An exclusive, upscale multi-Meetup masquerade ball and charity fundraiser at La Pomme!
Event is free for you and your guests - just mention 'Meetup' at the door. No tickets needed.
If there is a waiting list and you want to attend - go ahead and RSVP. Waiting lists often clear out as members update their RSVPs.
$5 Sangria 7-8 PM. Fusion burlesque/belly dance performance around 9 PM. Drink specials all evening.
Upscale event: jackets required for the guys. This is not a formal ball - a dress-to-impress social.
Masks required - available for $5 at the door (exact change preferred - this is the 'fundraiser' part of the event). 100% of proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders for relief in Haiti. Come early for best mask selection. Contest for best custom mask!
This is the largest Manhattan masquerade Meetup ever. If you have never been to a masquerade social before, you are in for a treat!

About La Pomme
Citysearch Review: Fittingly, one of the Big Apple’s most debaucherous mega-clubs is called La Pomme--“the apple,” in French--and it manages to outdo many of its Flatiron District nightlife neighbors with its grandiose 3,500-square-foot interior, 100-foot video wall and whopping $750 table minimums. If you can get past the velvet ropes, you’ll find a sleek space decked out with 20-foot photo murals--depicting models chomping suggestively on apples, ‘natch--by celebrity photographer Fadil Berisha, along with edgy trompe l’oeil wallpaper featuring razor blades and brass knuckles.
Our parties are hosted by volunteers - everyone works hard to make them unique and fun. We do not make money from our events - any proceeds go to selected charities.
Hope You Can Join Us!
