NEW YORK — After college, most people do their best to avoid having to pull any more all-nighters. But for some, even after graduation, the wee hours are the most productive.
That is what led Amber Lambke and Allan Grinshtein to start New York Nightowls, a sort of study hall for entrepreneurs, freelancers, and software developers who gather at 10 every Thursday night and stay as late as 4 a.m.
“The goal is to come, get inspired, meet new people and get work done,’’ said Lambke, a creative consultant. “It’s six hours of uninterrupted, productive time where you’re surrounded by other creative people doing awesome things.’’
Although the New York group has been meeting only since April, the concept is catching on. Others have organized similar weekly gatherings in nearly a dozen cities, including Boston, San Francisco, Stockholm and Melbourne, Australia.
