The Hartford Club is a private club located in Hartford, Connecticut, and founded in 1873.[2] Notable members include Mark Twain.

The Hartford Club began as a union of local men's clubs amalgamated due to financial woes. It began admitting women members in the 1970s. Its present clubhouse, located at 46 Prospect Street, was designed in 1901 by Robert D. Andrews of Andrews, Jacques and Rantoul.[2] It opened on January 1, 1908. The clubhouse is close to the Connecticut State Capitol. Since 1984, it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1][3][2]

The club includes dining rooms, private banquet and meeting rooms, concierge services for members, and members' activities.
