Cocktail Compass: a free iPhone and Android app to find nearby Happy Hours 


You’ve had a long day and you’re in dire need of a stiff one ... or four. Rather than stumbling blindly around local bars looking for the happiest happy hours, let Charleston City Paper’s Cocktail Compass be your guide. This magical iPhone and Android app will tell you where the nearest happy hours are, how to get there, and how long you’ve got before it ends. If you want more, just click on the bar name for a map, phone number, or to share the info with your drinkin’ buddies — it’s idiot proof.

Whether you’re downtown, in Mt. Pleasant, or Folly Beach (or any other suburb), we’ve got listings for nearly every bar in town. If you’re looking for a specific feature like Wi-Fi (workaholic), a patio, or live music, you can find out quickly and easily. Keep track of your favorite bars so that you’ll always remember them — even if you discovered them on a blurry night. And for those extra-fun occasions, you can always click on the Cabs icon for help getting home.

The bar-savvy staff at the City Paper is constantly updating the Compass, so you can count on the freshest info, including reviews and photos of featured listings. If you run across a mistake, let us know and we’ll get it fixed right away.

Find your happy place tonight with Cocktail Compass. But you better get moving ... you only have a few hours left.
