Garret Club is a historic woman's clubhouse located at Buffalo in Erie County, New York. It was designed by noted Buffalo architect Edward Brodhead Green and constructed in 1929. It is a two-story, "L"-shaped building constructed of hollow tile with a stucco finish. It has a slate tile roof and is reflective of French vernacular architecture.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1] It is located in the Elmwood Historic District–East.

The club was founded in March 1902. Katharine Cornell joined in 1913 and was an active member, participating in theatrical productions.[3]
