The first “civilized”
members only private club
The first “civilized” members only private club where members are free from all the nonsense of the typical social and night club/lounge.
Members pay an annual membership fee and they can leave their wallet at home. In fact, the member plus three guests will have access to the club any time and can enjoy premium top-shelf open bar and light food every time they visit the club with no tab.
“I am member of several clubs around the world and I have been in many lounges/clubs in my life and I got tired of lack of customer service and table/bottle overselling,” says Domenico Vacca, “I wanted a social club/lounge where the staff knows not only every member by name, but their choices in drinks, food and their social habits so they can anticipate their needs. I want the DV Club to be a place were members and their guests will feel like they are coming to visit me at my home, where my clients and friends can relax, network and meet other members and their guests, all selected for their achievements in life and business”.
The DV Club is located on the second floor of The Domenico Vacca. It will feature a private street entrance on 55th Street, private elevator, 2,500 square feet indoors and a 1,500 square foot terrace that will be covered with a glass structure from October to April.
Hours of operation will be from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. The DV Club will feature lounge areas and a 36-foot long bar counter.
As part of the club “pampering” program, the Club will organize birthday parties where members may invite up to 20 guests and the Club will pick up the tab.
Also a house Club car with chauffeur will be available on a “first come first served” basis to members to and from the DV Club.
The Domenico Vacca is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan on 55th Street at the corner of Fifth Avenue, across from the entrance of the Peninsula Hotel and just a few yards away from the St. Regis Hotel. It is in the center of the luxury shopping Fifth Avenue is known for.

“I have always wanted to express my creativity and sense of style in other lifestyle concepts,” says Domenico Vacca. “This building is a mecca of extravagance and comfort, each aspect and detail a labor of love and a look into my lifestyle. For the new retail space, I wanted to create a place that is not just a storefront, but a destination that draws people to connect, shop, and relax, reviving the instore shopping experience.”
