2. National Arts Club Dining Room

National Arts Club

Offering educational programs and shows, the National Arts Club was founded by The New York Times art and literary critic, Charles Dekay, in 1898. Since 1906, however, the private club on Gramercy Park has been housed inside the Samuel J. Tilden House, a landmarked Victorian Gothic Revival brownstone (15 Gramercy Park), which was designated a New York City landmark in 1966 and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.

In addition to the various programs, the National Arts Club has a dining room and bar that offers lunch and dinner. However, it’s only open to members, guests of members, or members of sister clubs (like the Salmagundi Club), and there is a dress code to enter.
