WHO CREATED THIS APP
The DRINK. app was created by Shaun Ervine and Michelle Matthews. Michelle is the creator of the Deck of Secrets guide series. Bar Secrets London was first released in 2004 featuring 52 of the finest style bars on the city. It is currently into its third edition. The company produces over 20 guides in their distinctive deck of cards format and cover many other cities and themes. Visit www.deckofsecrets.com to download a copy of the catalogue or buy the guides online.
And remember: Deck of Secrets is 100% independent. All venues are selected purely on their merits. No venues featured pay to appear in the guides. At all. Ever.
DRINK. has a trusted, well-established offline pedigree. Our mission is to share the knowledge that arms a first time visitor with the confidence to explore the city. Our guides are never comprehensive; why would we waste your precious leisure time on ho hum, nothing to write home about places? We’ve won some awards, developed a loyal following and been written up in some of the worlds leading magazines and newspapers.
“Everyone is talking about: Bar Secrets. Deck of Secrets is an Australian concept that is reinventing the idea of the guide book” Scanorama, Scandinavian Airlines in-flight magazine NOV 2008.

What's New in Version 1.1
I only wish there was an app like this for all major international destinations. One of the biggest issues I find when traveling is knowing what and where 'the' places to go are. Well here, quite simply, is the solution. Being an owner of many of the 'Deck of Secrets' packs, its great to have this information on my phone at a press of a button literally. I cannot recommend these sorts of applications enough, buy now!
Great but needs an update.
Having used the actual cards in Melbourne, I was very happy to see this for London, and in iPhone form no less. It is excellent, however really does need an update as a few of the places have closed and there are many more that could be included.
