why we're here
We took a massive hit during the pandemic. Offices went remote & socializing with co-workers & friends after work became impossible. That's why we created friendship club.
We built a community in New York City for people to have a thriving social life while connecting with real people and exploring the city. Genuine, authentic friendships + relationships through really fun experiences.
New York City is a beautiful melting pot of culture + diversity. So we created a safe place for people from all different backgrounds to feel welcome. Our niche? Kind people.
We won't tolerate any racism or prejudice of any kind. We embrace everyone's diversity and unique contributions to build a strong community.
Loneliness sucks. Come chill w/ us.
Sana Akhand, Chief FUCK-IT Officer
As a first generation American, I’ve always tried to check off all the "success boxes".
I got married at 25, had the 6 figure job by 30, a dog, double story condo in Brooklyn, BMW & everything I thought I wanted.
And I was absolutely fucking miserable.
So I quit my job and got rid of all my stuff & and booked a one way flight to Mexico. My husband and I hopped from city to city and traveled the world for a year.
The experience taught me to live a life that I want to live, not a life that I should live.
While traveling, I got lonely and wanted to connect with people so I went on FB groups to organize casual hangouts. People thanked me for these meetups.
Some found love & others found best friends for life.
I always wondered why it was so hard to make adult friendships in New York City.
That's why I built Friendship Club. To make it easier for us to make friendships along the way.
I'm on a mission to make the world a little less lonely.
