Denver's Premier Private Athletic and Social City Club

Established in 1884, The Denver Athletic Club is Denver’s premier Member-owned, private club. Located in the heart of downtown The DAC is consistently ranked one of the top ten athletic clubs by Platinum Clubs of America. The DAC’s presence as an important hub has remained steady since its beginnings as Denver has grown from a small frontier town to one of the fastest growing metro areas in the United States.

     The Denver Athletic Club exists for the enrichment of and service to its Members and their
     families. A Club For Your Whole Life.

Just as in 1884, The DAC’s Members, who number over 2,000 today, engage in athletics, conduct business, gather socially and grow culturally at The Club. The first home of The DAC was in the basement of the First Baptist Church on 18th Street in 1884 was moved to its current Glenarm St. location in 1892. The facility today covers an entire city block next to the Denver Convention Center on 14th and Welton Streets and is a home away from home for its Members.  

Members have access to a Business Center, three unique dining areas each with its own style and cuisine, banquet facilities, and professionally managed meeting spaces. Included is a 150,000 square foot Fitness Center with state-of-the-art cardio equipment, personal trainers, a squash facility with five international courts and two doubles courts, six handball/racquetball courts, an indoor pool, an eight-lane bowling center and in-house licensed daycare. There is also on-site parking for 300 cars. The DAC is the only place in Denver where a Member can park their car, play squash, join a group fitness class or swim, have their kids in licensed pre-school and have dinner with the family – all in the same facility.  

For more than 130 years, the most active Members in the Denver community have made The DAC the place to belong. For a guided tour of The Denver Athletic Club, please contact the Membership Office by calling 720-931-6748.
