Administrative / Biographical History

The City Business Club was founded in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1912  to promote the business and social interests of its members, who held 'executive' posts. The club held weekly luncheons with distinguished speakers and organised other social events. The first meeting of the club was held at the Grosvenor Restaurant, opposite Central Station, Glasgow, but throughout its history it met in many other venues in Glasgow, including the Windsor Hotel, Western Club and Arcade Caf. The Club was incorporated as the City Business Club, Glasgow, Ltd in 1927  and in 1964  it went into voluntary liquidation.
