About The Downtown Club

The Downtown Club has long served as the gathering point for the community's leaders and decision makers. Formed in 1963, The Downtown Club was originally located on the top floor of the T.W. Patterson Building, before moving to the renovated Fresno Republican Printery Building in 1982. Once strictly a members-only club, the Downtown Club is now open to the public for private catered events.

The club has reopened under the guidance of a new management and supported by a group of local investors, and the once-exclusive members only restaurant is now open for non-members. Inside The Downtown Club still retains part of its identity as a printing press, with the machine to undergo operation soon. As a former men’s club, the establishment still retained some of its traditional menu items of meat dishes that are seasoned deliciously and cooked perfectly. Salads, fish, and pasta dishes are also served on the menu, and everyone who wishes to dine here will not run out of choices.

The Downtown Club still maintains its quiet and dignified air. The room is spacious for enough room to mix and mingle with other guests, and businessmen will certainly appreciate the relaxed atmosphere to brainstorm and exchange pleasantries, as well as business tips and decisions.

One of the refreshing changes that Nick Farid – one of the local investors who revived The Downtown Club – has made is that food items on the menu have been lowered to between $11 and $14. The grilled chicken fatoush salad has become a new item on the menu that is a must try; there’s also a salmon BLT, as well as a Mediterranean veggie plate.

Exclusive membership is still open. Members will get to enjoy discounted meals in the restaurant as well as free use of a conference hall for business meetings or personal events. Members will also enjoy:

  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free Valet
  • 10% discount in house dining

  • Free Banquets Venue
