UrbanMatter is your ultimate city guide.
From the latest events to the hottest restaurants and bars, we're making it easier for you to discover the entertainment, dining, and nightlife that matter most to you in your neighborhood – right here, right now.
We'll Help You Find What You're Actually Looking for in Seconds:
Unlike some other review platforms we know, UrbanMatter lets you search by exactly what you're looking for. Desperate for a bar with really cheap drinks? Searching for a spot with particularly yummy pasta? Prefer a chill vibe for your night out on the town?
Simply open up UrbanMatter, enter the type of place you'd like to visit (i.e. 'Italian Restaurants,' '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!
We Want to Know What You Think:
Your opinions matter here. UrbanMatter uses local, crowdsourced reviews as our main source of fuel, curating real opinions to help guide our users to the best places to eat, drink, or be merry in any city.
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.
The More You Explore, The More You Get In Return:
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!
Compete against other users to unlock special features like:
- The ability to upvote and downvote reviews
- Access to UrbanMatter special events
- The ability to redeem merch with your points
- A look at some of the best deals and steals around town
- Freebies and giveaways
- Enrollment in the exclusive UrbanMatter Masters’ Club
You can then compare your progress to that of your friends and neighbors in our leaderboard.
Businesses Can Benefit Too:
For restaurant, bar, and other business owners, getting the most in-depth feedback on your locations has never been so accessible. The UrbanMatter mobile app is the perfect solution to combating outdated, stale, and biased written reviews online.
