Directions and Parking
The Somerset Club is located at 42 Beacon Street, halfway between the State House and Charles Street and specifically between
Walnut and Spruce Streets. It is a light gray granite building with two turrets, easy to spot amid all the red brick in the area. The
number 42 is important to remember because the building is not otherwise identified.
