Finally a concierge service that tries to fulfill all of its members simplest requests in real-time… Balloons with Drake’s face on them, anyone?! Grant Margolin, Vice President of Marketing and Brand Development for the concierge service Magnises, references Drake balloons as the most challenging request to date, but not enough so that it couldn’t be done!
With a year under its belt and over 7,000 members on board, Magnises is basking in its success after launching its networking platform in New York last March. The team’s decision to expand to the District was influenced by the undeniable demographics that show a burgeoning millennial market in DC. Margolin also cites the high energy and vibrancy that Washingtonians have to offer as a key factor. He sees Magnises as the perfect way for young DC professionals with common interests to connect.
Cue the Magnises NOW launch party last Thursday night at the Embassy Row Hotel’s rooftop off of Dupont Circle where guests gathered to sip on Grey Goose cocktails, bounce to DJ beats and celebrate the launch of Magnises’ new app-based concierge service.
Attendees were encouraged to download a free seven day trial of the on-demand concierge that can recommend good restaurants, nightlife and, most importantly, fulfill all of your wildest requests (see above). The membership price of $250 a year also includes free access to the Embassy Row Hotel’s rooftop pool and fitness center making the launch party an enticing preview.
Upon acceptance into the exclusive club, members receive a black metal personalized membership card (not to be confused with the American Express Centurion Card) that can connect with a credit or debit card and be used for purchases. Other perks include members-only events and dinners like a recent house party where Ja Rule made an appearance. Enough said.
