What is the best app to find people to hangout with in a new city?

As I travel often or work remotely, I have this problem of having not many connections in new cities. Let's say I'd love to have a morning coffee or hang out on Friday evening. Twitter works great, but not always. What do you use in such cases?

    Meetup is the most fabulous way to meet "like-minded" people. That's what it was created to do and does very well as you can setup your search for events to attend before you travel; join groups and RSVP to their Meetups.

    Meetup is great because it creates a topic of conversation between people with similar interests.

    Depending on what you're into (i.e. partying, clubbing, etc), this can be a useful way to find a local crowd to hang with.

    I used this app recently on a trip to London and found that the recommendations were pretty great — as seen through a local influencer's eyes!

    Facebook Groups

    This app gives you a dedicated space for you and your groups

    I travel a lot, too, and I think there are some great Facebook groups to meet up with people. I personally like the digital nomads groups and active groups for travel lovers. Let me know if you want some specific names of groups I like, but you can also easily find them with the search function.

    I think Facebook Groups for the city is a great way to identify groups, meetups and events happening in a particular city.

    Meet nearby travelers and locals, no planning required

    100% the best way to meet people quickly. I've used it in Bali, Singapore, Toronto, Berlin... instantly meet up with people, locals and travelers. I honestly use this every few days when I get bored, it's great.

    Eventbrite is a great way to identify local events in which you could be a part of and meet new folks.

    The correct answer is clearly Yelp. Nothing is even close. Yelp's coverage is really thorough with a giant reviewing community that writes really helpful reviews. Also, the mobile app is great -- great for search, great for looking through reviews, etc. On Yelp, you get good information from both aggregate data and individual reviews. The reviews are super-fresh -- kept up-to-date. The only other thing I can think of that's very useful is Google Maps, which helps with proximity and map-based searches.

    This app helps you not only discover things to do nearby your location but also matches you with people interested in the same things as you. Therefore you automatically share a common point with them and already have a potential idea on when and where to hangout since you all showed interest in the same thing.
