Your City Seen: First Video Only Peer-to-Peer Review and Experience Platform Launches in London
The world’s first video only, peer-to-peer review platform Hollabox has launched in London, offering a transparent look inside the city’s most entertaining venues and experiences.
Hollabox enables anyone to film and upload videos of their experiences at restaurants, bars, cafes, markets and venues across the UK’s capital. Designed to offer an honest look inside a venue, Hollabox is a revolutionary review platform that allows people to make informed decisions through the eyes of fellow Londoners about where to eat, drink and play amongst the city’s coolest venues and experiences.
Partnered with Uber, OpenTable and Bookatable, Hollabox allows users to book directly through the app, get directions, or order an Uber to any venue featured on the platform.
Users can search by category, name, tag or what is trending, to view real, user-generated, unfiltered videos of experiences and venues throughout London and create “Collections” of stories to save for later such as “Weekend plans”, “Must-try restaurants” or “Bucket List”.
Gaining momentum, Hollabox has received over 4,000 individual video stories reviewing more than 500 venues and experiences in and around the city.
Adam Beveridge, CEO and Co-Founder of Hollabox says: “At Hollabox we believe in making the most out of life through experiences. In London, you’re constantly hearing about new restaurant and bar openings, unique events or recently launched pop-ups. With so many new places to try, not everyone has the time to research each one. We wanted to create a platform that uses video as the quickest, most transparent and entertaining way to let people share their experiences and help each other find out about where to visit in London by providing a glimpse into the city’s best venues.”
