The Terminal City Club started out as the Metropolitan Club in 1892. It was men’s only for many years. As Jesse Donaldson writes in Montecristo magazine:
While the Terminal City Club has always been exclusive, its early years were even more so—in a negative sense of the word. For much of the 20th century, the club, like all of Vancouver’s private-members’ establishments, was a men-only affair. Female guests were forbidden from entering certain areas, and even had their own entrance. In fact, until 1950, men and women couldn’t even have a drink together outside of a place known as the “strangers’ room”
Today things are considerably more female friendly. Of 2,000 members the Terminal City Club boasts a membership that is one third women. It remains a playground for the affluent with many activities and distractions.
