History


The Denver Athletic Club is one of the oldest and most prestigious private clubs in the United States. Founded in 1884, the Club was built so that those "engaged in indoor pursuits might gain healthful diversion."




A historical landmark in the heart of the city, The Denver Athletic Club is adjacent to the Denver Convention Center and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The 16th Street Mall, 17th Street Financial District, and the Denver Pavilions are within an easy walk. While maintaining a state of-the-art athletic facility, The DAC has also become a place to meet and cultivate business relationships, dine and dance, to catch up on reading and to play cards, to relax and to have fun. In recent years, the Club has developed a balance of social functions and athletic pursuits for its Members.
