London nightlife goes digital

London nightlife goes digital

A newly launched app is looking to breathe a new lease of life into London's night time economy, which is worth £66bn a year to the UK and employs 1.3 million people.

Launching onto the London club scene, MyClubConnect has set out to become the ‘most accurate and comprehensive’ nightclub events listing available.

With the night tube soon to arrive in London and with nightclubs never in a more precarious position (The ALMR stated that the number of UK nightclubs have halved in a decade), the app is hoping to breathe a new lease of life into the sector.

The app allows users to search by ‘location’ anywhere in London to find a listing of all events within a 3km radius; this includes a ‘My Location’ feature which will identify the user’s current geolocation. It can also show events up to three months in advance so users can also plan ahead.

“The idea came from being fed up with spending more time on deciding where to party than on actually enjoying a night out!” said co-founder Nino Giambalvo. “People are fed up with trying to find event information and end up going to the same old place.

“With MyClubConnect, clubbers can go from wanting to go out to having a wealth of brilliant and accurate event options at their disposal within as little as 3-4 clicks!”

The app is flexible in allowing log-ins from Twitter, Facebook and Google+ whilst also providing the option to register with an email and password. A share feature allows users to share events and venues with friends across most social media channels.

Whilst currently delivering a comprehensive guide to London’s club scene, Nino has exciting plans for the future. He said: “We plan to roll out across the country to encompass Britain’s many vibrant cities, plus venues will be able to manage their own profiles via their own unique access. Social interaction will also feature but for now the details are top secret!’

“This app is the best for clubbing in London bar none (no pun intended) and is a must have for everyone who enjoys a big night out, especially those who wish to find somewhere new to go or are new to the city! Oh, and it’s FREE!”
