The City University Club (CUC) is a lunch club in the heart of the financial area of London. It is the ideal place for lunch or simply a drink at the bar. The Club offers a first class meal in discreet circumstances for a modest price.
Originally established in 1895 by Oxbridge graduates who wanted a lunch club in the City. The link with the universities remains, but membership is now much wider, embracing both sexes and many professions. The Club’s new premises as of 29th January 2018 are at 42 Crutched Friars, London EC3N 2AP, which used to house the Lloyds Club.
Members joining the Club find the atmosphere equally conductive to lunching with friends or on their own at the club tables. The food is first-class, the wine-list comprehensive and the service excellent. The Club is open for lunch Monday to Friday throughout the year, closing only between Christmas and the New Year.
The Club enjoys reciprocity with over 450 of the finest clubs throughout the world including many in London and other parts of the country.
