Welcome to InsideHook

Mission Statement
We believe that the single most important thing in life is being insatiably interested in the world around you. In the cultural conversations of the day. In the ever-evolving fields of health and wellness. And in making the very most of your precious free time.

We also believe that maintaining this keen interest is what in turn makes a person interesting. It’s what makes other people want to be around you — not just because you scored the most sought-after new bourbon or because you know the coolest new band, but because that openness to learning and understanding new things is contagious. 

But as time goes by and pressure builds at work or family obligations begin to pop up, it is very, very easy to let that once-insatiable interest fade. To listen to the same old records, wear the same old clothes, drink the same old cocktails — and in the process become set in your ways, unwilling to challenge yourself to see things differently or understand fresh perspectives.

We don’t want that for you. 

InsideHook is your expert-built guide to the things that matter most for anyone looking to nurture a meaningful, ongoing connection to the worlds of culture, wellness and leisure. 

Here’s What We Do…
We take you around the world to the best travel destinations and tell you exactly what to do while you’re there. We put you behind the wheel of the newest cars. We take you inside the studios of designers for insight into the season’s trends and styles. We bring you along with us to the gym or wherever we need to be to experiment with the latest workouts. And, of course, we invite you to sit with us at the bar for a drink and some lively conversation about hot-button topics in culture and entertainment. Life is about experiences, and we promise to have as many of them as possible and then share them with you.

Here’s How We Do It…
With a team of editors, writers and contributors spread across the globe, InsideHook features both short, digestible takes on the most relevant topics of the day, as well as longer reads that give you a deep look at the various facets of culture, wellness and leisure. While we aim to expand your mind and your horizons, we are also dedicated to more practical pursuits. Looking for help outfitting your life with all the best gear, gadgets and apparel? Our Goods section features product roundups and reviews based on real-life, hands-on testing, plus up-to-the-minute coverage of the best deals on the Internet, whether you’re into outdoor gear, watches, tech, style or cooking.
