  • This site, basically specializes in showing places in your neighbourhood that are currently running happy hours. When a user logins in to the home page, it shows by default the current time, date and location of the user. It displays detailed filters of a user’s current location and the neighbourhood location for ease of search.
  • The best part is the ability by which a user can filter his/her searches. There is a long list of parameters basis which a user can customize search options. There were unimaginable options like, Outdoor Seating, Wi-Fi Connectivity, and Pool Tables. The filter also had options like happy hour times, option of foods, types of places like a bar or dance pub, coat check options or DJ’s, and also dining options like a take away or a dine-in.
  • There are options to share your search results, via facebook, twitter and email which is really helpful when planning an event. The application is free for iOS and Android phone users.

[box_dark]Drawbacks[/box_dark]

However, there is still a lot of room for improvements of the app. below are listed a few of the drawbacks of the site:

  • The rating system on the site is largely disorganized. The rating results on the website are not presented in a systematic order. For eg: a happy hour place with a lower percentage of likings appears higher on the list than a place with a larger percentage of likings.
  • GoTimes relies heavily on its staff, media partners in each city, users and the business owners to enter information in their database. This leaves the database with a lot of loopholes and lack of coverage. Since, owners themselves enter the information, they information may be fabricated or biased.
  • Another major drawback of the search engine is the inability to search multiple locations at one go. Also, though there are a lot of filter options, when cannot use multiple filters at a time when searching.

Despite the above mentioned drawbacks, GoHappy is a great search engine for finding deals on food & drinks. This is a good news for those willing to go out dining in a budgeted way.
