inside of the cosmos club

Spend a Sunday strolling through the city and land at one of the most prominent historic clubs:  The Cosmos Club.  Here you’ll be treated to a champagne Brunch at The Cosmos Club.  The Cosmos Club, incorporated in Washington, D.C. in 1878, is a private social club for women and men distinguished in science, literature, the arts or public service housed in the elegant Townsend mansion constructed in 1873.  Members come from a wide variety of professions; a common theme is a relation with scholarship, creative genius, or intellectual distinction. The Club offers an impressive array of intellectual and cultural programs for every member interest. The Club’s collection of 9,500 volumes and nearly 140 periodicals is housed in exquisite rooms that offer a quiet haven for reading and contemplating.
