The club is located in an exclusive 20,000 sq. ft space at the 133 year old heritage hotel Taj West End – one of the most sought after hotels in Bangalore.

The IIMB Club premises at the hotel premises was rebuilt and reimagined for the purpose of having an exclusive club for alumni. The membership is limited and has 400 members right now. Corporate Memberships are open. Alumni can enjoy the luxury of having a beautifully crafted and homely place to entertain guests, family, and friends at special rates that are lower than the rates at the Taj. 

Nestled amidst 20 acres of flora and defined by its illustrious heritage and colonial charm, Taj West End,Bengaluru is a lush sanctuary in Bangalore. Started by the Bronsons as a 10-room inn in 1887, it now has 117 magnificent rooms and suites that dot the sprawling landscaped gardens, each with a gorgeous view. Home to the second-oldest tree in the city and a Victorian-era postbox still in use, this ambient 5 star hotel in Bangalore is a perfect synthesis of the charms of a bygone era and modern amenities and comforts. In close proximity to the Bengaluru Golf Club and the Turf Club, this legendary hotel on Race Course Road is a prominent landmark in the center of the city with the Bengaluru International Airport only an hour away.
