Men have long had a host of well-appointed, private clubs where they can gather, talk business, and socialize away from the women in their lives.

The latest entry in the field (which includes The Wing, The Coven, The Assembly, The Riveter and more) is Maison. Founded by fashion blogger, photo producer, and mom of two, Ashley Wu, this Upper East Side aerie is aimed at NYC’s cool mom community.

We asked Ashley about what inspired her to launch Maison, and some of the extra special details that members will get to enjoy. Click through for the full tour!
