The Plaza Club, which has hosted Presidents and other dignitaries on the top floor of the Frost Bank Building for decades, is moving to the 30th floor of the Weston Center, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Dr. Maria Ferrier, who is the the Chair of the Plaza Club, says the new location will share the spectacular panoramic views of downtown which the late Tom Frost touted when he formed the Plaza Club as an exclusive venue for business and corporate functions back in 1973.
"Weston Centre is one of the tallest buildings in San Antonio and will be the new home for our Club. Since the Club’s inception in 1973 we have enjoyed our location atop the Frost Bank Tower. After more than forty five years, it’s time to relocate," Ferrier said.
She says the new space will have Riverwalk access, and there is more parking for visitors and guests.
She says the new club, at 10,000 feet, will be slightly smaller than the existing Plaza Club, but she says it will be 'more efficiently designed.
The Plaza Club is a privately-owned members only club which has remained one of the most exclusive locations in the city.
No time frame for the move was announced, but Ferrier said there will be 'several several months of operation in our current location.'
The Frost Bank Building is being purchased by the City of San Antonio, as the bank moves to the new Frost Tower across the street.
