Club History

Founded in 1934, the Dallas Petroleum Club has evolved from a fraternity of prominent oil men into one of the finest private city clubs in the country. The members cherish the Club because of the personal attention and exceptional service they receive once they enter its quarters. Surrounded by elegant furnishings and works of art, members and their guests enjoy fine dining, social events and private conference facilities.

Beyond business, members look to the Club for camaraderie fostered by social events that bring them together for entertainment and relaxation.

One of the highlights of the Club is its Annual Ball with over 1300 in attendance. This incredible party is a long standing tradition of the Club dating back to 1934. It has evolved over the years getting bigger and better to what is now a gala second to none.
Soon after the new year, fathers proudly escort their daughters and granddaughters to the Father-Daughter dinner. Each Spring, the Club's Easter buffet celebration is always full to capacity. On Mother's Day, members' families gather to celebrate the important women in their lives.The Club's seafood buffets offer the best selection and variety in part because the Club's fresh fish and seafood is flown in daily to ensure the absolute finest #1 grade fish is offered to its members. Member's children look forward to a special visit with Santa at our annual Children's Christmas party.
