VisualLightBox Gallery


Leaded glass windows breathing light through interior doors, mica and metal art deco-style lights with bands of geometric patterns glowing in the lounge, a timeless “powder puff room” with elegant seating area, and a beloved garden all crafted by the artistic hands of Scarab ancestors bridge the present with the past to create an intimate setting for your dream wedding, event, or meeting.

The building’s exterior fašade of man-made materials with its Arts & Crafts interior is unparalleled.   Please check the availability of dates, since rentals are often booked more then a year in advance.

The Scarab Club is also home to six working artist studios.  Studios are leased on a yearly basis and are considered a coveted member benefit.  Although privately leased, the studios are frequently open to the public during special events or by appointment.  Studios at the Scarab Club are considered a coveted patron member benefit.   Typically, there is a wait-list for studio rentals however, from time-to-time studios do become available.
