BOSTON, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Tablelist, the leader in instant VIP table reservations, announced that it is the first nightlife category partner to join the Yelp Platform, enabling the millions of people that use Yelp to seamlessly book nightclub tables and bottle service through the Yelp site or mobile app.
Yelp is already empowering its users to order delivery, make reservations at restaurants, book spa and hotel appointments, and more, and its latest integration with Tablelist will bring yet another exciting, easy-to-book experience to Yelp Platform.
"The next year will be transformative for Tablelist, the #1 nightlife service, and with Yelp, the #1 venue recommendation service, working together — this just shows the incredible value that Tablelist provides" said Wayne Chang, Head of Product and Growth Strategy at Twitter.
Tablelist members have always used Yelp as a resource in deciding which nightclubs and lounges to visit, and Tablelist Founder and CEO Julian Jung expects an overwhelmingly positive response as the partnership goes live.
"Our partnership with Yelp will open up a world of possibilities to connect people searching for unique nightlife experiences at the best venues, instantly...We're honored to be the first company in this vertical on the Yelp Platform. It's a big leap towards our goal of simplifying the nightlife booking experience for all," said Jung.
The booking process will be as simple on Yelp as it is on Tablelist's mobile and web apps. Users who search for nightclubs and lounges on Yelp will see a "Book VIP Table" button on supported venue pages. Once they click, the user will be taken to a booking page within Yelp, where they can choose their table location, select their bottles of choice, and conveniently pre-pay. Members will be able to book at select venues in Boston first, with other Tablelist cities such as NYC, Las Vegas and San Francisco following close behind.
Boston-based Tablelist is backed by influential investors and advisors, including Rande Gerber of Gerber Spirits.
"This partnership between Yelp and Tablelist is a monumental step towards the future of nightlife on a national and international scale," said Gerber.
