Your Interests Matter.
Between user-driven reviews and a map-based interface, our app gives you an innovative way to discover what matters to you. Itching to find a nightclub that’s lit right now? Or are you looking for a dive bar with cheap drinks, a chill vibe, and great service? You can narrow down the results in your neighborhood to find exactly what you’re seeking.
Simply open up UrbanMatter, enter the type of place you'd like to visit (i.e. 'Italian Restaurants,' 'Dive Bars,' 'Coffee Shops'), select the Matters pins that are most important to you, and watch our map populate with all the criteria-matched locations in your area. It's that easy!
Our unique Matters pins allow users to filter by:
- Service Quality
- Food Quality
- Drink Quality
- Live Music
- Cover Charge
- Celebrity Sightings
- Attractive People
- And more!
Your Opinions Matter.
Thanks to our authentic, user-driven reviews, UrbanMatter curates the real opinions of locals to guide you toward the best hotspots around Chicago. Once you've found a location you like – or really dislike – you can let others know by:
- Dropping your own Matters pins
- Sharing written reviews
- Giving a star rating
- And even attaching photos!
These reviews will then factor into the location's overall score. Plus, once you've let us know what's up, UrbanMatter will recommend similar locations so you can keep on exploring Chicago food, bars, events near me, and so much more.
Your Success Matters.
You can now earn points every time you visit new locations in your city. The more reviews and Matters pins you leave – and the more upvotes those reviews receive – the higher you’ll climb in our levels system!

- The ability to upvote and downvote reviews
- Access to special events in Chicago
