& Tradition

The Mountain Oyster Club, established in 1948, is a private club composed of members united in the interest of preserving Southwestern heritage and “Old Pueblo” tradition. Their foundations in this way of life vary. Whether they come from pioneer stock with deep roots in Arizona, are ranchers, farmers, or horsemen, are professionals working with livestock interests or are Western artists or collectors of Western art, this society of Westerners remains dedicated to western traditions, art and the western way of life.

Each year the Club sponsors the Annual Southwestern Art Show and Sale, considered to be one of the most outstanding showcases of western art by many of the country’s finest artist. The club boasts its own extensive collection of western art.

The warmth and Southwestern hospitality of the Mountain Oyster Club embraces you as you escape the busy East side with a drive down the Italian Cypress lined drive to the former mansion constructed of block and native fieldstone. Guests enjoy views of the Catalina Mountains and two beautiful water fountains as they enjoy fine wine and spirits and dine on the finest cuts of beef and other dishes prepared to perfection. The dinning rooms, banquet rooms, patio and bar offer a comfortable place to dine and entertain and conduct business.
