There's so much more to the Harvard club than meets the eye.
You may know us by name and heritage, but there’s so much more to the Harvard Club than meets the eye. We’re not just a club, we’re a circle of friends, family, colleagues, past and present classmates.
Our philosophy is simple: belong. Whether you stop in for a networking event, a special dinner, a quick workout or just a relaxing evening, you’re sure to make connections—and memories—that extend far beyond our walls. Our history may come with traditions but it’s our members who shape our thriving community every day.
A Tradition of Excellence
Platinum Club of America
Once again, the Club Leaders Forum has awarded us the prestigious distinction of Five Star Platinum Club of America. Given only to the top 4% of private clubs nationwide, it’s a recognition we strive for year after year as a source of pride for ourselves and a sense of value for our members.
Platinum Club of the World
The Club Leaders Forum has also awarded us their highest honor: Platinum Club of the World. This is the pinnacle of recognition for private clubs, and we are honored to be among the short list of clubs spanning 34 countries.
Our Historic Back Bay Clubhouse.
Immerse yourself in tradition at the Back Bay Clubhouse. With a classic interior spanning six floors, this historic location on Commonwealth Avenue offers elegant restaurants, function rooms, and overnight accommodations. It also serves as the home to our fitness center and squash courts.
The best thing about the Club’s monthly cocktail party is the friendliness – seeing old friends and meeting new people.
The Easter buffet was delicious and so many offerings; the thought the price was very reasonable. The Easter Bunny was fun and friendly – a hit every year!
The service staff is exceptional. Also the kitchen staff does an amazing variety of superb dishes.
The food was excellent, my friends and I had a great evening with other members at our table and will continue to go to these great monthly parties.
To be the social, intellectual, and athletic hub of Harvard alumni and our
affiliated community in the Greater Boston area.
