Cosmos Club Dress Code: jackets and collared shirts are required for gentlemen; similar attire for ladies (no jeans, shorts, flip flops or tennis shoes).

About the National Day of Catalonia: September 11th was selected for The Catalan National Day as it commemorates the 1714 Siege of Barcelona during the War of the Spanish Succession. Institutions and rights of the territories of the Crown of Aragon were abolished by the victorious Bourbon monarchy as punishment for their support to the claim of Habsburg Archduke Charles to the throne of Spain. In 1980, the restored Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia), as its first public act, proclaimed September 11th as La Diada, the Catalan National holiday. Dress Code Policy: jackets and collared shirts are required for gentlemen (no ties from Memorial Day until Labor Day); similar attire for ladies (no jeans, shorts, flip flops or tennis shoes).
