“HOMEtainment is a premium, online platform where you can book memorable experiences from our handpicked experts who’ll deliver them in the comfort of your home.”
The pandemic has changed the way we do a lot of things, and in an evolving world where we continue to find ourselves adapting to a new normal, Antoine Melon has found the perfect bridge to fill the gap in a refined offering of hospitality, at home.
Riding on his successful career with an impressive background spanning the likes of Soho House and Hauser & Wirth to name a few, it was when his hospitality career took an unexpected turn with the closures of venues and hundreds of job cuts in one of the most devastating challenges the industry has ever faced.
Nonetheless, as he left his last position at the much-loved Aqua Group, he embarked on a journey to co-found HOMEtainment, which now counts over 150 experiences across its platform all to be enjoyed within the comfort of one’s home.
At a time when the market has been oversaturated with uninspiring meal kits and delivery services, Antoine’s entrepreneurial flair has seen him and HOMEtainment make staying in, the new going out.
With an array of enticing options from Michelin-quality chefs, expert mixologists and a host of arts & crafts specialists, the easily navigated platform is a one-stop-shop for curated experiences perfect for small groups and avid at-home-party-planners.
Taking the stress out of organising hospitality and entertaining guests, HOMEtainement is somewhat of a premium Airbnb with all of the talents on the platform, handpicked and vetted by Antoine’s team and many of them leveraged from his own personal network during his time at the helm of the industry.
Working alongside Mags Payet who counts experience in a number of private member clubs under her belt, tech aficionado Sandro Batista and hospitality guru Peter Andreson, Antoine’s innovative startup has already made its mark within the black books of the hosts of some of London’s finest addresses as they look to new ways of entertaining loved ones within their own spaces.
Adapting to clients’ individual needs, the variety of choices on the platform gives you the choice of either participating with the HOMEtainer or simply allowing them to take care of everything so you can sit back and relax.
Be it an evening of music with one of the platform’s many performers from DJ’s, live singers and saxophonists to learning a new skill with one of the masterclasses from flower arranging to Japanese calligraphy, HOMEtainement is sure to impress.
Following in the success of the platform, Antoine is extending to children’s activities and as more of us return to the office, OFFICEtainment has launched with a bang and a whole host of team-pleasing offerings.
