The club, despite its age, still maintains its past link with the colonists. There are big portraits of British lords who successfully took care of the colonial expansion and administration, the pretty old Nagaraj bar where the lords and biggies would have gulped down whisky and good old wine to subdue their frustration and fatigue. There are old wooden stools too. On the first floor there are grand old piano, old grandfather clock and a dinning hall, etc.
