Roulette the Right One In

You’re Being Driven to a Bar. No Idea Which One.

9af311882991b1c46b40726a3f3f6897Fade in: tonight.

You’re in an Uber, hurtling toward a fine drinking establishment.

Normal night. Completely normal.

Except you have absolutely no idea where you’re going.

The odds are in your favor with Bar Roulette, an altruistic new web-based service that wants to pick you up and escort you to the bar of its choosing, while keeping the “where” part a surprise until your arrival. It’s available now.

Sometimes you have a spot in mind. That works.

Sometimes you don’t, but your friend’s friend Karen does. Great. That works, too.

But sometimes you want to add an element of mystery and suspense to the “Where should we go?” question.

For those times, you can obviously make a few choices on The Next Move and let us steer you somewhere nice.

But every once in a while, we understand if you want to:

—Open this app and enter your Uber details.
—Decide how long you’re willing to sit in the car.
—Let it rock.

An UberX will pick you up and drive you to whatever highly reviewed bar (it crunches recommendations from a site that rhymes with “kelp”) it decided it likes at that particular moment. Once you arrive, you can check the app to see what bar it chose.

Or you can get out of the car and use your eyes.
