This building in Brooklyn’s historic district of Park Slope serves the show as Lolly Steinman’s casino. The private club, built by architect Francis H. Kimball, is an example of a New York City structure inspired by European architecture. It is based on a palace on Venice’s Grand Canal. At its opening, the Montauk Club enjoyed a wide membership and notable figures like Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy have made speeches at the club.

In the 20th century, the top floors were sold as condominiums but the core of the club remains with a plethora of historic details. Anyone is welcome to join the club, which charges fees starting at $250 a year.
