Member Testimonials

Business Matters

“The Metropolitan Club gives me so many reasons to be at the Club whenever I can. Excellent food, atmosphere, and above all, a beautiful view of the Queen City. Since the renovations in the Lounge, there are times when I will spend more than half my week at the Club working in the new touchdown areas! With the needed plug-ins and space to get just about anything accomplished that I need to. Not to mention the parlor rooms for small private meetings that are always easily reserved. For not boasting about being a co-working space, the Met Club does provide me everything I need in lieu of one. Just several reasons to be a Member of one of the greatest business and social groups in the Metro area.”

- Brandon Hubbard, RDI Intuitive Technical

- Brent Cooper, President & CEO, Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce

"The Metropolitan Club has exceeded all our expectations since my wife, Brigitte, and I joined back in 2018. Its Membership offers a diverse group of professionals that clearly support their community simply by being a Member of the club and its backing of local charities. My office is right across the river, and I still find myself looking for excuses to work or meet others for meetings at the Club. In my own business, I have entertained at a number of the reciprocal Country Clubs, which is a welcomed benefit.  My wife and I both participate in the Mentoring Program and drew both professional and personal guidance from the experiences. There really are so many activities for members to enjoy. The Three Pillars of the Club-Business, Community and Belonging Matter-are clearly embodied by the Club Team as well as the Members around. I have and will continue to be happy to tell its story or recommend the Metropolitan Club other professionals in town."

- Sean & Brigitte McGee


Belonging Matters
