Lonely Planet review

Founded in 1898 to promote public interest in the arts, the National Arts Club boasts a beautiful, vaulted, stained-glass ceiling above the wooden bar in its picture-lined front parlor. The building itself was designed by Calvert Vaux, one of the creators of Central Park. The club holds art exhibitions, ranging from sculpture to photography, that are open to the public from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday (check the website for upcoming shows).

It also hosts life drawing classes on Monday evenings from 7pm to 9pm (see http://simonlevenson.com for details).
