Members can enjoy two lively bars, and casual and fine dining in our restaurants. Conference facilities are available for fully catered business meetings, seminars, social occasions, and special events. Members have access to a network of 200+ domestic and overseas reciprocal clubs, which offer unique personal experiences and very useful base to work from.
Club Status Our Club remains closed, with management constantly reviewing the experience of all the other private clubs in NYC. In the interim, an arrangement has been made for our members to use the Cornell Club, which is just a block away at 6 E 44th, and the Penn Club. A reminder that our Members enjoy reciprocal benefits with the Manhattan-based National Arts Club as well as with two clubs just outside the City: The Scarsdale Country Club (Westchester, NY) and the Nassau County Country Club (Long Island, NY). In all these cases, Members must request a Letter of Introduction via this online form. The LOI will be generated instantly so you should have rather immediate access to these fine facilities. The Harmonie Club is providing limited access for our Members to their Club’s squash courts. Details via this link.
What do we all want in life? Health, happiness, love, and satisfaction. Join us for a program that will introduce Club Members to a life-changing technique, Vipassana meditation. Meditation teaches self-awareness, leading to understanding which in turn leads to compassion for others. This particular form of meditation, Vipassana meditation, is a 2,600 year old technique that teaches one to observe things as they really are. In other words, it is a science of mind and matter.
The program will begin with an introductory talk by the late S.N. Goenka of India. Then Mr. Goenka’s student, Barry Lapping, will discuss the technique of Vipassana meditation in greater detail and its importance in these troubled times in a fireside chat format with Williams Club Board Member, Charles Mitchell ‘74
