The Downtown Club at The Met

Discover Houston's premier fitness and executive club.

Founded by Executives, for Executives

The Downtown Club at The Met was founded in 1976 by some of the most prominent business and government leaders in Texas including Congressman Bill Archer, John B. Carter, Jr., John B. Connally, Trammell Crow and Robert Glaze. It’s the kind of place where top lawyers hold meetings and CEOs make deals with clients. The close-knit community even weathered a hurricane together in the 90s, when those who couldn’t evacuate in time partied into the night. Today, our premier downtown Houston business club continues to be a welcoming home away from home for community leaders.

We Mean Business On the Courts and Off

What began as a tennis megacenter where people came to train in 1976 ultimately became a nighttime dining, indoor tennis and social hot spot for the who’s who of Houston. The Downtown Club at The Met was founded by some of the biggest names in Houston at the time, including former professional tennis player Sammy Giammalva, real estate mogul Ken Snitzer and nighttime dining manager Gerald Robinson, among others.
