What Is Barsmart?

BarSmart.com is a website that caters to the nightlife crowd and seeks to catalogue every bar, pub, restaurant, nightclub or establishment that serves alcohol. We offer reviews, photos and user commentary on every aspect of an establishment that can affect your nightlife experience along with news about the hottest districts and information on local bands.

We are here for you, the reader, and our mission is to give you as much information as possible about your next night out on the town.

How Often Do You Review Bars?

With so many establishments out there it's difficult to review them all, but we try to keep our reviews as up to date as possible, giving the bigger or more popular bars frequent reviews because their specials and events tend to change more often. If you see an event or special you like, be sure to call the bar first for specific details.

How Much Does It Cost To Add My Bar?

There is no fee to add a legally licensed drinking establishment to our searchable database. We want to get your information to the public, and we couldn't do that if we charged you for listing your establishment. We will also send out a representative to conduct a free interview and review of your establishment.

We do allow local bars to advertise through our site as well, so if you want even more exposure please contact us via our feedback form for more information.

Do You Accept Advertising Money From Bar Owners?

We sure do! However we won't accept any money until after the bar has been given a fair review. We would rather lose potential advertisers then lose faithful readers who trust us to give them the complete picture. Besides, we feel that bars with really negative reviews should spend their money on improvements, not advertising.

Why Do So Many Bars Have A Rating Of 5?

Because 5 is average. These bars are nice to visit, but they have either many small flaws or several critical flaws that have brought their overall score down. Too many bars will specialize in one thing, only to ignore another. For instance, if you have a great dance floor and security team, but your bathrooms are small and your drink selection is limited, your rating will come out to be average. A 1 is nearly impossible to obtain and on the same note so is a 10.

In the future, user ratings will also change what a bar rating is, so if a bar has a lot of fans that will count as well.
