DrinkAdvisor is now available for the Apple iWatch, allowing users to discover local bars and browse cocktails from their wrist.
Featuring 210 cities across the globe, the “hyperlocal” app enables travellers and locals to find nearby venues according to various categories.
The user’s ‘Favourite Spots’ can be bookmarked for later viewing on any Apple device – featuring images, ratings, a description and the venues signature cocktails, allowing the user to ‘follow’ the bars upcoming events schedule and deals.
The app also provides up to date information about the most recommended bars, pubs and clubs near the user, via Apple Watch’s GPS function, and provides directions to each one using Apple Maps.
A statement from DrinkAdvisor read: “No more waving around your phone in a new town or unknown district. You can find the way to the next bar or a nightclub with your iPhone stowed away while on the go or sitting at the bar.”
In addition, a cocktail guide features a selection of recipes categorised A-Z, complete with pictures, equipment, ingredients and history.
Earlier this year, DrinkAdvisor launched a new marketing tool for venues in an effort to make them “more visible on the party radar of smartphone owners”.
