The Tampa Club was founded in October 1981. It was Tampa’s first private business club to be non-discriminating, and has been favored by prominent Tampa professionals and their families for three decades. Founding President Max Hollingsworth was followed by John Germany, who has been a Tampa Club member for more than 30 years and can still be found in the club on a regular basis. In addition to the John F. Germany Public Library which bears his name, the Tampa Club’s Germany Boardroom is also named in his honor.
In 1987 the membership outgrew its original location and the club was moved to the top two floors of the Bank of America Plaza, where it resides today. The Tampa Club is an independent, not for profit, member-owned club, providing its members with a blend of prestige, fellowship and excellent amenities. The club's 22104 square feet of interiors is Tampa's gathering place for business and pleasure, elegant enough to impress your most important clients and casual enough to make members and guests feel at home. Like the country’s best private clubs, the Tampa Club provides its members with real value for every dollar spent.
