Gilt City Launches with Private Dinner

On October 21st, Gilt Groupe launched its newest website, Gilt City, with a private dinner for a select group of tastemakers at The Elysian. Gilt Groupe Founder Alexandra Wilkis Wilkinson, Vice President of Brand Relations Christian Leone and Gilt City’s Senior Director Matt Carroll (formerly of Modern Luxury), welcomed the group who enjoyed tantalizing cuisine like the Kabocha Squash Soup, Alaskan Halibut and Chocolate Pot de Crème dessert.

Gilt City members will have access to some of the city’s best restaurants, spas, museums, art galleries, entertainment venues, and service providers for great prices. Some of the opportunities are the chance to taste the cuisines of top restaurants (including private tastings with chefs), sneak-previews of upcoming cultural offerings, playing golf at private courses, and trying out the latest exercise classes and spa treatments. Each week the site will feature 8-10 different sale items and like Gilt Groupe, members to this website receive reminders via e-mail. "I am thrilled that our original concept of selling clothing on Gilt Groupe has expanded to the local services market with Gilt City. We look forward to working with Chicago area businesses in the near future to bring our members the best of Chicago each week," said Alexandra Wilkis Wilkinson. Not only is Gilt City a great way to explore the wonderful things your city has to offer, it’s also easy and quick in order to fit into your busy schedule.

I'm still unsure about Gilt City, I've been using Gilt for a while now but this new City section still hasn't really caught my attention with any sales. The idea is rock solid, I just hope the actual deals improve with time.

If anyone is interested in joining Gilt and checking out Gilt City you can use my invite link, it's faster than just signing up on Gilt since you don't have to wait for them to respond to your invite request:
