CHOP Steakhouse, the Club's home of top-quality Certified Angus Beef steaks and other all-American favorites, now welcomes Members and their guests only.
Third-floor dining was open to the general public for a trial period, but the Board of Governors voted to end the trial at the April Board meeting.
"At the Club, Members always come first, without exception," says Club President John Durkin. "The venue is very popular with Members and doesn't need to be open to non-Members to be sustainable."
The other third-floor dining venue, 220° [Modern Teppan], has been a Member-only space since it opened last year.
With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe continuing to stress the importance of women in a successful economy, the latest issue of the Club's monthly publication, iNTOUCH, features a number of business-owning Members, who discuss the challenges of being a female entrepreneur in Japan.
Elsewhere in the issue, CHOP Bar's resident mixologist Nathan Baggs offers an inside peek at his libation lab, early-morning swimmers espouse the benefits of the Club's masters programs and writer Sophie Richard, who will speak at the Club in May, gives her rundown of the best art museums in Japan.
Check out the rest of the issue and back issues of iNTOUCH.
The Club will host a live screening of the long-awaited fight between legendary boxers Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao on Sunday, May 3.
Members of all ages are invited to take in this fight of the century from Las Vegas while enjoying a full buffet breakfast and all-you-can-drink beer (adults only) in the New York Ballroom.
The Club's traditional home for screened sports, Traders' Bar, will also show the bout between undefeated, five-division world champion Mayweather and eight-division world champion Pacquiao.
The Club is preparing for another busy summer.
With the weather warming up, the Club offers spots to enjoy the outdoors or cool down when the city begins to sweat.
The Club's alfresco café, Splash!, opens on weekends and holidays from April 25. Conveniently located next to the Sky Pool, it's the perfect place to unwind with a coffee or grab a post-swim snack.
Meanwhile, youngsters can enjoy another season of aqua fun and frolics when the outdoor Kids' Water Park opens again on May 2.
The Board of Governors recently approved an increase to the Club's entrance fees to maintain a high level of service at the Club while ensuring sustainable, diverse membership growth.
From July 1, 2015, foreign residents will pay an entrance fee of ¥1.5 million (an increase of ¥300,000) and prospective Japanese Members will pay ¥3.5 million (an increase of ¥500,000).
"With this entrance fee change in mind, this would be a good time to introduce any coworkers or friends to the benefits of Club membership," says Club President John Durkin. "Members who introduce somebody who joins the Club can earn a ¥40,000 voucher for use at the Club."
