Startup Profile: Who Are Ambl?

Ambl, the revolutionary new app that connects customers with the best venues and bars in an instant, has just launched in London. Working with over 300 leading brands and growing every week, Ambl is set to change the way people find and book restaurants, bars, and venues. Ranging from Bars to Michelin Stars!

What do Ambl do?

Ambl’s unique feature is its ability to broadcast customers’ needs to venues, allowing them to see nearby customers rather than just seeing limited availability online.

The app also enables venues to fill last-minute cancellations and no-shows, providing real-time availability. Ambl’s founders have built ‘the Uber of restaurants,’ and the app has already raised £2m after walking around the streets of London every day, signing up restaurants and bars to connect with nearby active diners.


How was Ambl founded?

The story behind Ambl’s creation is as unique as the app itself. Aaron Solomon, one of the co-founders, had the idea after facing the common problem of finding a table for a large group. Despite searching through various restaurant booking apps and websites, he couldn’t find a suitable option. That’s when he had a breakthrough idea: why not broadcast his need to nearby restaurants and allow them to see that a group of seven needed a table? From that moment on, Ambl was born.

In today’s society, everything from travel to shopping to delivery is available on-demand. Booking great venues should be no different. With Ambl, users can easily and quickly find the perfect spot for any occasion, whether it’s a last-minute booking, a corporate event, or a night out with friends. The app’s real-time availability feature makes it easy for venues to fill last-minute cancellations and no-shows, providing a seamless experience for both customers and businesses.
One of the high-profile investors and supporters of Ambl is Jon Spiteri, owner of Sessions Arts Club. Spiteri said, “I’ve been doing this for 40 years, and I’ve not been this enthused about something in a long, long time. For restaurants, it’s astonishingly simple. Elegant.”

How does it work?

Ambl’s pricing strategy is also attractive for venues, with the app taking just £1 per head for every booking made through the platform. “Even if we sent your restaurant just one £30-a-head booking a day of 4, we’d make you about 40 grand,” says Solomon. With the hospitality industry losing around £17.6 billion due to no-shows, Ambl’s solution to this problem is a game-changer.

In conclusion, Ambl is poised to revolutionise the way people book restaurants, bars, and venues. Its unique features, pricing strategy, and innovative approach to booking make it a must-have app for anyone looking for a night out on the town. As one of the founders put it, “It’s about solving that feeling when you’re out and you want to go elsewhere, but you’ve got no idea where.” With Ambl, that feeling will be a thing of the past.
