About The Club, Inc.
The Club is a private dinner dance club, cantilevered off the side of Red Mountain. Architect John Davis designed The Club, which was constructed in 1951. The sweeping panoramic view is visible from the slanted floor to ceiling windows of the multilevel circular ballrooms. Circular and parabolic forms are incorporated throughout the building including a rotating dance floor which served as the model for the floor in the movie Saturday Night Fever. The pervasive script, “The Club” appears on door handles and in neon signs throughout the building. The Club reflects a unique time of economic growth in the history of the city of Birmingham and it was a very active place during 60’s and 70’s which was significant for other historical reasons.
