Constructed in 1796 near the intersection of today’s Wisconsin Ave. & M St., the City Tavern served as the principal tavern in Georgetown as the new federal city of Washington was being built. A welcome dinner was held at the City Tavern for President John Adams when the nation’s capital moved from Philadelphia to Washington in 1800.

In 1959, the building was restored to its original Federal grandeur and new event spaces were added. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the City Tavern Club exists to preserve this last Federal- era tavern in Washington.

The City Tavern Club is an oasis in the heart of Georgetown. We welcome as members all those who wish to enjoy the setting of an elegant, historic building and diverse social club, and who contribute to our many interests in educational and intellectual pursuits, history, culture and the arts, and fellowship and camaraderie among friends.
