The Modern Clubs
Modern private clubs originate from gentleman’s clubs that appeared in England in the second half of the 17th century and reached their greatest heyday and influence in the 18th and 19th centuries. Initially, such institutions were created for the aristocracy. It was impossible to join the ranks of a prestigious club without having a noble origin and a tight wallet. To this day, membership in a closed club is a sign of belonging to a chosen society and opens many doors. Gentleman’s clubs were a place where the atmosphere of informal communication reigned, and important issues were solved with a glass of sherry. Coming to the club, you could be sure that you are surrounded by a peer – people with a similar position in society, education, income level, political views and interests.
- They came to clubs, including in order to take a break from their families. For women, the entrance to the club was ordered. And even today, in times of equality, there are institutions where the fair sex cannot go. Of the currently operating private clubs, of which there are fifty-two in Miami, fourteen still do not allow women to become members. Among them are the oldest clubs, such as White’s.
- However, the fair sex was not going to lag behind the male, and in 1886, The University Women’s Club was founded. The club positioned itself as an institution for women with higher education and it consisted of women of various professions: lawyers, lawyers, writers and many others. The club exists today. In its building on Mayfair, dinner parties, cocktail evenings, exhibitions and discussions are held.
