Ivy Singles Happy Hour

The Cornell Club of Washington hosts the Ivy Singles Happy Hour Fall Kick-Off on Friday, September 16th.

The Cornell Club of Washington is pleased to host the Ivy Singles Happy Hour Fall Kick-Off!

We invite you to join us at this charming historic landmark, the James Monroe House, just off Pennsylvania Avenue.

When Timothy Caldwell, a wealthy businessman from Philadelphia, decided in 1806 to build “the handsomest house in the Capital City,” little did he dream that it would one day serve as home for President James Monroe, ambassadors foreign and domestic, the nation’s first weatherman, and the city’s oldest club devoted to the arts.

Inspired by London’s Chelsea Arts Club and the National Arts Club in Manhattan, Washington artists created their own club in May 1916 and purchased the Monroe House as its home. With a focus on painting, sculpture, music, and drama, the Arts Club provided a contrast to Washington’s more traditional clubs. It was also the first club in the city to admit women as charter members.

Explore two floors of spacious rooms where monthly exhibits of paintings and photography line the walls

Relax with old friends and meet new ones.   A good selection of appetizers will be served, and happy hour drink prices will be available for the duration of our party at the cash bar.
