Club & Dining

When Queen City made the decision to move to Toronto Island in 1921, the members at the time showed a prescience that has served QCYC well. In the 90+ years since, the clubhouse has become a harbour icon, maintained to preserve the ambience that has been a hallmark at the club.

The upper-level Great Hall affords members and guests a splendid panorama of the continuously developing Toronto skyline. Yet the Great Hall has remained much as it was originally designed, a room that manages to remain warmly welcoming while at the same time accommodating virtually any club function.

Improvements over the years have only improved the clubhouse, inside and out. The balcony on the east side of the Great Hall overlooks the lagoon and has proved one of the most popular meeting places for a drink or a meal. Also on the upper level, the bar and kitchen are equipped to handle hundreds of occasions such as Sail Past, and to service the comfortable, informal dining room.

In the lower level of the clubhouse, a large foyer welcomes members and guests and is furnished with Queen City's trophies - among them some of the oldest ever awarded on the lake - and other historical artifacts. Off the foyer are the club office and men's and women's washrooms.

Also on the lower level is the Snug Room, a comfortable lounge area used for meetings and smaller functions. The Snug Room, with an adjacent washroom and casual kitchen facilities, affords the same spectacular view of the harbour and city. The Snug Room is left open during the winter for members visiting their boats or enjoying winter in the park.

Outside the clubhouse, there is ice for sale and a laundry room.
