The 7 Best NYC 'Young Members' Clubs For Meeting An Eligible Bachelor


New York Public Library Lions

The New York social season is already in full swing, but it's never too late to join one of the Young Members circles.

Besides being able to fill up your social calendar with annual bashes like last week's Apollo Circle Benefit, the main reason young aspiring socialites and arts patrons join these societies is to mingle with the city's most well-heeled bachelors.

Whether you're into the art aficionados or bow-tie clad socialites, we've got you covered. We've rounded up a list of top organizations you can join to find the right type of guy for you this winter!

Met Young Members

Ages: 21-35

Membership fee: $70/year and up

Boys: The MET young members circle is your best bet for finding the largest selection of boys. The membership fees range from $70 to $20,000, so you'll have plenty of boys from all different tax brackets. As it is one of the more inclusive junior philanthropy circles in the city, you should expect to find down-to-earth members with full-time jobs.

The perks of this membership (and the reason many members choose to join), is the Young Members Party. This annual bash is known for being one of the rowdiest parties, where members come together for a night of drunken debauchery. Most boys will show up in after-work attire (some even in jeans), and it's a great way to meet single boys and get a good feel of the art patron world.

Met Apollo Circle

Ages: 21-39

Membership fee: $1,000/year

Boy: As one of the more prestigious committees in the Young Members circles, you're going to find the NYC bachelors who are considered the cream of the crop in the Apollo Circle. This one tops our list as their giant fete is tonight and well, why not?

In addition to a number of invitations to private collection viewings, gallery talks, evening receptions, and curatorial tours, you get discounted tickets to the Apollo Circle Benefit Dance and reservations in the exclusive Trustees Dining Room. If you're looking to attend some of the most important events on every junior social's calendar, this is the circle for you. Often referred to as the Upper East Side matchmaking club, expect to see bow tie clad boys being dropped off in a fleet of black Escalades and town cars.

The Whitney Contemporaries

Ages: 21-40

Membership fee: $500/year

Boys: Forget the opening cocktail receptions or gallery walks around the city, this membership guarantees you an invite to one of the best parties of the season. Their annual art party brings together artists, fashion designers, and other celebs in support of the museum's Independent Art Programs.

Past guests included Bradley Cooper, Emma Roberts, Mariah Carey, Kate Bosworth, and Olivier Theyskens. The Whitney Contemporaries crowd is definitely one of the circles with the most clout, which should give you an idea of how trendy the boys will be.
