Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is The Third Place?
The Third Place is a term coined by sociologist Ray Oldenburg and refers to places where people spend time between home ('first' place) and work ('second' place). It is a place where we exchange ideas, have a good time, and build relationships.
2. How often are the events?
We have weekly happy hours, monthly picnics, impromptu karaoke, brunches + more!
3. What are the events like?
We encourage you to loosen up & show up for a fun time. No business cards, no pitching! Drinks + conversations are both always flowing.
4. How much does membership cost?
We believe a community should be accessible to all. So we created a no-cost app for New Yorkers to be part of our community. We make money from brands- they sponsor our events so members get freebies or discounts along with a free membership. It's a win-win!
5. When will my invite request be accepted?
If approved, you'll be accepted within 24 hours.
6. Can I cancel my membership?
Yes! You can cancel any time.
7. Why do I need Jet Black Social Club in my life?
Glad you asked! It's easy to prioritize your work life so much that you lose yourself as a unique person. We encourage a work/life balance and want to make sure you feel heard & seen as you, not as your job title.
8. Can I join if I'm not a New Yorker?
Sorry! All of our events are in Manhattan, so if you're not a New Yorker, you won't get much value here.
