When & Where
233 S. Wacker Dr
Located on the 66th and 67th floors of the Willis Tower, The Metropolitan Club of Chicago encourages professional and social networking through a variety of special events and Club Committees.
In 1974, Mr. Arthur M. Wood, former Sears Roebuck & Co Board Chairman, championed not only the development of the Sears Tower but also the establishment of the tower’s Metropolitan Club. Since that time, the West Loop has flourished, and The Metropolitan Club has become known as the place to conduct business and meet Chicago’s “who’s who,” and has developed a reputation as Chicago’s finest business club. Understanding that the executives of today are vastly different from decades past, the Club provides our Members with the atmosphere, amenities and personalized service they seek. We encourage you to join in the celebration. Visit The Metropolitan Club and discover an extraordinary Member experience.
