Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get with my Tasting Collective membership?
Membership provides access to all of our events, as well as our members-only perks concierge, in all of our cities (currently Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco). Members are able to bring guests to our events, however, only members are able to purchase tickets to events and guests cannot attend events unaccompanied by a member.
What is my membership card used for?
To access your concierge perks at partner restaurants, you will need to present your membership card as proof of membership upon arrival at the restaurant. If you forget your membership card, you can also show your digital card on your phone as proof of membership. Your digital card is accessible by clicking on your name in the top right corner of our website when you’re logged in to your account.
How much does membership cost?
Membership is an annual fee of $165.
How does the membership fee work?
The membership fee is billed annually. Your first year’s membership fee is billed upon registration, and will automatically renew one year from the date of your registration. Your credit card on file with your membership will be billed the cost of membership renewal, and you may securely update your billing information at any time via your online profile.
What happens after I purchase a membership?
Your membership will be activated immediately after sign-up. Upon activation, you will be able to buy tickets to any of our upcoming events and access all of our member perks. Your membership card will be mailed to you in 4-6 weeks from the date of your sign-up.
What is your membership refund policy?
Membership dues are non-refundable.
Can I share a membership with my significant other or friends?
No, each membership can only be tied to one individual. Only members are able to purchase tickets to our events and access our member perks. Members are always able to purchase up to 3 guest tickets to each event. However, guest tickets are $25 more than member tickets, and guests cannot attend our events unaccompanied by a member.
