An application called Boozr, which was developed during the pub closure in 2020, was designed to bring customers back to hospitality locations as soon as they open their beer gardens from April 12.
With a repertoire of more than 700,000 pubs, bars and clubs around the world, Boozr allows residents and visitors to discover events in their region and the outings of their friends. It allows quizzes to organize their team; sports fans to watch the game together and friends to meet up over a casual drink.
The free app was written by Pete Shaw, an independent developer from London during the months of lockdown the UK experienced in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. With hospitality making plans to get back to normal, he says Boozr offers establishments a way to welcome their customers again and to engage again in their premises.
“I had the idea of Boozr about three years ago, âsays Shaw,â but it wasn’t until the pubs closed that I had time to write it!
âMy friends and I tend to drink at half a dozen neighborhood pubs, but the problem was you could never be sure which pub everyone was going to on any given night, or if there were any events that were happening. we were missing. in one of the pubs we haven’t visited that often.
âBoozr was designed to bring us together without the need for a WhatsApp group or creating a Facebook event every time you wanted to grab a pint. “

Help people find pubs with beer gardens on April 12
Unlike traditional social networks, Boozr revolves around places where friends meet in person. A recording on Boozr is shared with friends who are also regulars at the same pub and future plans to visit the pub target friends who find this information useful.
BoozrThe s global directory also makes it useful as an app for visitors, says Shaw, with an interactive window showing you bars nearby. Publicans can also use the app to communicate with customers, allowing them to manage their events. According to Ollie Coulombeau, director of The Turk’s Head in Twickenham: âWe plan to reopen our beer garden on April 12 and Boozr is a great way to find us. I see a lot of our regulars using the app, especially given the pent-up demand for socializing. “
Boozr is available now for iPhone and Android and is free to download.
