TNC is 100% Dutch. And 100% New York.
TNC is where Dutch culture meets the New York City experience.
TNC is more than a cozy outpost where Dutch people can enjoy a beer, a bitterbal and some old school “gezelligheid.” We’re a community for anyone who is Dutch, or Dutch at heart, who wants to enjoy Dutch culture in NYC.

Get ready to enjoy the city as only the Dutch can.
Our members are world travellers, adventure-seekers and people who just can’t get enough of everything Dutch. So we curate events and activities at the club and around the city where we can indulge our love of Dutch food and drink, art, artists, traditions, and forward-thinking ideas.

If you’re new to the city, we’ll help you feel at home. And, we’ll share tips and tricks about city life the guidebooks won’t tell you.

Why join TNC New York?

We’re here to serve the Dutch community (not to make a profit). We aim high.. We continuously  innovate our programs and have expanded your benefits. To keep it going, we need your help.

Starting in 2020, we’re making it easier for everyone to be a member by lowering the membership fee from $300 to $50. In return for making membership more accessible, all events will be members-only and ticketed to help us keep the programming strong, interesting and relevant. We’ve worked hard to continue to give you the best the Dutch have to offer, both in discounts, benefits and an amazing event line-up for the coming year. 

Here’s what you can do: Become a member today.. Come to more events, tell you friends about us, and post about our events on social media throughout the year.

Tell me that again? In 2020 the membership is lowered to $50 and a membership is necessary to buy tickets to all events.

The Basic Membership. What’s in it for me?
