Visit this legendary private National Arts Club, located in the historic Samuel Tilden Mansion, to explore the front parlors, furnished with intricately carved fireplaces, woodwork, period furniture, and pieces from the permanent collection; the billiards room; and one of New York City’s most stunning bars, featuring a dazzling 19th century stained glass cupola by Donald MacDonald. No pets or children are allowed on the premises.
