Downtown Athletic Club of Eugene


WHO WE ARE


The Downtown Athletic Club of Eugene opened its doors in 1985. Local and family owned, the DAC is one of Eugene's finest workout, dining and event facility. Built in the old Ax Billy Department store building in Downtown Eugene, the athletic club houses of 30,000 square feet of usable gym space. From a full-sized basketball gym to multiple studios, the DAC holds just about everything you need to meet your fitness goals. One of the unique features about the DAC is The Venue and The Ax Billy Restaurant located on the 3rd floor of the building. While the gym takes up the first few floors, the third floor is dedicated to great food, fantastic wine and guaranteed good times. The Ax Billy Restaurant is Downtown Eugene's only third-story dining experience, offering a formal dining room, a sports bar to watch your favorite game and a seasonal outdoor deck to enjoy the sights and sounds of Downtown Eugene. The Ax Billy restaurant serves up delicious, locally sourced food that is sure to make your mouth water. (Peek our menu here).


The Venue itself brings a new level of urban elegance to Downtown Eugene. Our indoor spaces can host anything from an intimate gathering to all-out party for 300+ guests. With classic architectural style, natural light in all our spaces and mouth-watering catering straight from the Ax Billy kitchen, our venue seeks to exceed your expectations again and again.
