Urban Drinks adds happy hours within stumbling distance

[Insert prerequisite “more bars per capita” comment here], so it comes as no surprise that the happy-hour-location-service market is quite competitive here in PDX. To keep raising the—ahem—bar,  Portland-based Urban Drinks has just announced the addition of proximity intelligence to its service.

With Urban Drinks new feature, not only can you zero-in on a happy hour, but should it be too crowded—or worse yet, completely dead—you can now see the five happy hours within stumbling distance of your chosen locale.

For example, if you visit the soon to be Deschutes Brewpub at UrbanDrinks, you will see a list of five happy hours that are currently going on in the area. If no happy hours are currently happening at the time of your visit, then five happy hours that are going on later in the day will be provided. UrbanDrinks also plans on introducing an address field that will allow you to enter or bookmark your address to which a list of the closest happy hours will be displayed.

For more information or to try the service, visit Urban Drinks.

UrbanDrinks improves profile pages

Web applications are designed to solve problems. And when you live in a town like Portland—where there are reportedly more bars per capita than any other town in the nation—then finding a happy hour is a problem.

Well, there are a number of folks in town trying to solve that problem.

One of the teams taking on that challenge, UrbanDrinks, has recently announced an upgrade to its profile pages. And they promise more to come, including adding “social network” features you’ve come to expect.

UrbanDrinks.com is the work of a small group of friends who have made it their mission to provide you with the most up-to-date happy hour information.
