Club Facilities

The Bar

The Bar is a cosy place to meet friends, have a light lunch or a drink, or just spend time relaxing.

Dining room meals are available in the Bar upon request, as well as a bar menu – see sample bar menu.

The Dining Room is open for lunch every Monday to Friday, from 11.45 am – 3.00pm (last orders 2.30 pm).

Please book ahead by calling Hasita on 020 7167 6682 or by emailing secretary@cityuniversityclub.co.uk.

If you arrive without having booked, we will do our best to accommodate you, but we cannot guarantee a table will be available.

Tables for 2, up to large groups, can be accommodated, and there is a Club Table for a good-value lunch – see sample dining-room menu.

See also the special meals advertised on our Events page.
