Google Maps mashup bar + club + liquor locator
PartyGPS is a new Google Maps mashup that will help you locate bars, clubs, and liquor stores across the US. The mashup creator worked with a web designer in Portugal and a developer in Bulgaria to make PartyGPS a reality.
Start your quest for the great night out (or in) by choosing from a list of 19 US cities or key in your zip code for location-based searching. Bars, clubs and liquor stores are then displayed on the map with distinctive icons. Click them and get brief information about that location or view its own expanded entry in the Party GPS database by clicking either the name of the place or 'details and reviews'. This details page contains other locations nearby, a link to the website for that business, reviews, tags and more (with a small Google Maps viewing window).
The value of this site for people visiting will definitely increase as more locations are added. A link in the top banner area of the site labeled 'Add New Location' lets you quickly add bars, clubs and liquor stores in your area. Be sure to also add reviews for places you have visited!
Follow all the developments for PartyGPS on the PartyGPS Blog.
