Cocktail Compass: Pittsburgh

As if Pittsburghers' needed another listing of where to drink! Night & Day Studios, Inc. is an iPhone App development company based out of Portland, OR. They have developed over 20 iPhone Applications, including 'Cocktail Compass'. Cocktail Compass is available in 12 cities across the country, Pittsburgh being one of them. They partnered up with Pittsburgh City Paper to bring you a mobile list of bars and all of their happy hours. I downloaded this FREE APP yesterday, and after navigating my way through, I have to say it's pretty cool.

There are 275 bars in Pittsburgh listed under 'All Bars'. 


When you select a bar (for this example I just picked 1311), it takes you to their details page. They list Happy Hour Details, Address, and Phone Number (you can click on Call and that will directly dial you to the bar.) 

If you can't find the bar, you select 'Map' and it will take you straight to their location.

If you are on the 'Happy Hour' selection at the bottom, it geo-locates you at your current location and gives you a list of all of the bars in your area, with a countdown to each happy hour, and a link to that bar and their specials for that day.

If you still haven't found what you're looking for, they have a search feature.

AND just when you think "I wish I could find a number to a cab company right now!", they have you covered. Click on the 'cab' button on the bottom right, and it sends you two options for a cab in the area you're in, with the cross street already established.

As far as I know, this is only available on the iPhone. If you don't have an iPhone, you probably have a friend that does - so hook up with them for happy hour and find all of the hot spots! It's 5 o'clock somewhere!
