BPB logoAt the height of the recession in 2009, e-commerce entrepreneur and former New York City nightlife promoter Ryan Alovis saw a niche that needed to be filled: a convenient, affordable service that could offer the Tri-State Area’s penny-pinching 23 to 30-year-old set VIP access to New York City’s hottest spots without the notorious hassle of dealing with venues directly. He founded, a subsidiary of Alovis’s holding company, ArkNet Media; today, the completely free party planning site is responsible for the majority of birthday parties in New York, and is announcing a new partnership with on-demand car service Uber NYC.

Alovis is known for personally courting his customers, and his partnership with Uber NYC will be the icing on the cake for many of them. The agreement will provide users an exclusive $20 new user promotion code to Uber NYC. In addition, the partnership will include a contest running April 3rd through April 10th called “An Uber Birthday,” offering a night out for 20 including a VIP table and bottle service at Windsor Gansevoort Park and $100 in Uber New York credits. will select one winner among Twitter users who tweet with the hashtag #UberBirthday.

Alovis stated, “As a former New York City nightlife promoter, I knew the ins and outs of the industry and saw how frustrating it was for average, hardworking young professionals to navigate the constantly changing club and bar scene, deal with venue managers working irregular hours, and fight with bouncers. With, I not only sought to be the first company to offer a streamlined and free process for party planning, but I also wanted to erase the idea that hosting a party at a hotspot was elite and unattainable.”

He added, “Partnering with Uber NYC was the logical next step in offering my clients a service that really completes the experience of a luxurious night out. In turn, I am able to offer Uber NYC phenomenal business via what I like to call ‘collective partying’ – guaranteeing, on average, 20 potential new customers per party for the more than 50 parties that books every weekend.”
