The website features a simple and stylish interface that allows users to conveniently find the information they're searching for and plan events with friends. Registered site users have the opportunity to earn barHappy rewards in exchange for rating and checking into establishments, creating outings, and adding establishments to their wishlist on the site. Furthermore, business owners are encouraged to manage their own profiles so that the information on the site is kept as current and accurate as possible.
The iPhone app works in conjunction with the barHappy website and allows users to search for local establishments based on any of the following criteria: special type, event type, establishment features, atmosphere, and sports teams. Matching results are displayed on a map along with the user's current location. The app is available for free on iTunes.

- A neighborhood filter that allows users to search within specific neighborhoods from both the 'Find' and 'Specials' search.
- A dynamic map layout providing users a new way to view and refine search results.
- An improved geo-located search providing results by nearest location.
