Welcome to the Downtown Lions Club

The Downtown Nashville LIONS Club is one of the oldest and most distinguished clubs in the country being founded on February 12, 1920. A review of the previous membership will show some of the most respected men and women in the history of Nashville, TN.

The club meets for lunch from 12 to 1 at the Coco's Italian Kitchen on 51st North off of Charlotte Ave. in west Nashville on the 2nd and 4th Mondays.

The Downtown Nashville Lions Club has named their meeting room, the "John G. Justice Meeting Room" in memory of past District Governor & International Director John G. Justice. The club was founded in 1920 and John held the highest office of any member in the Nashville Downtown Club.

John died on September 7th, 2014 at the age of 88. We dedicated the flag at his memorial service on September 13th, which would have been his 89th birthday.
