The house was built in 1888 as a bar, in which many railway and postmen frequented. Over the decades, the clubhouse was expanded in several steps to its current form with a two-part dining room and small halls on the upper floor. From 1981 to 2022, the «Klubhaus» was known as the „Spanish Clubhouse“ and was managed by the «Hogar Español» association. The house belong to the city of St.Gallen since 2015. In recent years, the continuation of the house has been on the brink several times. Once because of the need for renovation of the property, another time because of a new building project. The clubhouse has had new tenants since 2022. Sam Stephens and Mark Seman will take over the business for the next ten years. Also «The Pinch»-Restaurant belongs the two.
Instead of tapas like before, the «Klubhaus» serves sushi and pad thai and is a modern, pan-Asian restaurant.
Where there used to be a bowling alley, there is now a hidden bar. To get to the bar, you have to open an old wall clock, inside there is a bell. If you ring the bell there, the bartender will open the door and you will enter a small bar. There is room for a maximum of 22 guests, which makes the bar so cozy and charming. -> Try the «Dirty Cucumber» Cocktail
