This was another of the clubhouses of the elite Jonathan Club, a men's club formed in 1895 by supporters of President William McKinley.

Interior furnishings were lavish and Renaissance (either Spanish or Italian) in character; the lobby floor was clad in pink Tennessee marble and the ceiling covered with painted ceilings by Giovanni Battista Smeraldi. The 2nd floor had a Game Room and a Grill Room on the west side. Formal rooms existed on the 3rd floor. Fitness facilities--including a pool and weight room--occupied the 5th and 6th floors. A Tuscan Terrace exists on the building's roof. In addition to this facility downtown, the Jonathan Club leased a suite at the Staples Center.
