Men have long sought out a respite from the hassles of everyday life, frequently retreating into fantasy cribbage leagues or book clubs built around Magnum, P.I. fan fiction. Today's Groupon offers an escape with only optional Selleck-centric stories: for $150, you get a three-month membership at the Metropolitan Club (a $300 value), located downtown.
The Metropolitan Club offers a relaxing spot for Austin's gents to concentrate on work, loosen up, or entertain guests. The men's-only lounge takes its cue from the elegant gentlemen's clubs of Victorian England, minus the calf-length frock coats and steam-powered butlers of those 19th-century haunts. With a three-month membership, you'll enjoy daily access to the club and its amenities, including the locker room, complimentary shoe shines, free WiFi access, and concierge services. Sweat out stress from ill-fated Dracula-hunting expeditions in the steam room, feel the flowing faux-fingers of a massage lounge recliner, get clothing steam-pressed, or lap up a libation at the member's-only lounge and bar. The lounge itself features eight high-def flat-screen TVs, leather lounge furniture, and premium liquor, beer, and wine selections.
Though not included in the cost of membership, the Metropolitan Club slings a slew of high-end grooming services, with massage, hair care, and waxing just some of the options available for an extra cost. Escape into a lair of dudedom and bro-ness with a three-month membership to the Metropolitan Club.
