CityGuru membership gives you access to experiences you never knew existed. Secret dining menus, special shopping hours, travel perks, and VIP invites to parties where you get to rub elbows with local chefs, celebrities and athletes. Our members elevate their every day and night lives – date nights, business dinners, socializing, shopping, and spa-ing.
CityGuru was created to elevate every day experiences. How? We partner with local restaurants, bars, retailers, and salons to create a ‘menu’ of amazing experiences that can’t be found anywhere else. By joining CityGuru, you can choose from these experiences as often as you like, and know that new experiences, including special access to stores, salon perks, dining exclusives, and VIP invites to parties and events will are continually being added. If all of this sounds like a dream come true, then CityGuru is for you.
CityGuru membership is $50/month. This secures your access to everything we offer now + everything we plan to roll out. In addition to having access to exclusive experiences, we’ll offer perks like discounts at top retailers, valet, upgrades, dessert on the house and preferred pricing at salons, giving CityGuru members access to priceless experiences and opportunities. For a limited time we are able to offer our $50 charter member rate, discounted from $200 (discount expires August 2014)
We help our members turn everyday events into incredible experiences and lasting memories. We do all of the hard work to curate, coordinate and secure these experiences. You simply choose the experience you desire and show up to the red carpet we’ve rolled out for you.
Below are just a few of the exclusive experiences we’ve created for our members.
Ready to take date night to the next level? CityGuru membership offers you unbelievable and exclusive date night options. Last Valentine’s Day, three CityGuru couples enjoyed private access to Il Corvo Italian restaurant for an intimate pasta-making class led by the chef, and a 5-course meal with wine pairings.
Cinco de Mayo doesn’t have to be about Tex Mex and tequila shots. At least, not if you are a CityGuru member. This year, our members enjoyed a private dining experience with the chefs at Cantinetta, featuring a 5 course authentic Mexican dinner with off-menu items, specialty cocktails and sangria.
Enjoy VIP events at iconic locations. A CityGuru-hosted VIP roundtable event at the Space Needle brought members together to mix and mingle and discuss all things Seattle with restaurateurs and food writers – all while savoring dishes from a menu that rivaled the area’s most high-end restaurants.
CityGuru members even get better treatments at local spas and salons with custom-made facials, complimentary services and relaxing rewards.
After signing up for a CityGuru membership, start browsing our list of experiences and choose as many as you like. We’ll send you a confirmation for each booking, and then you sit back, relax and get ready for the time of your life. We take care of everything so you can just show up and enjoy.

I wanted to plan something for Valentine’s Day that was intimate and not something you could find every day. With CityGuru, I found exactly what I was looking for – a small group dining experience at Il Corvo, where CityGuru delivered on that rare balance of cultivating a group atmosphere while making it feel like me and my date were the only ones there. It was an incredible experience!

CityGuru has transformed the way I think about not only food and wine, but about experiencing life. Memories from CityGuru events immediately jump to top of mind when someone asks, “What is your favorite restaurant?”, “Where should we go for a special evening out?” or “What is your favorite meal, ever?” That is what CityGuru has done for me.
CityGuru is THE source for amazing opportunities and for scoring the ultimate hook up! These are experiences you just don’t have every day!

There is something special about a unique food experience, which is what CityGuru does really well. I appreciate how creatively the food was prepared at the event I attended.

I’ve met interesting and stylish people, and I’ve had an opportunity to peek behind the curtain so to speak at some of Seattle’s finest restaurants and venue spaces. I would have not had the opportunity to do so were I not a CityGuru member.
