Located in a Greek Revival townhouse facing Gramercy Park, The Players offers a full range of amenities in a genteel and convivial setting including a grill room and bar, dining room, library,
reading room and comfortable lounges. The Players also offers a number of events throughout the year that Press Club members may attend from readings and lectures to
musical evenings and theatrical presentations.
Reciprocal privileges are also part of this optional membership perk at New York City clubs such the Explorers, Friars, Salamagundi, India House and the Downtown Association and at a total of
about 30 clubs around the U.S. and abroad.
