Welcome to the ‘Pitt Society’, a club within the Club for our members under 35 years old. Led by a group of young enthusiasts, the Pitt Society hosts events geared to fostering mentorship and friendships with Albany Club members of all ages. Black-tie dinners in our grand Main Dining Room; casual beers on the Rooftop Lounge; fireside chats; leadership development; and mentoring programs – as well as many networking opportunities – are available for our younger Club members
The Albany Club is home to many young men and women. A third of our Club members are under 35 and it is the fastest growing segment of our membership.
The Pitt Society is named after William Pitt the Younger. Combining Tory values with a new outlook on politics, Pitt was able to steer Britain through fundamental reforms while simultaneously defending Britain from Napoleon. His conservative values, combined with the ability to examine issues with a new outlook, are the principles reflected in our Pitt Society.

At least twice a year, the Club offers its members the opportunity to purchase privately imported wines – one order is typically an old world selection and the other is a selection from new world wines. The selections change regularly, to offer a variety of wines not available at the LCBO.
The Club is also pleased to offer personalized tastings or paired dinners for your friends, family or business. The Club also organizes Wine Maker Dinners, featuring owners of well-regarded wineries throughout the year.
Wine Appreciation Luncheon Series:
For over 30 years, Albany Club members have met on the last Friday of each month to savour wines and foods of the world. Unlike other wine groups, the emphasis is not on impressing one another with wine knowledge, but rather learning about and tasting wines as they are coupled with exquisite foods. Members volunteer to organize the menu, select wines, and share their ideas and experiences.
