NEVER A DULL MOMENT

SPORTS, MUSIC, ARTS, GAMES, SPECIAL EVENTS...

A RICH SOCIAL CALENDAR

Social connection is the number one ingredient for a happy and healthy life -- more so than diet and exercise. The Bungalow Club offers a beguiling calendar of events and activities for sharing fun and connecting with others.

SOME BUNGALOW HALLMARKS...

House Concerts in The Living Room twice a month -- 50 people can lounge comfortably and with cocktails in hand! In the good weather we will move outside to the spacious Loggia -- often on a late Sunday afternoon for our Sunday Chill series and members can hang out around the fire pit or in the club chairs while listening to great live music.

Our Curiosity Conversations Series invites interesting people with things to say -- kind of a cross between a TED talk and the Ellen Show.

The Neighborhood Project is an innovative film series where members socialize, watch a hand-selected film from the curators at The Nantucket Project, and have a rich discussion afterwards. This film series is generously sponsored by Founding Member Shanna McBurney.

Cooking with the Chefs is a cooking class/demo where the Chefs will share their secrets! 

Club Competitions a few times a year, to keep our friendly competitive juices flowing. 

Winemaker Dinners and Spirits Dinners - happening monthly!

Field Trips to out-of-the-box farms, makers and innovators in the food world. 

Clubs within the Club that members have expressed interest in starting and leading in 2019: mahjong, knitting, bookclub, intro to road biking for women, kayak club on the Exeter River across the street, bourbon tasting, cigar appreciation.

A few signature Club Parties:  Mardi Gras Madness,  Academy Awards, Kentucky Derby Day, Cinco de Mayo, fall harvest with an Outstanding in the Field dinner, All Hallow's Eve, Holiday Vibe at The Bungalow.

SPORTS AND FITNESS

At The Bungalow Club we aim to make physical activity and sports easy, sociable, fun and not intimidating!

The heart of the sports program is the group activities and “the clubs within the club”. Like walking, running, kayaking, mountain and road biking, snowshoeing, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, the possibilities are endless!

Bungalow members have private access to the pocket park across the street at Porches, and the Club will be purchasing a kayak this spring for members to put in on the river only steps away. 

There are occasional weekly classes (taught by freelance teachers, for a fee per class). We plan to have qui gong, meditation and mindfulness, bootcamp, block therapy,  yoga, anything is possible!

 

THE ARTS

The Artist in Residence program keeps artists and their art in our midst! Two or three artists per year are offered complimentary membership in exchange for sharing their art with the Club and mixing it up with the members. A musician will play for the Club on several dates and the visual artist will have a “gallery show” in a non-gallery space, like The Living Room or The Loft. Our first gallery show is on now, featuring Pamela duLong Williams and it is marvelous -- come have a viewing and stay for dinner or bunch!

MUSIC

Live music is an integral part of the life of the Club! It is our goal to have live music – of all sorts -- at least once a month. We have had some amazing House Concerts with Sam Robbins, Scott Kirby, David Ayscue, Todd Hearon, Sharon Ippolito, Ben Zanfagna, Ryan Judd and so many to come in our future! The music is performed in various spots in the Club, but the primary venue will be The Listening Room, which is actually the Loft converted into a pop-up music venue. The Listening Room is patterned after the famous Bluebird Café in Nashville, where you go to listen to music, and not to talk! You will go to The Listening Room when you truly want to listen to the music, and give the musician your full attention and respect, and you go to The Orange Bar when you want to talk – and ne’er the twain shall meet!

Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
