A Women’s Place is at the Club

Since 1952, the Petroleum Club of Bakersfield has been a convivial gathering place for Bakersfield’s business and community leaders. Like the seasons, the club has morphed with the times and reflects the cultural changes of our society. Women are a major constituent of today’s workforce, and the club would like to welcome more women to membership. The Petroleum Club provides a unique environment to conduct meetings, discuss plans and close deals. It is private and unobtrusive. It is also a fantastic place to network with other business leaders from diverse industries. 

Additionally, the club provides a safe sanctuary for single women to enjoy the company of each other. Bridge groups, painting nights, dancing, winery tours and many other activities are regularly held for the enjoyment of members.

Marjorie Nixon is a longtime member who regularly hosts her 16-member bridge group in the wine room. Though bridge is serious business, the group finds time to laugh and enjoy the exceptional view. Marjorie is so fond of the club that she gave the crystal chandeliers in the ballroom as a gift.

Patty Poeshel is a stylist for Cabi, a fashionable women’s clothing line. Patty loves to utilize the club for her fashion shows. The space is elegant and reflects the impeccable style she hopes to convey through the collections she showcases. The staff is attentive and caring. They know precisely what is required and are well acquainted with Patty’s desires. 

The Petroleum Club of Bakersfield is affiliated with numerous other private clubs across the world. For women traveling alone, these affiliate clubs can be a home away from home and serve as a friendly face to the female traveler. Of course, the club has hosted many weddings, bridal showers, birthdays and parties of all types. Meeting rooms and a fitness facility also are available. 

Come enjoy the view from the 12th. The Petroleum Club of Bakersfield is hosting a meet and greet from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 17. Members and nonmembers are welcome to enjoy cocktails or wine (one complimentary ticket) and hor d’oeurves. Please RSVP to Ricelia, 661.324.6561. 5060 California Ave., Bakersfield, CA 93309
