With a global shift in how we want to spend our free time, more people are swapping a night on the town with an authentic experience at home, surrounded by friends and family. What if there was a platform that made staying home and entertaining easier? anynightIN is a one stop shop for everything you need to make your house gathering memorable, whether you are having a romantic dinner for two, celebrating a special occasion or just hanging out with your mates.
How does it work?
anynightIN is the brain child of Le Noir Group owner Mark Brimblecombe and connects food, beverage & entertainment (FB&E) professionals with consumers to deliver the ultimate night out, at home. The easy-to-use platform showcases talent from across the FB&E scene, listing qualifications, experience, availability and budget and gives the consumer the chance to browse, decide and book there and then.
In the Gig Economy, the flexibility of being your own boss, as well as choosing when and where you will work, has become the ultimate lifehack, this is the perfect solution for industry talent looking to work. For the consumer, the ease and convenience of being able to browse every possible service that you might need when planning the perfect stay-at-home gathering, and book in just a few clicks will dramatically change how we think about entertaining at home.
