Hi everyone! Glad to see Banter on ProductHunt!

Ever go out, only to find the bar you just got to has a huge line, or worse, is totally empty? You then waste time & perhaps even taxi money going from place to place... Isn’t it ridiculous how often this happens?

Well, we agree, so we’re building a nightlife community where you can see & share information on what’s going on at nearby bars, restaurants & clubs – all in real-time!

Banter lets you do three things:
- Find dozens of things to do in your city from happy hours, to live music concerts, to DJs or comedy shows
- Find, chat with & meet people that are going out tonight; we’ll even suggest people that like to go out where you go out
- See & share photos from nearby bars & clubs, so you can know where the hotspots are in real-time.

During the month of May, we had 6,000 active users, with more than 30,000 messages exchanged between users & more than 2,000 posts in our live feed.

We’re still small but growing strong.

Banter supports over 60 cities across the globe, but the majority of our users are in San Francisco, New York, Boston, Chicago, Mumbai & New Delhi. So if you like what we’re doing but we don’t yet support your city, let us know!

The idea behind the application seems really great and the features seem to be spot on with what you would like the application to do. IMO however the design of the App could use a lot of work, I would certainly like to see that cleaned up because I don't feel inspired to use the App based on the design, if that is updated and tightened up however, I think you will really have a great product on your hands.

I downloaded this app a while back, created a user and never browsed it. MISTAKE. Banter really works, I liken it to a Waze/Yelp of nightlife, real-time and honest information on bars and clubs, I just wished it existed when I was 21. Keep the features coming!

I have been using the app for a few months now and even though I am not a big party/bar person I found it pretty useful on several occasions. Happy to see it here on PH today. Good luck to you guys!
