BarChick is an independent guide to the best bars in the world. The BarChick gang is made up of over 100 people, including cocktail experts, bar industry experts, lifestyle writers, night owls, party animals, hipsters and those who just know where the party’s at.

BarChick covers over 60 cities across the globe from London, Paris and Ibiza to Sydney, Rio and New York with new cities being added all the time.

The BarChicks are hot on the scene when it comes to newly opened bars, and every bar that's featured has had a visit from a thirsty BarChick. Only the very best bars make their way on to the website and the new BarChick app (oh and Android too…)

This is no ordinary app – it’s the ultimate global bar finder and going out accessory where you can search for bars by time of the day, who you’re with, what you want (killer cocktails with a hot date on a roof terrace ?) and of course by location. Hell, the app can even help you out with ‘what to order’ and get you free drinks.
BarChick regularly writes for, and has been featured in, some of the world’s best publications such as The Guardian, The Evening Standard, The Independent, T3, USA Today, Grazia, EasyJet Traveller, ELLE and The Spirits Business to share our expert knowledge on the international cocktail scene.

Don't just take our word for it...

British Fashion Council: ‘London’s latest must-have accessory for anyone heading out in the city’

Lonely Planet: ‘BarChick is a spirited guide to online drinking’

Guardian ‘Top travel site 2013’: ‘The site stands out for putting in plenty of groundwork and keeping content up to date’

The Telegraph 500 must-have apps: ‘An app from the well-informed BarChick whose irreverent reviews cover an eclectic collection of cities – from London and Bristol to Milan and Paris. The bars can be searched by proximity and the occasion such as ‘killer cocktails’, ‘debauchery’ and ‘awesome views’
