This is where you'll find the LadyOfAdventure, AdventurerArchaeologist, GreatWhiteHunter and GentlemanAdventurer all hanging out when they aren't out doing dangerous things. There's probably a bar, a roaring fireplace, and lots of easy chairs for people to sit around in. Expect animal heads and African masks hanging on the walls in terms of decor, as well as lots of globes and maps. (Possibly a library full of them.) Often the site of a FramingStory, with one person sharing stories about his latest adventure and the others listening. Especially common in works set in the Victorian or Edwardian eras or a SteamPunk universe, but they can be found elsewhere.

* The Explorers Society in ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}''. They descend from a Roman society of monster-hunters, and since the Reckoning, are starting to dust off the old mantle again... much to the distaste of the Agency and the Texas Rangers, who both consider the Explorers Society to be half-baked bumblers who are far too open about the monstrous nature of their quarry.
* The Horatio Club in {{TabletopGame/GURPS}} ''Time Travel''.
* The Legends' and Heroes' Guilds in ''VideoGame/RuneScape''.
* TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms has "Society of Stalwart Adventurers", a club for adventurers and wannabe adventurers in Suzail (Cormyr).

* The "Super Adventure Club" in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' is visually based on the Disney club, although it's actually an organisation of child molesters (and a thinly veiled strawman of the ChurchOfHappyology). They do point that there is an "Adventure Club", but emphasizes that they are The "'''Super''' Adventure Club".

Originally used by adventurers and explorers, it later became home to the city's rich and affluent bluebloods. That would explain why on earth would the club had reconstructed a {{Mayincatec}} temple, right down to re-poisoning the darts in the traps... at least in part. Remember that is a [[CrapsackWorld Gotham City]] club.
* The ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shot "Quacker Tracker" featured WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck being offered a lifetime membership to a club if he can catch the elusive WesternAnimation/SpeedyGonzales.
