13 Social Clubs (Or Excuses) To Meet New Friends & Drink More Wine (Or Coffee)


We are all so attached to our smartphones – constantly isolating ourselves. For a couple hours a month, get together with friends and strangers to enjoy something other than electronics. Plus, its a great excuse to chat, catch up, gossip, drink wine, sip on coffee, just enjoy one another’s company. Some of these are actually clubs you can start or join existing ones! But a few of them I just thought up and thought “huh, that would be fun!” but I’m sure some degree of these clubs exist already. What other ideas am I missing?!

1 – Book Club

Classic. And everyone “reads” the book I’m sure.


2 – Knitting Club

A huge trend amongst the millennials! So is the next one.


3 – Crafting Club

Take a Pinterest idea and try to recreate it. Nailed It.


4 – Garden Club

Another classic woman’s club (excuse) for getting together every 1st Thursday of the month. Who knows, you may learn how to keep that ficus in your apartment alive!


5 – Movie Club

Enjoy flicks old and/or new!? Join or create a fun movie club! Don’t forget the popcorn 🙂


6 – Coffee Club

I’m sure this would be a hit around this time of year… PSL OMG! Haha

7 – Drinking Club

I narrowed this down into one category – think Wine Club, Beer Club (Brewers Club), Cocktail Club? etc…


8 – Cooking Club

Love cooking, hate cooking, can’t cook, need inspiration… whatever the motivation is – cook something.


9 – Photography Club

I’ve heard of this, a group of people go around their city and take pictures and trade tips and tricks with one another for the best photo. Be sure you have an #insta account.


10- Running Club

Eh… I’m not a super fan of this one. But Running is a huge thing – so why run alone!? Unless you want to be alone, then that’s ok.


11 – Board Game Club

Game night! Game nights seem to be more of an up-and-coming trend with the 20/30 year olds these days. When you were younger and forced to play at Family Nights – (you all know what I’m talking about) that wasn’t so appealing… But now you can have a cocktail 🙂


12 – Poker (Cards) Club

I’m not suggesting a gambling support group to fuel your addiction.. but simply friendly nights of cards!


13 – Recipe Club

Inspired by my friend: Everyone meets at a bar, brings a recipe to share, throws it in the middle of the table… and then drinks for a few hours. Pretty simple. The kicker is, every month when they meet, they all pool $10 or so, and at the end of the year they donate the money to a charity of their choice. Now that’s a great excuse to get together with your gals!


Stay Inspired!
