A peek behind the curtain of Richmond’s private clubs and their dining halls
It’s all so cloak and dagger, still. While representatives of Richmond’s private clubs were extremely polite when asked about their organizations’ elaborate dining programs, they still wanted to keep an air of secrecy — a novelty in today’s share-all age.
It’s been said Richmond’s clubs began during Prohibition as a means for high society to privately imbibe, but some of these clubs are even older. Today, they’re holdovers of high-class dining, where the food is of excellent quality and the level of care taken is worth the membership fees alone. Of course, to enjoy a meal here, you’ll have to apply.
