The Society Miami is the third chapter of the Toronto based â€œCulture Clubâ€. Founded in 2006 by two college grads Amanda Blakely and Ashleigh Dempster, who admit to being bored one night and wanted to do something different than the typical night out. “If you had $60 in your bank account, you were probably going to go out to the bar with your friends. You probably weren’t going to buy a ballet ticket; at least most people weren’t,” she said. “So we decided relevant culture shouldn’t be about how much money you have.”
A year after their successful launch of their distinguished culture club in Toronto, the society opened a new chapter in New York. Last year the society brought its club to Miami, and has been a success ever since. Events in Miami have ranged from a photo exhibit with a fashion blogger to fencing lessons at well renowned fashion designers home. Membership will run you $125 a year, and even though the club already has a total of 4,000 members, getting in is no easy task. Membership is granted after a referral from two existing members are performed.
