The app only picks “highly rated” bars within a certain radius and even checks if the bar is open before taking you there. It’s just a website right now, but the team said on Product Hunt that it’s working on a native version for iPhone users.
I love the idea of this and hope to see other versions for places like restaurants or parks in the future, though it’s kind of disconcerting that the app could take you… well, anywhere.
