Welcome to St. Matthew’s Clubhouse, 450 Broadview Avenue

Located on the eastern edge of Riverdale Park, St. Matthew’s Clubhouse is a 100+ year old building that was originally home to St. Matthew’s Lawn Bowling Club. Today, St. Matthew’s Clubhouse maintains much of its original charm, including decorative fireplaces, high 12 foot ceilings, and a wrap-around veranda. St. Matthew’s Clubhouse became the home of East End Arts in the Spring of 2018.
