For nearly ninety years, accomplished and interesting women have gathered at The Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia to enjoy its wealth of resources -- programs presented by scores of stimulating speakers, impressive art exhibitions, delicious food and drink, parties of all kinds, performances by noted musicians, book clubs, mah jongg, bridge, captivating excursions, and much more.

The Club derives its forward-thinking spirit from the model of its founders, who hired prominent architect Edmund Gilchrist and French-born interior designer Jules Bouy to create a clubhouse on a charming street not far from Rittenhouse Square that reached beyond the conventional styles of the day. Today that clubhouse, which opened in 1930, is recognized as having one of the most important Art Deco/Moderne interiors in Philadelphia.
