Making friends and establishing connections after moving to a big city like Los Angeles can seem daunting. Joining a social club can help you make friends and introduce you to like-minded individuals. Finding the club where you feel you fit in can be difficult because there are many to choose from. While you can spend a lot of time searching online, visiting the club and talking with guests will determine which club is right for you.

To help narrow down which clubs are worth the visit, we compiled a list of the top nine social clubs in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area.

Beverly Hills Women’s Club

The Beverly Hills Women’s Club was established to explore intellectual ideas, the arts, literature, and philanthropic goals. They aim to provide programs that enrich their members and community.

Regular events include luncheons, group yoga, a book club, and more. They also hold concerts, theater productions, workshops, and classes throughout the year. The clubhouse, located in the heart of Beverly Hills real estate, was built in 1925 by Gable & Wyant architects and seats 100 people with space available to rent for private parties.
