A FOUNDATION OF TRADITION
Jonathan Club is a private social club with a rich and progressive history. Founded in 1895, the Club's diverse member base enjoys fine dining, athletics and wellness facilities, spa services, social events and award shows. A perfected balance of historical and modern aesthetics make the Town Club and the Beach Club homes for meeting friends, celebrating with family and enjoying a variety of activities.
passion for the extraordinary
Set aside the history and elegance. Set aside the fine dining and accommodations. Set aside the modern spa and fitness. What is left? A nexus of Jonathan Club membership—where bonds of camaraderie and community are forged while having the time of your life. At Jonathan Club events members dress up, dress down or dress to play at a variety of special occasions catered just for them. At their disposal the Club provides a range of opportunities to participate, learn, volunteer and spend time with loved ones.
Passion for Quality
For a night out on the town, family fun and dining, a formal business meeting or just an everyday casual bite, Jonathan Club offers its members and their guests a variety of menus and settings to suit the occasion. Dining choices are inspired by the locally grown and sourced ingredients prepared for the most discerning palate.
Our commitment to ingredients and sustainable food reflects in our operations with a rooftop urban garden in our very own backyard and the many partnerships with California growers. Our comprehensive wine list offers an array of selections to complement the lush flavors of California cuisine. Jonathan Club’s impeccable menus, service and staff elevate the singular dining experience.
Our vital and award winning JC wine program is in a constant state of evolution and expansion as our sommeliers seek out new and exciting ways for members to share in the pleasures of wine. JC features more than 20 wine focused dinners, seminars, and events annually, and maintains over 1000 wine selections at the Town and over 200 at the Beach. Our beverage team is always delighted to help find the perfect wine for you and your guests.
JC’s cocktail program is rooted in the celebratory, pre-prohibition era heritage of the club itself. Drawing inspiration from classic cocktail recipes that have fueled the fun at JC for over 120 years, our mixologist takes tradition one step further. Incorporating fresh seasonal herbs and produce from the JC garden, house-made syrups and infusions, and the finest small-batch spirits, bitters, and liqueurs, each complex and balanced JC cocktail is a story in a glass.
Spirits & Beers
JC back bar is home to over 450 ultra-premium liquor brands including hundreds of rare, small-production, artisan spirits and liqueurs. Appreciation of fine spirits is furthered in our fascinating and fun “Barkeeper’s Intensive” seminar series. JC’s diverse and eclectic spirits program focuses on quality, intensity, and style, often featuring spirits from small, local distilleries. Local craft beers, sours, ciders, and ales also share the spotlight, especially in JC dining rooms, where their natural affinity with food is highlighted.
Luxury at its finest
Jonathan Club offers for its members and their guests the finest hospitality suites designed for business and leisure right in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Luxurious accommodations that feature gossamer Italian linens, downy Turkish towels and signature bath amenities allow for first-class relaxation. Stay at a JC Suite, de-stress in the au courant spa or the gym and enjoy a recherché sojourn. Each suite can be customized to the individual taste and preference through our guest recognition program.
A Pinnacle of Wellness
Jonathan Club recognizes the importance of the holistic approach: fitness, nutrition, athletics and rejuvenation. A range of programs create the ideal environment for its members to practice yoga, satisfy curiosity about Pilates Reformer, and just feel the burn with innovative group exercise classes and personal training sessions. Year-round sports activities—aquatics, basketball, paddle tennis, squash and volleyball—give the healthy competitive spirit room to play. A potpourri of indulgent spa services makes for the perfect “excuse” to pamper oneself, and one-on-one nutrition guidance completes the package. Jonathan Club’s newly renovated spa, fitness and athletic facilities, customized focus on healthy eating and the provision of individual guidance and support make yesterday’s resolution today’s reality.
IT'S MORE THAN A MEMBERSHIP
Jonathan Club remains one of the most prominent private clubs within the country. Two landmark properties, one in the center of downtown Los Angeles and the other on the seashore of Santa Monica offer a variety of social, family and community related activities with unparalleled service and amenities. The innovative cuisine will tantalize the taste buds of any epicurean. The newly renovated state-of-the-art spa and sporting and fitness facilities will rejuvenate the body and spirit. Membership at Jonathan Club is an opportunity to grow as a benefactor of the community, as a family and as an individual.
