Make Family Time (and Your Money) Go Farther with the Best Happy Hour Locator Apps

Make Family Time (and Your Money) Go Farther with the Best Happy Hour Locator Apps from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

One of the ways my family loves getting together and catching up is going to a bar and chatting over drinks. It’s been a tradition for my entire family to get together – at least once a month – as long as I can remember. Just recently, I was tasked with finding new bars we could go to in the area and, I’ll be honest, I was a bit stumped. Aside from just Googling “bars near me,” I wasn’t sure exactly how to hunt down the best ones.

That’s when my cousin told me about apps you can get that will tell you about happy hours in your area. Of course, I immediately looked into it and was immediately drawn in. Not only was I able to find local bars, but I could tell when all of them were having their drink specials too. More drinks for less money? Yes, please! Now my family refuses to make a decision about which bar to go to until I’ve referenced the app. We’ve saved so much money, it’s unreal. It’s these reasons why I’ve decided to share my favorite two happy hour apps with you below.

TasteBud – Rating: 4.7, Downloads: 10K

TasteBud gets you the best deals at your favorite restaurants without having to scan coupons or scan codes. Not to mention, the discounts you get are automatically refunded to your linked VISA card so you don’t have to worry about forgetting your discount. Plus, you can keep track of all your transactions on your phone in just a glance and, if you want to stay on top of your finances, you can get push notifications when your refund is fully processed which is super convenient.

I would warn you, though, that you will need a VISA card if you want to sign up for the automatic refund service. I’m not sure why, but VISA cards are required, so if you don’t have a VISA card, this might be a bit tricky.

Pros: Automatic refund, refund alerts, don’t have to scan coupon/discount codes

Cons: Must have VISA card

Overall: As long as you have a VISA card, you can enjoy automatic discounts that you don’t even have to sign up for

The House – Rating: 4.8, Downloads: 5K

Don’t want to spend lots of money when you go to a bar? Fair enough. The House is really great for saving money because you can access a list of the best happy hour deals and discounts as well as a schedule of upcoming events and live performances. And, if you’re looking for something specific (like a type of drink deal or a meal you’re craving), you can just narrow down your search with filters for food, drinks, or events.

Keep in mind that The House is only available in certain cities throughout the United States. If you’re not sure if your city is included, you can typically check the description box to find out. However, the list is fairly limited, so you’ll want to check before you download.

Pros: Events schedule, filter by food or drink, search by happy hour deal

Cons: Only available in certain cities

Overall: The House offers a wide variety of ways to find the best deals near you, you just have to make sure it’s available in your city


I’m so pleased with these two apps; they’ve honestly made my family gatherings even better because we’re always able to pick the perfect atmosphere. I’ve gotten nearly everyone in my family, including my mother and three aunts (who typically hate all-things technology because they’re “confusing”) to download these apps.

I’m sure there are probably a few of your reading who want to do your own research, which I totally respect, so below I will link the site where I was able to find the above apps. It’s actually a top 10 list of the best happy hour apps out there, so maybe you’ll find another gem in there.
