What we're about

The Portland Social Club is a group for making friends, networking and finding adventure in the Portland area! Our emphasis is on cultural, active, innovative experiences. Our gatherings span indoor and outdoor activities, daytime and nighttime events.

The Portland Social Club is not designed to be a singles group though we do have singles events from time to time. Both singles and couples should feel equally welcome. We are not full time organizers but will do our best to post at least a few events per month. We will also be giving back to the community by hosting periodic benefits for local welfare and charities.

Let's socialize through shared interests and new experiences.
