Personally I had never heard of Quintessentially before but they claim to be the “world’s leading private members’ club and concierge service.” They just announced the release of their free BlackBerry city guide app that gives you access to their recommended hot spots from your device. They already have an iPhone version that is doing pretty well so I guess they are hoping for similar success on the BlackBerry platform. The app gives you access to their recommended openings, new venues, and must see locations.
