The Cape Town Club formed as a result of a merger in 1976 of Cape Town's two oldest clubs, the City Club (founded 1878) and the Civil Service Club (founded 1858). The club, originally in Queen Victoria Street, is now accommodated in Leinster Hall (a 19th century manor house & national monument) in the historic Gardens area of the city.
The club's new home was officially inaugurated on 31 March 2002 by Mr Tito Mboweni, the Governor of the South African Reserve Bank. Nestling in the spectacular Table Mountain bowl which overlooks Table Bay, the club house is within easy walking distance of the city's rejuvenated commercial centre, and the Company's Gardens, Cape Town's major inner-city park which was established by the Dutch settlers who founded the Cape settlement in 1652 as a victualling station for the ships of the Dutch East India Company as they plied their lucrative trade between Europe and the Far East.
