What to do when you must have an appletini with the girls but just can't think where to go? Drink Advisor indexes bars and clubs in big cities the world over, letting you search out what's hot in the world of boozing near you.
The app includes info on over 3000 venues in more than 120 cities (so pack your passport). The pub profiles each includes a few descriptive sentences, hours, address, phone number, and a rating. There's also a space to leave a a review and read those of others, but nowhere did I encounter any actual user reviews. The app's quite new as of the time of writing this review, so that could change.
The cocktail and drinks sections give info on such classics as the Harvey Wallbanger and the Singapore Sling, including what you'll need on hand to concoct them. As such, you may proceed to party at your place.
The app design is decent, all navy blue for nighttime.
I'm not sure why you would use this app instead of Yelp, Foursquare, or any other index of ratings that includes more variety than merely places which serve alcohol. I also find the percentage ratings inexplicable, given that there don't appear to be any user reviews (at least, none in Barcelona, Bangkok, or New York - I didn't search all 120 cities).
Drink Advisor is a potentially useful app with room to grow.
