5. The Norwood Club
The newest of the private clubs is The Norwood Club, founded in 2007 with an indie and artistic vibe not represented by the older institutions. This club operates at a faster pace including a restaurant, three lounge bars (where famous DJs are spinning or string quartets are playing), a 45-seat screening room, an event space, a private dining room, and a walled garden. There are also easels set up for anyone who feels compelled to express themselves in painting. Location: 241 West 14th Street Membership: Although the annual membership fee is substantially less at $1,000, gaining that membership is all about who you are and who you know in the "creative-type" world. Some of the questions on the application are, "who would you most like to collaborate with?" and "what is your involvement with the creative arts?" [Photo via]
