One sentence that sums up the Urbanologie user is ‘cash-rich, time-poor’ – a privileged individual that is much too busy to spend time researching – or – much less, asking where they ought to go (because doing that might give one too many options) – therefore, needing up-to-the-minute tips on new dine-outs, hotspots, and well, that place you must check out that no one knows of, yet.
What is it? It is essentially a luxury lifestyle global destination guide designed to keep members in the know with up-to-the-minute insider news and exclusive content on all of the latest restaurants, bars, pop-ups, clubs and hotels openings with exclusive access to the most happening and unmissable events; from the world of fashion, the arts, music and sport. In addition to London, Urbanologie has daily-updated, insider guides to New York, Los Angeles, Dubai, Miami, Ibiza and Mallorca. Next is Paris, Monaco and Hong Kong.
What began as a hobby of sending out newsletters to his influential friends and family, turned into the Urbanologie email newsletter that Hugo Campbell-Davys began sending out in 2012. Witnessing the exciting response, Hugo transformed the concept into a sort of a global members luxury/lifestyle community club, where members could expect to quickly get round-ups of the best venues to check out, even long before a critic could lay a word on it. One of the most well-connected men out there, Hugo – with investment from some founding members – launched the Urbanologie app, making it much easier for the user/member to access insider events/news on most major cities in the world – literally, in the palm of ones hand.
Most of its members include those in the finance, property and tech sectors but we have no doubt that even creatives might find it to be of a useful companion. The great thing about Urbanologie is really the man behind it. With a highly influential network of friends and acquaintances, he really is a man in the know – someone whose recommendations and finds, you can trust, which is why the app charges a membership fee of only £100 a year. As The Sunday Times has quotes “The snappy lifestyle guide…to know what’s hip and happening”
To get a first hand experience of the app, Urbanologie is giving new users a complimentary 3-month membership after registration, after which you can subscribe for an annual fee of £100.
