The Sangamo Club
On a recent trip to Springfield, Illinois, my husband and I took advantage of the Woman’s Club reciprocity with the Sangamo Club and enjoyed an exceptionally fine Friday night dinner there. Located on Adams Street in Springfield’s historic downtown just blocks from the State Capitol, this 125-year-old private club is the
area’s premiere private dining city club for business, government, and community leaders. We chose to eat in the Main Dining Room which offered the type of white tablecloth service we are so fond of at the Woman’s Club. Other dining options include a casual-service Grill Room where daily lunch is also served and – in good weather – outdoor patio dining. Nightly specials, seasonal specialties, and Farmer’s Market fare are features of the menu. There is also full-bar service. We felt that we dined better here than we could have at any of Springfield’s downtown
restaurants. Reciprocity with other private clubs in the US and overseas is a privilege we enjoy as WCW members. Reciprocal clubs are listed in your membership directory
The Standard Club
A dear friend and I decided to spend a night in Chicago this past August, but found that due to the Lollapalooza festival (similar to Summerfest, but on steroids) the hotels in the downtown area were either full or selling at exorbitant rates. Remembering that the Woman's Club has reciprocal clubs in Chicago, I set out to find rooms for us. The Standard Club had two rooms available at a rate about half of the going rate, and the location was perfect for our Chicago plans. We were pleasantly surprised at the gracious welcome of the staff, the large sleeping rooms and bathrooms, and the general ambiance of the club in general. Everything was spotless, with old world charm. From now on I will BEGIN my search for a place to stay in cities I visit with our list of reciprocal clubs.

Salt Lake City, Utah
If you happen to visit Utah, the Beehive State, check out the Alta Club located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. My husband and I had the pleasure of dining and staying at this architectural gem. You are in for a treat as you step back into the history of this Arts and Crafts building, complete with all the original stained glass and woodwork. Enjoy an enchanted evening with a fireside dinner, retreat to your deluxe suite, or take a stroll to a nearby theater or museum. Reciprocal clubs are an added bonus as a Woman’s Club member. We boast over 70 reciprocal clubs located both nationally and internationally. Share in the legacy of other clubs as you travel. Do you have friends visiting from out of state who are members of reciprocal clubs? Perhaps they would enjoy lunch or dinner at our glorious Club. Spread the news. We are truly buzzworthy!
