I’m Liz, Founder and CEO of BANGTEL. Four years ago when I started our company, I was on a mission to find spaces that could make an event or change the course of a vacation for the better. I’m not talking a few cool things hanging from the walls or a room with a view, I mean RAD places that could inspire. Stick with me here.

After working for 14 years as a Wardrobe and Prop Stylist in the advertising world, I understood that details matter—it really is about the little things. After putting my own Chicago townhouse up on Airbnb, I saw how much people loved staying in really cool spaces that still felt like home.

To me, there was something missing in the Airbnb community: a space that didn’t take itself too seriously, so you could relax and enjoy an unforgettable event or have a life-changing trip with plenty of Instagrams to go around.

17 spots later, BANGTEL is more than just a hotel or space rental company, it houses insanely unique environments curated down to the bathroom tile we pick out for you. We create places for you to stay and get inspired while offering 24/7 concierge that is willing to do anything. ANYTHING.

You need 20 pool floaties for a themed dinner? We got you. Need dive bar recommendations for your area, we’re on it—and you can ask for all of this from the comfort of a swing bed, teepee, and everything in between.

It’s this kind of experience that makes people want to sleep, play, and party with us. Want to Bang? We have spaces in Chicago, NYC, LA, and Miami. Get all our deets here.
