Hygge NYC

low-key gatherings for the socially curious

Hygge ("hue-guh"): a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being


What are Hygge Gatherings?

If you haven't been to one before, think of it as a casual gathering to make new friends, discuss fun projects you're eager to work on, dive into deep, thoughtful discussions, and meet people who can help make NYC feel like a smaller, closer-knit community. 

Hygge NYC is modeled after renaissance-style salon gatherings.

Each gathering is an open invitation to the creatives, changemakers, technologists, nomads, entrepreneurs, and other kindhearted, openminded, delightful people you think we should all meet.


We'll have dinner, talk passions and projects, and meet those who can help. To make conversations with strangers easier and more fruitful, keep an eye out for our hand-written 'questions to spark authenticity' sprinkled on sticky notes across the tables.


The force behind this event is passion, not business.

We're here to make friends, not contacts.

We believe everyone can teach us something.

We are gathering to help one another do the most possible good with our projects, adventures, and connections.

This is not a startup or networking meetup.

It's an informal get-together of people seeking meaningful conversation and purpose-filled action in their lives.

We hope to help you find it here.
