Host a Pop-up

Pop-Up Features


All events are kickstarted, meaning a party doesn't "pop" until enough guests RSVP, so hosts know what to expect.


All guests chip in so the cost of hosting is shared equally.


Hosts review invite requests to decide whom to invite.


Keep old friends in the mix by sending them a direct invite so they can chip in too.

Ways to get Pop'n...


Take full control and throw your own unique Pop-up from scratch.

Brunch, dinner parties, cocktails, performances, themed events, games, cooking classes and more, a Pop-up can be anything and happen anywhere.

Set a ticket price to cover your costs and keep any extra money you make.


Just open your door and let the party come to you.

You provide the venue, select the guests you want to attend, and choose which bartender or chef you want to show-up and CB will do the rest.

You even get a split of the tip jar!
