Style & Club Etiquette

Members and guests will feel comfortable at the club in smart casual attire. Please be sure to communicate this with any guests accompanying you. Denim without rips or distress is permitted while hats, t-shirts, flip flops, athletic wear and shoes, shorts, and loungewear are not. The Craftsman dining experience is intended to be more formal so while enjoying your time here, we ask that male Members and guests in denim and uncollared tops wear a blazer or sport coat.Club and Member events will communicate a specific style etiquette for any events that request a dress code if necessary. For catering and private event functions, the style guide will be determined by the host. It is our goal to create a comfortable environment for our Members and guests while visiting the Club, it is up to our Members to share the style ettiquette with their accompanying guests. The Metropolitan is designed for adults, but it is child-friendly.  

Willis Tower Security

Please call the Club Concierge at 312.876.3200 to provide the names of any guests without elevator badges who will need to be added to the security list. Keep in mind that anyone needing a guest pass will check in with the Willis Tower security desk and be asked to show a government issued identification card. They will also be asked to pass through a metal detector. Because of this, it may take a few additional minutes so be sure to plan accordingly when arriving for your reservation. You will be seated once all Members and guests in your party have checked in with the Club Concierge at The Metropolitan.
