Michael Bruno is the founder of Tastemakers Guide, Valley Rock Inn & Mountain Club, and 1stdibs.com the world’s leading online destination for art and design. Michael is recognized globally for changing the way high-end purchases are made by using the internet. 1stdibs now has operations in 18 countries.
Michael came up with the idea for Tastemakers Guide over a decade ago as he traveled the world building 1stdibs. He learned the difference between having a good and a great experience was simply gathering a short list of not-to-be-missed places from friends and influencers who were familiar with where he was going. Bruno says, “Of course it’s fun to explore and find new places on your own, but time is precious, so why have a bad meal or night’s sleep when you can have a great experience?”
Tastemakers Guide draws on the world’s leading tastemakers to share with you their experiences of where to, eat, stay, shop, see and do from their adventures around the world and their own backyards.
