In yet another way that the internet is attempting to make our lives easier by aggregating options, an Airbnb-like website for party venues has emerged. Eventup, a website which seeks to connect event planners with empty venue spaces, launched in DC today.

Eventup works just like Airbnb: owners post photos and details of their venues, and interested party planners sift through to find a space that suits them. The party planners can sort by price, location and type of event, look through photos and read reviews. Once they zero in on a space, they can start communicating with the venue to get a more exact price quote.

Besides corporate venues, Eventup offers private citizens with particularly beautiful homes a chance to make a few thousand dollars over a weekend. The website will take a 15 percent cut of any rentals.

Of course, the site will only work if it is populated by options. Right now, Eventup has 43 venues listed in DC, from a private home in Dupont Circle to the auditorium of the National Building Museum.

Readers, would you use Eventup?
