The National Republican Club of Capitol Hill, commonly known as the Capitol Hill Club, is private social club for Republicans in Washington, D.C.[1] It was established in 1951 by former New Jersey Congressman James C. Auchincloss, who with 100 other members formed the club, which is now "one of the most popular gathering spots in Washington for lawmakers, government officials and other members of the political establishment."[2]

The club is a distinct and separate organization from the Republican National Committee and has no official affiliation to the committee or the party.[3]

The Capitol Hill Club is located on Capitol Hill in southeastern Washington on First Street, less than two blocks from the United States Capitol and across from the Capitol South Metro station.
