The Center Club was established in 1962 at a time when prominent Baltimore business and social leaders were seeking an environment that would offer fine cuisine and attentive service in a setting of privacy and tradition, regardless of a person's race, religion, color or creed.
Unlike other clubs at this time, The Center Club was founded on a charter of non-discrimination as a most distinguished private club, which would fulfill Members' needs in one location, easily accessible to the political, legal and business communities.
Since the beginning, The Center Club has been the most prestigious location in Baltimore for Members to meet their colleagues and friends, dine in comfortable and subtle elegance and enjoy entertaining with others of like mind. Emphasis is placed upon those elements that constitute the essence of a fine private club.
In late 2009, The Center Club underwent a renovation of the 15th floor, the first significant upgrade to the Club in more than 20 years. The renovation gave the Club a fresh, contemporary and clean look with rich, crisp colors. Renovations included a new wood and marble trimmed Main Dining Room, construction of a luxurious Wine Room, member bar, lounge area and private dining rooms.
The Center Club is located on the 15th and 16th floors of 100 Light Street in the heart of downtown Baltimore. It offers renowned panoramic views of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Federal Hill and sports stadiums and is within walking distance of many of Baltimore's premier attractions.
