Ascots and cravats when worn as such are a suitable replacement for ties.  

Lady members and guests are required to wear clothing meeting similar standards; specifically, tailored clothing that otherwise conforms to this Rule, e.g. suits, dresses, or skirts and dress shirts or sweaters, or tailored pants with dress shirts and jackets, elegant sweaters or scarves of equivalent formality. Tailored pants paired with tailored/beaded tops may be worn without a jacket, sweater or scarf.

The following clothing is prohibited in the Club House: jeans and other denim apparel, leisurewear of any type, Capri, and cargo pants, rompers, shorts, leggings, T-shirts, sportswear and bare midriff tops, mini-skirts, athletic clothing, beach or thong sandals, and sneakers or other athletic shoes. Members and guests traveling to or from an athletic facility, the 10th Floor Terrace, or guest rooms may pass through the lobby, to and from the elevator and the front door, wearing informal dress that includes no prohibited items. 

The only exceptions are:

  • During the weekend, jackets are not required and polo shirts may be worn in the Tap Room, Billiard Room, Television Room, and 10th Floor Terrace.  
  • Members and guests may wear informal and prohibited clothes and shoes when traveling to and from, and while using, an athletic facility or guest room but must enter and leave via the side entrance at 3 West 54th Street and go to the respective area directly.  

Cellular phones and all other digital devices must remain silent and may not be used in any of the public areas of the Club House, such as the Atrium, Douglas Reading Room, dining rooms, corridors, athletic facilities, and restrooms. The conduct of business meetings, display of business papers or any meeting where the discussion becomes disturbing to others are also prohibited in public areas of the Club House. Private rooms are available by reservation.

Cellular phones and other digital devices may be used for making and/or receiving phone calls and electronic messages in private rooms and in the telephone booths located throughout the Club – most of which provide adequate reception for these devices. In addition, many of the Club’s house phones may be used without charge for outgoing local calls, including most calls to local cellular exchanges. Please keep usage brief and be considerate of others seeking to use the booths.
