History & Restoration
The club building itself is one of the priceless gems of the city’s architecture in the first decade of the 20th century. Built in 1906-1907 for the former mayor of Sofia, Dimitar Yablanski, this unique, exquisite architectural creation carries the signature of Austro-Hungarian architect Friedrich Grünanger. The lavish decoration was done by the royal decorator of the Bulgarian Royal Family, Andreas Greis. Designed in Neo-Baroque style, with some Renaissance elements, the house boasts interior stucco done in the Rococo style.
Officially proclaimed a monument of culture back in 1955, it underwent extensive reconstruction and was carefully restored to its original glamour to the very last and small detail. In 2011 the doors opened again – welcoming members and guests of the premium private club in Bulgaria.
