QUINTESSENTIALLY SPECIALISES IN EXTREME SERVICE,
FROM THE ELITE TO THE IMPOSSIBLE
QUINTESSENTIALLY LIFESTYLE WAS LAUNCHED IN SOHO, LONDON IN DECEMBER 2000 BY CO-FOUNDERS AARON SIMPSON, BEN ELLIOT AND PAUL DRUMMOND.
Quintessentially Lifestyle began life as a luxury concierge service (originally known as Quintessentially) available to each Member 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and on-hand to assist with any lifestyle requests.
From last minute restaurant reservations, holiday bookings and theatre and opera tickets, to access to clubs, parties and special events, Quintessentially Lifestyle quickly became the go-to service for any Londoner low on time but keen to enjoy the very best life had to offer.
Today, Quintessentially Lifestyle has expanded into over 60 cities around the world providing an unbeatable global lifestyle management service. From Buenos Aires to Beirut, New Delhi to New York, Moscow to Milan, and in destinations as diverse and far-flung as Maputo, Ljubljana, Istanbul, Jakarta and Seoul, Quintessentially Lifestyle's global fixers are on hand to provide the ultimate in insider, specialist and localised knowledge – plus a host of exclusive benefits, preferential rates, special offers, unique deals and the very best in service wherever you happen to be.
Members are kept up to date with what's hot and what's not through weekly newsletters in their cities, offering indispensable advice on the essential art and cultural events of the moment, invitations to charity evenings, gala balls, film premieres and exclusive parties.
Member requests have got bigger and better too, from the unusual and extravagant to the downright crazy. Quintessentially Lifestyle has closed the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a private climb and unique marriage proposal, arranged a party for 300 at the Pyramids in Egypt, created a romantic meal for two on an iceberg, and even built a replica 'bat cave' in a Member's home for one avid film fan.
