The Windsor Club is on the move.
Today it was announced that the club has signed a 10-year lease agreement to occupy the historic Wiser’s Reception Centre on the grounds of Hiram Walker’s.
“The Wiser’s Reception Centre and the Windsor Club are treasured establishments in the Windsor community. We saw this partnership as a way to preserve a piece of Windsor’s heritage and an important investment in the exciting renaissance that’s taking place in the Walkerville area,” said Patrick O’Driscoll, President of Hiram Walker & Sons. “It is a natural fit because we share a history with the Windsor Club, through club members who have worked for Hiram Walker and the web of our many suppliers and professional acquaintances.”
The lease with the Windsor Club brings new life into the building. As Hiram Walker exports J.P. Wiser’s beyond Canadian borders, the Windsor Club is the perfect venue to welcome and entertain an increasing number of guests and clients interested in the company’s great Canadian whisky brands.
The Wiser’s Reception Centre is slated to undergo renovations over the coming year, which will include a patio overlooking the waterfront, full service restaurant, bar and lounge and refined event space.
“As the premier private business club in Windsor/Essex County, we’re thrilled to relocate the Windsor Club to the Wiser’s Reception Centre,” said Federica Nazzani, President of the Board of Directors of the Windsor Club. “We believe the unique heritage space will create a renaissance for the club, attracting new members while maintaining our strong tradition of promoting social interaction and business networking and honouring a part of Windsor’s history.”
The Windsor Club opened in November 1903 and has 220 members. Celebrating its 111th anniversary, it is the oldest club in Windsor and one of the oldest clubs in Canada.
The lease commences on May 1, 2015.
