FAQ

How much is Membership?
The App is free to download and try. If you decide to become a member, you receive 30+ drinks for $9.99 USD ($88.88 HKD) a month, less than the price of one cocktail.

HOOCH BLACK costs just $295/year with approved application and includes HOOCH Premium. Limited memberships available.

What is the difference between HOOCH and HOOCH BLACK?
In addition to exclusive access to travel perks, preferred dining, celebrity hosted member events, special cocktail experiences, a personal concierge and more, HOOCH BLACK members have access to high-end venues and drinks not available to HOOCH Premium members.

What type of venues are on HOOCH?
We partner with top bars and restaurants around the world. Currently Hooch is live in over 10 top cities from New York to Hong Kong, and we are constantly expanding.

How soon after subscribing can I order my first cocktail with Hooch?
As soon as you activate the subscription on the app, you're good to go. Immediately.

Can I go to multiple HOOCH venues and get drinks from every venue?
You get One Drink Every Day. You select the venue, but once you redeem your drink for the day, you cannot get another one until the next day. But you can come back to the same venue the next day, or be adventurous and try something new, up to you.

Who is behind HOOCH?
HOOCH was founded by a group of friends with extensive knowledge and background in nightlife and tech, and backed by top celebrities in business and entertainment today.

Bad service/bad concept for an app

prisonpete

TL;DR version: app is not user friendly or convenient and customer service will attempt to scam you out of money if you try to cancel.

I rarely found myself using the app. Also, when I did, there was always an extra step explaining to the bartender what the app was, how it worked. There is an inherit awkwardness as well as the bartender is probably wondering if you will still tip them (which you of course should). Furthermore the options and drink choices are extremely limited. Basically you’re going through a bunch of extra effort finding a bar that participates to get a choice of only 3 drinks that you’re not even sure if you’ll like or even be interested. I live in New York City so you’d think the options/distance of bars would be great with this app but it just simply isn’t.

When I went to cancel my subscription the customer service rep essentially pleaded with me to stay and offered me a complimentary two months. I accepted and still ended up not using the app. When I checked my credit card statement a few months later it turns out they had started charging me after those two months. When I inquired about this the once cordial customer service rep now just simply sent the fine print of an email and started communicating in one sentence emails. Saying things like “no refunds”.

Bad idea for an app. Scummy customer service. Save your money for literally any other paid app.

Cheers, Pete! Sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience with the app. HOOCH is live in over 100 bars in NYC (with more added every week), and all offer at least 3-5 cocktails curated from their cocktail menu. Some also offer beer/wine and special drinks only available to members. Sounds like we have a misunderstanding with regard to billing. Let's chat and we'll make things right asap, just send a note to members@hooch.CO !

Love this app!!!

When I first heard about this app, I thought it was too good to be true, but it's true! You get one free drink a day at any partner bar/restaurant, so you're always saving money. Whether you're going out for food or drinks, your first drink is on the house-amazing! And there's a nice variety of places all across NYC, plus a lot of other major cities across the US, so you can use the app when you travel. Even if you only use it once a month, it more than pays for itself. I love it!!

Cheers, StellaMb! Glad you enjoy the app

Horrible Customer Support

Unhappycustomer03

I bought this app because they advertised a discount on an event I wanted to go to in Los Angeles if you tried out the app. I purchased the app and didn't get any coupon. I emailed them and they told me to check my junk/trash queues because it should have been sent out. I had, of course, already checked out those folders and nothing was there. The next day I got a message with a coupon for a discounted event in Hong Kong.

I emailed them back telling them I got the wrong coupon. No response.

Then I got an add for them telling me to buy the app so I could get a discount on the event I originally signed up to get the discount for. I wrote them back again after this "salt in the wound" email.

A day later they still didn't get back to me.

They don't seem to want to solve any of the problems they cause. I am currently thinking that any company associated with HOOCH doesn't care about their customers at all.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from this app.
