Imagine you have a neighbour with a big, beautiful, heritage home, who invites you to make their house your house – to drop over whenever you like.

We love it when you visit“, the neighbour says, “Please come. Make yourself at home. Sit in the lounge by the fire; use our WiFi; bring a book; or meet friends for a conversation. The coffee’s always on and the bar is open in the evenings. Sometimes we have music. Sometimes we eat together, play, party or learn together. But mostly we laugh. Mostly we have fun. So please come,” your neighbour says. “Because when you visit you bring our house to life.

In the Charlottetown area you do have a neighbour like that. You have the Haviland Club.

The Haviland Club: all it takes to enjoy this lovely home, to make our Club your Club – and enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship of its members – is a relatively inexpensive annual fee and the acceptance of the membership. Then you can share our house. Any time.

What are the benefits of membership?

Having a third place (away from home and work) that you can call your own:

  • Where you are among friends. Where people care about you.
  • Where the beauty of the space is no small part of the experience – uplifting, soothing, and a source of pride. (Space that members may use for free for member activities, or rent at a discount for non-member activities.)
  • Where the bar is private, the faces are friendly, and you can taste a selection of premium products at low member prices.
  • Where you’re welcome to loiter, use the WiFi, sit with a drink, coffee or tea at any time of day for as long as you want. Because it’s your house.
  • Where you can be part of a variety of entertainments, from $5 Fridays (where a fiver buys a member-prepared home-cooked meal) to snooker, cards, private and public music events, and to innovative events like the Ladies Ultimate Oscars Night (when the girls dress up and the guys serve the champagne) – and much more.
  • Did we mention the friendly faces?
  • Where you can have a say in the kinds of entertainment, or be part of, or help form, clubs that interest you. Improve your guitar skills (for a fee) with Jon Rehder on Wednesday afternoons before Jon and each week’s special guest entertain in the lounge; join the wine appreciation group (the Opin-ion Society :)), the Jays Club, a newly forming book club at the wine bar, or start a group of your own, such as a snooker night at the downstairs tables, a walking or a breakfast club, or any other socially acceptable activity.
  • And membership (for an additional fee) gives access to the Officers’ Pond, for some of the best trout fishing on the Island.

And yes, we know we mentioned the friendly faces, but in the end that’s what really counts: people and friends, and kicking loneliness and boredom out of bounds.

So make our house your house. The Haviland Club. After work. Away from home. Your third place.
