Private Clubs

I am wondering if anyone here is a member of any private clubs in NYC and what their thoughts are on becoming a member. I understand that various places have different requirements and dues to join and that is not what I am after. My interest is the ultimate benefit and overall is it worth paying dues for what the club has to offer? What clubs are considered more prestigious than others and why? The obvious benefit is networking and I am trying to see if anyone has personal experiences they can share. The reason I am asking is that I have a chance to join the New York Athletic Club and trying to see if it is worth the cost. Any input is appreciated.

joke?

I belong to a membership only private club too (I pay about $35 per year)—-Sams.

No, not a joke. Why would it be one?

I belong to the New York Sports Club. They give me the wink and the gun every time I swipe my membership ID.

I just signed up for Duane Reade’s flex rewards. I feel so special every time I bust out my key chain to have them scan my card.

I joined the playaz club with rappin 4 tay… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbm4SzdZI9g

By the way just in case you never heard
Rappin 4-Tay I’m on the smooth tip
Never trippin off them suckas poppin off at the lip
I pop the top off the drank and we can roll some dank bro
Leave the gat at the house bring some dominoes
Take off your shoes relax and get a body rub
And shoot your mackin at these women at the playaz club

note: just because it doesn't make sense doesn't mean that it's not merry.

You guys are ballin. I just got my Jewel’s preferred card and I am working my way up to Costco.

would love to join if this is a swinger club or something…

I used to belong to the Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting club, but my wife found it out and I had to quit. Hope they’re not coming after me.

I’m in the “Members Only” club. Very elite – got a jacket to prove it.

It’s about the tie, not the jacket.

I have been to a few events. They give you a password and a location. It’s pretty good but drinks are expensive as crap. Girls are super hot.

Not sure about NY athletic club but found Equinox was great for services and locations.

Also, the Harvard club of NYC is supposed to be really good. You just have to go to Harvard first…

Merely go to Harvard, or graduate from Harvard?

Private club membership is $35 per year! Seriously? 

My friend pays 3.5k (sterling) for a private members club only for ox-cam grads. 

The difference!

I have a feeling it is case dependent. I can’t imagine them saying, for instance, “I’m sorry Mr. Gates, but you do not have the credentials to dine here”.

Well … clearly there’d be an exception if you own Harvard.

Although not a Crimson man myself, I can confirm that it is indeed really good.
