The Tavern Club is a private social club in the Central neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Its home is a building designed by architect J. Milton Dyer in a Northern Renaissance style. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1] It was also designated as a landmark by the City of Cleveland.[2]

Dyer was a member of the Tavern Club, which was established 1892-93. He designed a building for the group when it moved from a leased property at 968 Prospect Street to its present building on January 1, 1905. "The exterior construction and the traditional interior decor of the building" have remained essentially the same since the club's beginning.[3]

The upstairs originally contained two squash courts and a rackets court.
