What we do

Grouper sets up drinks between 2 groups of friends: 3 and 3.

To plan a Grouper, you need to download our iPhone app. To join one, you just need a friend with the iPhone app to invite you. Currently, we’re live in New York City and invite-only, but we will be rolling out the new app to our other US cities soon.


Our mission is to actually bring people together; to make real connections; to experience new adventures; to use technology to live in the moment, not escape it. Because getting together with great people is what makes life worth living. And we make it happen.

Our Values

These are the truths we live by for our team, our products, and our members.

  • Make it happen. Because that’s the only part that really matters.

  • Be Real. In person. Up front. Laid back. Off the couch. Face to face, not phone to phone.

  • 10X Quality. Quality People. Quality Products. Quality Time. And to us, Quality means ten times better.

  • Better Together. We bring great people together to do great things and to have absurd amounts of fun doing it.

  • Put a dent in the Universe. Leave your mark. Do something incredible. Write an unforgettable story. Is this something you’ll tell your grandkids about one day? If not, why are you wasting your precious time?


Grouper started in the summer of 2011 in New York City. Since then, our members have shared over half a million drinks and countless stories. We’re just getting started on our mission to bring people together offline, which the world needs now more than ever.


We’re looking for the world’s best engineers, designers, and problem solvers to join our mission. If you share our values and our vision, please reach out to: jobs@joingrouper.com. At the moment we’re especially looking for:

  • iOS Engineers

  • Mobile Engineers

  • Ruby Engineers


If you’re a journalist looking to get in touch, please email press@joingrouper.com. Given the experiential nature of our product, we strongly encourage you go on a Grouper as a regular user before writing about it.
