I don't think I need to explain what Party With A Local does as it's all in the name. Once upon a time I relied on Couchsurfing to find and meet locals while traveling. Now that I live on my smartphone, I'm much more reliant on Party With A Local. It has the same magical feel as Couchsurfing in its early days, with a much more instantaneous feedback loop. With this type of app, it's all about community, and PWAL attracts a fantastic group of people - I've met people in Amsterdam, NYC, and Malta and enjoyed all of them.

As a native New Yorker whose parents immigrated from Malta, this comment made me smile :D

@samir_doshi thanks, glad you like it! Fun fact: we've found that 18% of Hitlist users say they've taken a trip they weren't otherwise planning to take, and 87% of users think they will in the next six months... it really does help get you out the door! And @partywithalocal can help ensure you have fun wherever you land.

@gillianim I know what you mean...couchsurfing lost its touch. I had a great time as a host/entretainer but not anymore. How can I get the app? I can´t find it on the app store :-(

Thanks for hunting @gillianim and great comment to go with it - couldn't have said it better myself, glad you like it! Party with a Local 1.0 was hunted just over a year ago and a lot has happened since - we raised some funding, formed a great international & diverse team and have a growing community of open-minded locals and travelers who like to party. Today we're launching a fully revamped version 2.0 of our app for iOS (+ Apple Watch) and Android. We hope Party with a Local becomes THE app that connects travelers and locals around the world - one party at a time! Would love to hear your feedback!

@rrhoover @suzywillow Did you end up using it? I got back from Mexico City a couple weeks ago and would wish I knew about this. I ended finding locals and travelers that wanted to party, but this app would have made it even better.

@caffe1nated @suzywillow we actually didn't! Our time was so short with wedding activities.

One of the coolest apps from The Netherlands in my opinion. Big up to @dan_fennessy for keeping this going, I know how long you've been working on this :) The redesign looks great, go conquer the world!

So much has changed in PwaL v2.0! I started out as an early user of Party with a Local & now work as one of their developers, and can say that I'm really happy with what we have achieved in this version. Besides having a complete re-design and adding an Apple Watch extension so users can set their Party Status even more easily, we have also started to include other languages (now available in Portuguese too! 🇧🇷). Spoiler alert: we already are planning v3.0! Long live Party with a Local!
