While readers of Big Shot probably aren’t ones to book tables at nightclubs, lots of people do. So it’s no surprise that Boston-based Tabelist app — a startup that believes booking tables shouldn’t be something left for the rich — has announced that it has raised $1.5 million. Founded by Julian Jung with Twitter executive Wayne Chang in tow, the iOS and Android app also allows friends to split the bill with friends and pre-select liquor and champagne brands for bottle service.
Obligatory press release gush from Jung: “Tablelist opens up the bottle service market, connecting users directly with tables and providing details about minimum tabs and availability as far out as a week and as last-minute as the night of.”
Currently available in Boston, Las Vegas, New York City, and the Hamptons, the cash will allow for the company to expand into Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington DC and Miami within six months.
If all goes well in America, could club capitals like Ibiza, London and Berlin be next on the horizon for Tabelist? You can bet on it.
