About Olympic Club's 111th Birthday

Olympic Club's 111th Birthday

Oly Club survived Prohibition and, almost a hundred years later, we’re still relieved. Join us for our birthday party including a pop-up Prohibition bar, Roy Gardner* silent film, and plenty more fascinating history during post-film property tours. Passporters, see what you can find on our Discovery Hunt. And of course we’ll have live music and food and drink specials so you can raise a glass with us!
