Happy hour. It’s that moment of the day when you can de-stress, decompress, cut loose, let your hair down, drop your drawers, and have a good time. But where oh where should you go for the best deals? Let us introduce you to Cocktail Compass, the City Paper’s happy hour app.

It’s a countdown clock of good deals and good times. Rather than stumbling blindly around local bars looking for the happiest happy hours, the Cocktail Compass can be your guide. This magical iPhone 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.
