About Us

lt-blue-sealTaeste (The Alternative Entertainment Source to The Establishment) is the source for commercial-free, urban culture with flavor.  We are the home for old school, underground, progressive, and alternative urban culture that is ignored by mainstream media.

Taeste provides a platform that address all facets of progressive urban culture; enabling emcees, deejays, vocalists, musicians, artists, photographers, poets, and other urban expressionists to share their artistry with an audience that appreciates creativity.

Any music, event, artist, or other "Hot Spot" listing that is stamped with our "Seal of Distinction" has been "Taeste Tested" (reviewed and recommended) by our Taestemaker members, and is considered certifiably hot.

We delve deep into major cities across the U.S. and provide our members with a convenient, one-stop source for nightlife and entertainment options that go beyond a visit to the typical nightclub.

Hot Spots to Visit

We provide our members with a comprehensive entertainment and leisure guide that lists nightlife, entertainment, recreation, and all other destinations and businesses that interest mature urban consumers with acquired Taestes.

Our members prefer to frequent establishments that attract other mature, forward-thinking urban consumers, and refer to our directory because the "Hot Spots" are recommended and reviewed by their peers.

Hot Spots are continually added to our guide by both Taeste and our Taestmaker members.  Our Taestemaker members have the option to rate and review each listing and voice their opinion and experiences.  Listings with the most favorable reviews earn our "Taeste Tested" seal of distinction, and are recognized as a bonafide Hot Spot.

Some of the Hot Spots listed in our directory include nightclubs, lounges, bars, restaurants, comedy clubs, museums, festivals, boutiques & shops, spas, and professional services. Any Business that may be of interest to our community may be added to our directory for FREE.
