What is Counterculture Club?

Counterculture Club is a global alcohol-free community based in Charlotte, NC that offers virtual and in-person events, membership and coaching for individuals who want to build authentic relationships and counter the mainstream idea that we need alcohol to have fun, fulfilling lives. 
  • Why did you create this group? 
    • We all arrived at an alcohol-free lifestyle for different reasons, but the common denominator was we wanted more authentic connection in our lives and a space where we didn't have to be the odd one out for not ordering a drink. Sometimes it can feel isolating not imbibing at an event, so we create more spaces where not drinking is the norm. 
  • What kinds of events does Counterculture Club offer?
    • We want to showcase that an alcohol-free life isn’t limited - if anything you can do MORE if you’re not drinking so the events we offer vary. In addition to our monthly re-occurring events for members such as our weekly share squares and book club, we host events for the community. Some of our past and upcoming events include virtual panels with sobriety experts, outdoor yoga, coffee meetups, virtual tarot card reading parties and more.
  • If you drink can you still join Counterculture Club and/or attend an event? 
    • Absolutely! Counterculture Club events and community are for everyonewhether you're sober, sober curious, a non-drinker for health/wellness reasons, just taking the night off from drinking or experimenting with what it's like to socialize without alcohol. We believe your reasons for not drinking are no one else's business but your own.
  • Why should I become a member?
    • You should become a member if you're looking to try new activities, learn more skills and build new relationships with like-minded people that don't revolve around alcohol. Our community supports each other through whatever curve balls come our way, we do activities together and lean on each other and learn from each other. 
  • Who can join?
    • At this time, our membership is only open to those who identify as women or non-binary folks, however, we regularly offer events, such as our weekly yoga classes, that are open to all.
