A Hellfire Club, by its very nature, would be a secret society. But not all secret societies are Hellfire Clubs!

The original ( and real ) Hellfire Club was a secret society for gentlemen in England in the 1700's. The club had nothing to do with magic, but was a place where men could go to take part in activities thought immoral.

Other versions of the Hellfire Club, such as the one in the X-Men novels are totally works of fiction and do not exist in the real world.

A "secret society" is by definition "an organization whose members are sworn to secrecy about its activities" That would include groups like the Masons, wiccan Covens, magical lodges, some college fraternities and sororities, etc.
