Presidents Room

This room is aptly named for the portraits of the Club’s first six presidents that adorn the walls. This room is also the site of the first electricity in the city of Utica. You can frequently find regulars of the Club pausing in their day to read the newspaper in this room, or during events this space is a favorite to set up a bar and for mingling. If you need to do an impromptu, casual meeting before or after lunch, this gives you a great space to do that, too.
