The Paddock Club

The Paddock Club is an expansive, beautifully decorated event space and art gallery featuring equestrian inspired decor. You can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, gathering at intimate sitting areas complete with overstuffed leather sofas, broad coffee tables, saddle leather club chairs, play games, watch flat screen TVs, and enjoy the full service bar

High top dining tables are crafted from refurbished wine barrels with copper tops, the ideal spots for eating and conversing with friends. Food options include “grab n’ go” or order from the International Cafe.

The right side of the Paddock Club is dedicated to fun and games, featuring pool tables, foosball, shuffleboard and a karaoke machine.

Equestrian style underscores the overall atmosphere, accented by an antique sleigh bench, horse statues and eight framed custom equine lithographs created by internationally acclaimed artist Sarah Lockwood-Taylor. Ask us about purchasing her work.
