Long Description:

The swanky QUEEN CITY CLUB BUILDING, SW, corner of Fourth St. and Broadway, designed by Henry Hake, is a 4-story stone structure in modified Italian Renaissance style.  On the Fourth Street side are stylized symbols of industry and commerce; on the Broadway exterior, symbols of art and agriculture.  The building has a library, dining room, ballroom, and billiard room, besides a number of rooms for lodgers.

Organized in 1874, the club moved into its present quarters in 1927.  Membership is drawn from professional, industrial, and commercial circles.

 ~ from Cincinnati: A Guide to the Queen City and Its Neighbors, 1943, Tour 4, pg. 171

The Queen City Club continues to be located in the building.  The Queen City Club is the oldest and most prestigious private club in the Cincinnati area.  Many of Cincinnati's business leaders both past and present are members of the club.
