The Little Rock Club, which sits atop the 30th floor of the Regions Bank building in downtown Little Rock, announced Friday (March 27) it will close permanently on March 31, 2020.
“It is with deep regret that I announce the Little Rock Club will cease operations on March 31, 2020. The Club suffered a drop in membership during the 2008/2009 financial crisis and the membership has not increased to the level that will support stable financial performance,” a note from president Ray Dillon said to members.
“We have survived by aggressively pursuing banquets and special events. Restrictions on assembling due to COVID -19 regulations resulted in many of these events being cancelled. They also resulted in closing our dining room and Happy Hour and the combination of these circumstances make continuing operations unfeasible,” he added.
The Little Rock Club, a private restaurant and special events venue, took over the space at the top of the downtown Little Rock skyscraper in 1986 after an upscale restaurant, Jacques and Suzanne’s, closed.
