a few questions to read through to help you get a better sense of life at Wingtip, before joining.
- Is this a men’s club?
No. Do they still make those?
- What is the Club at Wingtip?
A space for men & women that appreciate the spirit of everything the store represents: the finer things in life. A custom tailored suit. A delicious glass of wine or whiskey. A hand-rolled cigar. Great food. Great company. Admittedly, the amenities are most likely to appeal to those with masculine tastes, but who are we to question your style? We believe in discriminating tastes, without discrimination.
- Where is it?
Wingtip is located at 550 Montgomery St at the corner of Clay, in the original Bank of Italy building. The Club, open to members and their guests, is on the top two floors of the building (10 & 11).
- What does the menu look like?
Believe it or not, you can browse the entire bar & restaurant menu from your computer or tablet (it's not really optimized for your phone yet). To browse, click "Continue as Guest."
The short answer is that we take our food & beverage program very seriously, as you have to in a city like San Francisco with so many world-class options. We would describe our cuisine as "modern club fare" -- our most popular dishes are our burger, Caesar salad, and Billionaire's Bacon. A handmade pasta is almost always on the menu, and of course, a steak. Our cheese cart, served table-side, is a can't-miss. Jamón Ibérico, caviar, truffles, and other specialty items make frequent appearances.
Our wine program, overseen by Aaron Patrick, an Advanced Sommelier previously at Gary Danko and Bourbon Steak, includes a 2,000 bottle temperature-controlled cellar, priced generously for the benefit of members. Our By the Glass typically features 20+ options, and for those want to splurge, our Coravin tasting program allows you to try a couple ounces of juice you wouldn't normally find offered except by the bottle. The true oenophile would add a Wine Locker to his/her membership to store their own wine for consumption in the Club.
The cocktails & spirits program, overseen by Anthony Cozeck, previously at Comstock Saloon and Bourbon Steak, is anchored by a whiskey collection of 400 bottles. The #1 and #2 cocktails ordered are a Martini and a Manhattan, although they trade places regularly. The remainder of the cocktail menu changes seasonally. The whiskey collection has established our reputation, but a fan of Rum, Gin, Tequila, or Cognac will also find plenty to like. Teetotalers will find to much to like in our selection of coffee, tea, botanical colas, fresh squeezed juice, mocktails, and bottled waters.
- What is the policy for inviting guests?
Wingtip is meant to be a place to entertain family & friends, clients & colleagues. Members may be bring up to three (3) guests to the Club at any time without advance notice. Entertaining larger groups can be accommodated in our private parlor rooms with a reservation.
- What are the club's hours?
Currently, the Club opens at 8am and closes at 10pm on Monday, and 11pm on Tuesday through Friday. The Club is open from 1pm until 8pm on Saturday.
- Is there a dress code in the Club?
While we think everyone looks better in a finely tailored suit, there is no formal dress code. Business casual or nattier is recommended. We do prohibit shorts, sandals, and sweats, but we don't believe that should be controversial.
- How much does membership cost?
There are multiple levels of membership — all of which enjoy the Club’s full list of amenities, liberal guest policy, and exclusive shopping privileges. Your choice of membership level will be based on how often you plan to visit the Club. The current rates are at the bottom of the page. Visiting and Social members should rest assured that if they find themselves using the Club more than anticipated, they can upgrade by just paying the difference between their current membership level and their desired membership level. The initiation and/or dues are subject to change at any time for new members; take heed, membership will never be less expensive than it is today.
- Will the number of members be limited?
The membership will be capped at 1,200 Regular and Social members. We expect the Club to be full by the end of 2017.
- I'm <insert your age here>. Are there other members my age?
If you answered with anything over "21" and under "dead," then yes, there are members your age. For what it's worth (fwiw for you kids), the average age of our membership is 40, but we have members in their early 20s and members in their late 70s. Wingtip prides itself on the diversity of its membership.
- How long has Wingtip been around?
Short answer: 12 years. Longer answer: we'll tell you on your first visit.
- How do I see the place and learn more?
Just scroll down a few more inches and click on the Request a Tour button. We'll ask a few questions that we would love answers to, and we usually get back to inquiries within 24-48 hours.
