Welcome to the Arid Club

The Arid Club, a private, non-profit dining club has been serving its members since 1934. The club, previously located in such prestigious locations as The Owyhee Hotel and One Capitol Center, is now situated at 1137 West River Street in the Forest River complex. The club specializes in formal dining and provides its members with a quiet, relaxing atmosphere for both business and personal occasions.

The Arid Club is located at 1137 West River Street in the Forest River complex. Surrounded by lush landscaping with a pleasant view overlooking the Boise River, the club’s ambience imparts a warm, private atmosphere for a variety of social activities. The main dining room is arranged to communicate the club's rustic charm, and the stone fireplace, leather couches, and lavish interior enhance the club's lodge-like surroundings. The club has recently added an informal dining area, which includes seating on the river front in a scenic outdoor setting.

“To establish a club of business and professional men and women whose members are uniformly congenial with one another as nearly as may be, to provide them with an attractive and convenient meeting place, and to exclude there from bigots, propagandists, boosters, go-getters, uplifters, reformers, and snobs.”

-Arid Club Preamble
