Revel is a membership-based community where women over 50 gather. At intimate conversation groups, or expert-led talks, or lighthearted events just for fun, members build meaningful connections with each other, which in turn strengthens our collective. We believe that decades of life experience cultivates wisdom and wit, which should be celebrated and shared.
We are strong, capable, sophisticated, curious, young-at-heart, and resilient. Revel is a space where we support each other and are fully seen for who we are.
Revel was founded in August 2019 by Lisa and Alexa, two women in their mid-thirties whose vision, quite literally, spans beyond their years. The very first Revel event was a conversation over coffee hosted by a member named Karin in another member’s beautiful backyard garden in Oakland, CA. Today, there are over 4,000 Revel members all across the country - and we are growing quickly! We’re currently welcoming our first 10,000 inaugural members at no cost.

Our community is made up of a diverse group of women: single and partnered, working and retired, kids and no kids, new to their area or have lived there for decades. We’re each growing in different ways: engaging in new interests, reinventing our work, or simply meeting new friends. Our differences create a unique and vibrant community.OUR COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
We are forming real connections, with real women, in the real world.
We all have something worth sharing and are each worthy of being heard.
Life is short! We are here to laugh and have fun.
Thanks to Revel's mutually supportive community, my life is undergoing some major happy changes that include: making wonderful new friends, gaining more confidence in who I am and what I have to contribute to the world, starting a business with a fellow Reveler, and launching a podcast. Revel, I love you!
Revel has been a very welcoming and inspiring community for me! Besides meeting so many incredible and interesting women, I also really enjoy the fun events as well as the educational ones, be it about health, investments, the gig economy, travel, or art! I am grateful to Revel for providing this platform to develop meaningful friendships, as well as all the learnings and entertainment it provides!
I founded the San Diego Chapter of the former Meetup Group "Finding Female Friends Past 50." I have brought our chapter to Revel and could not be more thrilled by the quality of the women, the breadth and depth of activities, seminars and workshops and the easy to use, private platform. This is a diverse and inclusive community; a place to find your tribe and to expand your horizons. If you can dream it you can find like minded women to join you here on Revel!
