Bar Locator

10 November 2015

Today’s project is both interesting and useful - bar locator. It will track your current location (if you allow it to) and then suggest nearest bars that are open at the moment.

You can test it out here.

Key Points:

  • It uses HTML5 Geolocation API to detect user’s location
  • Then is pulls data for nearest ‘bar’ and ‘night-clubs’ using Google Places API.
  • It will suggest one place at a time and you can cycle through the list until you find something worth trying.
