Nope! Almost all City Club forums are open to everybody. However, membership will get you a discount on admission and priority registration for high interest forums.
Beyond a discount on tickets, members receive invitations to special events and have opportunities to participate in member-led programming committees. Also, members all share a sense of pride in being part of something that helps to make the community and democracy a little bit stronger. You can view all the membership levels and benefits here, or call us and we'll talk to you about it!
Reservations typically close 24 hours before the event begins. If you miss the deadline, call us and ask about the wait list. We do our best to let everyone in, but we can't make any guarantees. It’s best to plan ahead and make your reservation at least 24 hours in advance.
No, the City Club does not have a dress code, and we never have. Business casual is suggested because you might feel awkward in a concert shirt. But if that's what you have on, we hope you’ll still attend!
We livestream nearly all of our forums on our website. You can also listen to a live broadcast of our Friday forums on 90.3 WCPN. Our forums rebroadcast on Sundays at 10 a.m. on WVIZ and at 10 p.m. on 104.9 WCLV, and on Thursdays at 8 p.m. on 90.3 WCPN. If you’re interested in accessing a past forum, check out our archives or search "The City Club of Cleveland Podcast" on iTunes or Stitcher.

The easiest way is by public transportation. We are on the corner of E. 9th and Euclid, which means the RTA's free trolley service stops in front of our building and the health line stops just on the other side of the intersection.
If you're driving, parking is available immediately west of the City Club building in the Euclid Prospect Gateway Garage. The cost is $10.00 before 4:00 pm and $4.00 after 4:00 pm. Special event pricing does apply. If you are at the city club between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm, bring your ticket with you into the City Club and we will validate your ticket to reduce the cost to $3.00.
Discounted valet parking is available at the Metropolitan at the 9 hotel. Bring your ticket in with you to the City Club to receive a discount validation.
Additional, non-discounted downtown parking can be found in the Atrium Garage (645 W. Prospect), Ameritrust Garage (900 W. Prospect), and Gateway Prospect Parking (944/1002 W. Prospect). More parking information can also be found here.
Or, skip the drive and hop on a UH Bike—there's a station right across the street from the City Club. Use discount code G3TR1D1NG for 30 minutes of free ride time on us.
