New York, NY (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
barHappy, the online bar-going community and mobile happy hour finder, today announced it has surpassed 100,000 registered users and expanded into the Hamptons and Jersey Shore in time for the summer. With the expansion, barHappy is now enabling bar goers across 18 major cities in the United States to find drink specials nearby, see where their Facebook friends are checking-in, create bar wishlists and organize spontaneous pub crawls all via its online community and free iPhone app.
"We are excited to pass the hundred thousand registered user mark as customer growth has really accelerated over the past few months,” said James Fisher, Managing Director and frequent barHappy user. “Our customers across the country, and especially in New York City, have responded to our latest update and we’re looking forward to expanding our service and features as they frequent two local, summertime hotspots.”
In recent months barHappy has added significant new features and functions to its service in order to help users find and plan what to do each night. The new Outings feature lets users create a full night out for friends with multiple restaurant, bar or club stops. Users can set the time and date for their outings, and stops, and then invite their Facebook friends to join. In addition, a more robust set of bars and search filters ensures that users can pick the best spot nearby based on atmosphere and amenities. Users can sort by atmosphere categories like Relax, Listen, Play, Mingle and Watch; and filter by amenities such as pool tables, wine bars and more.
“We’re really focused on making the online and mobile experience personalized so users can serendipitously discover bars and nightlife that meet their current mood, interest and budget,” said Fisher. “If you want to play pool you can find a billiards room near you, if you want to listen to a local act you can discover nearby live music, if you want to watch your favorite team you can see where they’re televised and if you want to save some money you can locate a nearby $5 menu.”
barHappy is currently working with more than 19,000 bars and restaurants across the 18 markets it’s operating within. These establishments can update deals through the online community to send push notifications to users. Bars and restaurants within these markets interested in registering their establishment to update deals and information for potential customers in real-time can do so at barHappy.com.
