Editor’s note: There are more than 1 million apps available for download from Apple's App Store and a similar number of Android apps available on Google Play. Staff writer Brian Nordli weighs in on one of the applications he deems worthy of being the Sun’s App of the Week.
Phone App: Tablelist
Where can you find it: Apple’s “App Store”; Android’s “Google Play” store
What is it: Imagine walking into a nightclub on the Strip and finding a VIP table reserved just for you and your friends. Later that night, you receive a visit from an Oompa Loompa or a surprise guest dressed as a panda who plans to party with you all night long.
It’s an experience that sounds like the beginning of a “What happens in Vegas…” story, and it can all be planned on one app: Tablelist.
The app started in Boston, New York and Foxwoods, Conn., but it recently became available in Las Vegas.
It allows partygoers to reserve tables at the hottest clubs and pools on the Strip, from Marquee to Tao Beach. While most of the tables at such venues can run anywhere from $300 to $2,000, users can split the cost with other members in the group through the app.
Meanwhile, with each booking, users accrue points they can cash in to receive rewards and enhance their nightlife experience. Users can get anything from a private driver to a visit from the aforementioned Oompa Loompa. Really big spenders, who collect 100,000 points, can book a private jet to take three friends to a nightclub.
Tablelist allows users to book their ultimate version of the Vegas nightlife experience, all through a smartphone app.
