that it is time to head to the University room to be seated for the presentation portion of the evening. The waiter discretely fills your wine glass during the talk. Tonight, it is a lecture on the current situation in the Middle East. Last week, it was a chocolate tasting and you can’t wait for the upcoming talk on art in Venice. On the Club’s private website, you see who else is registered and now look forward to catching up with old friends after the presentation for an impromptu dinner.

The Members' Round Table

The Members’ Round Table in the centre of the Billard room is reserved for members who would like to have lunch at the Club without a guest while enjoying the good fellowship of other members. All members are encouraged to join this table. A glass of wine is offered by the Club.
 
The Members' Annual Dinner

A club in Canada which numbered among its members such outstanding figures of Canadian public life as Gen. Georges Vanier, Lieut.-Col. John McCrae, Stephen Leacock, Douglas C. Abbott, Brooke Claxton and Gen. A.G.L. McNaughton, can by that very roll call be said to represent a microcosm of the history of Canada.    

Each year since 1976 a distinguished member has been honoured at an annual dinner for personal achievements and service to the Club.
