LAAC TURNS 141 TODAY!
In a frontier town in the Wild West, the idea of forming a club to pursue social and physical fitness was revolutionary. But on September 8, 1880 a small group of influential Angelenos did just that.

And so, they created the Los Angeles Athletic Club dedicated to the lifelong pursuit of health-giving amusements.

The Club grew alongside the city itself—with our rapid
development, proud stories, and unique personality
inextricably tied to those of LA.

By 1912, the expanding
city and our successful place in it inspired us to build our
twelve-story, John Parkinson designed, Beaux-Arts style,
clubhouse on Seventh and Olive featuring the first indoor pool built above ground on the west coast.

After decades of renovation and innovation, our core
purpose still reflects the revolutionary vision of our
founders and the ideals they set for our members.
