Nov. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- New Startup Sets up Party Hosts with Hand-Picked Venues Best Suited for their Celebrations- Including Exclusive Deals for the Complete Party Package

New York, NY
 – Meet VenueTap ( ( (, a customized venue matchmaking site launches in New York City today, combining the ease and efficiency of the web with the personal touch of a talented Venuologist.  Whether hosting a bridal shower, planning a corporate event or throwing a birthday bash, VenueTap seamlessly matches users at no fee, with hand-picked venues and exclusive party packages. Featuring a proprietary and objective rating system, a customized search engine and personal introductions to selected venue managers, VenueTap brings clarity and confidence to the daunting task of finding and booking the ideal venue for any given occasion.  In order to guarantee a memorable celebration– minus the hassle, users can rely on VenueTap to only keep meticulously reviewed, high quality venues on tap.

VenueTap was co-founded by two longtime friends and venue veterans, Mike Russell and Dan Rieger.  Over the past seven years, they’ve mastered the venue planning industry offline, coordinating thousands of events throughout NYC and now they’re bringing their insider expertise online.  With the launch of VenueTap, all local party hosts now have a one-stop alternative to scouring the city’s countless venue options, wading through venue directories that spew out a multitude of paid and local listings touting untrustworthy claims, or searching hundreds of venue’s sites that often market themselves with exaggerations and even outright misrepresentations.

“Think of VenueTap as the Patti Stanger of venue matchmaking, except our members don’t need to be millionaires- in fact, our service is entirely free,” says co-founder Dan Rieger.  We filter through the city’s venues, weed out the duds and pair our members with only the best selection.  Through our custom-built online platform, members can now easily find their perfect match, based on their celebration type and specific party needs.”

Rieger added, “While a disaster date can make for a funny story with friends, a bad celebration is devastating. For this reason, we focus on quality over quantity when setting members up with venues and under no circumstance can a location pay to receive VenueTap verification, it must be earned.  Our reputation is on the line with each venue booked, so we’re not afraid to put every potential venue through the ringer.  By doing so, we’re able to offer our members a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  Additionally, they can trust that their information is completely secure with us and any necessary deposits will be made directly with their selected venue.”

To ensure quality control and a beneficial user experience, VenueTap will be rolling out slowly in the New York metro area, starting with a hand-picked selection of 20 VenueTap Verified locations on tap.  “We personally visit and evaluate each venue and work with approved venue managers to negotiate exclusive “off the market” party packages,” says co-founder Mike Russell.  “Only the venues able to provide our members with the best value, a seamless booking process and a stellar celebration experience will be granted VenueTap verification, a requirement to appear on our site.  We are working to add more than 100 new venues in the coming months, doing our due diligence and taking the hand-picking process very seriously.”
