If you’re looking for easy access to a Las Vegas nightclub, chances are you have to know a guy who knows a guy or spend your afternoon hunting down a promoter.
Tech developers Petitioners, Inc. are hoping to put those days in the past with its new mobile app and website PartyPetition.
The app works as a nightlife calendar and reservation service that allows users to plan their party time in Las Vegas based on personalized offers from venues including Marquee in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Tao in the Venetian, Ghostbar in Palms, Hyde Bellagio and Pure in Caesars Palace.
Users can browse PartyPetition’s library of artists, events and venues (complete with table maps and photo galleries) to create a “petition” to clubs based on specified preferences such as date, group size, budget and special requests like bottle service.
The petitioned venues then create tailored offers or “bids” based on those preferences. Users choose the bid that suits them best, and the night’s planning is one and done.
Though the website is still beta, the PartyPetition app is available for free download in more than a dozen languages on iOS devices. Other device platforms are to come.
PartyPetition is currently available only for Las Vegas, although developers plan to expand to other cities.
