More On The Modern Love Club

New York City's premier cool high end boutique matchmaking agency was established in 2007.

A pioneer amongst matchmaking agencies, in breaking away from the outdated idea that matchmaking is only for millionaires.

The Modern Love Club is one of the first, and select few agencies to successfully take on men and women, straight, queer, young, and the young at heart as paid clients. We only take on people we feel we can help, and our successs in the quality of our collaborations not the quantity.

Our specialty is not single people who cannot meet great people on their own, but shouldn’t. Our clients are freed to go out in the world and do the amazing things they are good at, while feeling confident that there is a team of experts working on their most important search.

The Modern Love Club has been featured in Elle, Vogue, Nylon, Vice as well as multiple film and television credits. Please check out our Press section for more details!

Our offices are Union Square adjacent and open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5pm. The address is 89 5th avenue #601 New York, NY 10003. Looking forward to meeting you!
