A Brief History
of Black Tie Club International
Black Tie Club
International formed in Toronto, Canada in 1990.
The Club was founded
to host events where members can meet new people who share our common outlook, to have fun and
to enjoy one another's company in a Black Tie setting.
The Club's Founder has
always believed that, no matter what you may look like, when you put on a tux
you look adorable! Our dinners are Black Tie Only — with no exceptions.
across North America
Black Tie Club started as
an 18-member local group in Toronto. Soon some friends heard about the group
and wanted to start a chapter in their own area and be linked to the Toronto
group. We now have more than 900 members in 21 local chapters across North
America (see map below) plus an international chapter.
Black Tie Club chapter has at least two cocktail parties and dinners each year,
but many chapters have four or more dinners and other more casual events for their members
each year. All members are sent invitations to their own chapter's cocktail
parties and dinners. When members are traveling in any area where another
chapter is hosting a dinner, the visiting member can contact the local chapter
to enquire whether there is room for them to attend.
Black Tie Club International
invites the members of all of its local chapters to attend
one club-wide annual event
each year. The location and theme for this special annual event changes from
year to year. These four-day affairs are thoroughly enjoyed by all the members
who attend. Black Tie Club International also occasionally organizes trips for groups of club
members to world-wide destinations.
The Black Tie Club International Magazine
Black Tie Club
International produces a
color magazine with articles about local chapter dinners, news
items, a listing of upcoming dinners and other chapter events and many other interesting
