Gertie aims to build a community of young professionals in Chicago who are ready to engage with the city and each other in new ways. We believe that spending time around creativity and creatives can make a difference in people’s lives, but in a world that never stops it can be hard to find the time to connect and overwhelming to explore new spaces. Our aim is to make it easy. With one membership, we provide access to newsletters, one of a kind guidebooks and programming specifically for our members in partnership with Chicago’s most exciting institutions, artists and cultural movers & shakers – ones you know and ones you should get to know.


Convening Chicago’s culturally curious; Is that you? Through curated stories and unique experiences throughout Chicago — we are your friend of a friend, so you always know where to be on a Friday night.
