Frieling Club Lounge
Removed from the Club’s ordinary bustle, the Frieling Club Lounge is a sophisticated, private space limited to Club members and their guests boasting a bird’s-eye view of both the Performance Center and the West Rink. The Frieling Club Lounge includes dinner seating for 200 individuals and is served by the adjacent professional kitchen which is managed by an on-staff executive chef. The space features a dining room, reception area and lounge, fireplace, variable lighting, high-end finishes and walls of glass. During the day, members can use the space to relax, watch TV, connect with friends, and watch some great skating. The Frieling Club Lounge also hosts social gatherings and private events.

Susan Meminger Frieling and John Frieling
The Frieling Club Lounge reflects the gratitude of Club members John Frieling and Susan Meminger Frieling for the social values that have enriched their lives and those of their children, Brooke and James. Friendships forged in the Club’s close-knit community, including the Club’s traditional Friday night dinners, led the couple to become influential and loyal volunteers, with a special interest in securing a successful transition to its new home in Norwood.
Susan co-led a three-year research project that chronicled the Club’s remarkable history, establishing an important institutional archive of records and documents for the Club’s trophy and memorabilia room. John served on the Board of Directors before joining the Building and Finance committees, where his business acumen proved invaluable during the Club’s transition to a new and larger facility.
With the Frieling Club Lounge, it is the couple’s wish that The Skating Club of Boston sustains and strengthens the goodwill and sense of community at the heart of the Club experience. As a central and welcoming gathering space of families and all skaters, the Frieling Club Lounge, in spirit and in purpose, is here to ensure that the Club continues to be a destination where good memories and lifelong friendships are created, sustained, and strengthened.
