A few things about our club

Century Club, located amidst the luxuriant green landscapes of Bangalore’s iconic Cubbon Park, is one of the oldest and the most distinguished clubs of South India. The Club’s name is derived from the exclusive nature of it, as it initially intended to only induct a 100 members upon its inception. The number of members today, stands at a modest 6600 plus. Each member of Century Club embodies the spirit with which the Club was established.

Luxury at its Best

The founder, the visionary and Bharat Ratna recipient Sir M. Visvesvaraya was keen to promote what he felt was good in English society, particularly their orderly habits, punctuality, restraint in speech and social behaviour. But, the factor that motivated him more was when he was the Dewan of Mysore and had planned a visit to Bangalore Club, then known as Bangalore United Services Club. The staff of the Club asked him to take off the Mysore turban and put on a cap if he wanted to enter the Club. This disturbed him no end and he decided to start a club that would allow Indians; as during those days, the Cantonment areas did not allow Indians inside the clubs. He then wrote a letter to the government asking for permission to start a club. Our patron, Shri Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar, who was the ruling king at the time, sanctioned seven acres, 20 guntas of land in Cubbon Park, Seshadri Road. The Century Club was thus founded in 1917 and Sir M. Visvesvaraya served as the first President of the Club.

Century Club is truly an Indian club started by distinguished Indians and fostered by royalty, and also, a tribute to the engineers, architects and government officials who made the erstwhile Mysore State the most progressive in the country and laid the foundation for the growth of Karnataka State. The Club was a common meeting place for people to profit by meeting with leading men from beyond the state who visited Bangalore.

A home - away - from - home, Century Club beckons you and your family to the rustling of leaves and melodious chirruping of birds. You can enjoy a pleasant stay with the luxury you always wanted, at a price so very reasonable, that too, right in the heart of the city! A word of caution – once with nature, you might not want to get back indoors!

Once inside, a cool breeze wafts across a well - manicured lawn into the patio bar. It could be time for a post - work savoury snack and a steaming cup of coffee or perhaps a drink before dining sumptuously…contentment always rules with quiet assurance here. In short, it’s a nice place to catch up with friends or spend time with the family in an old world charm.

The recreational and gaming facilities at the Club include tennis, badminton, billiards, table tennis and tombola. It also has a restaurant, bar, library, chambers, supermarket, vegetable store, pharmacy, salon, cards room, children’s playing enclosure, wellness spa, health club and a swimming pool. There are party halls too, that cater to celebrate occasions. And on most weekends you will see cultural activities bring together members who wish to unwind and forget the drudgery of their daily routines!
