The big difference between Whereto.ai and other nightlife websites is that we give you a
recommendation of the best areas of a city for the ‘vibe’ you’re looking for, rather than a specific
venue like a restaurant or bar. We think this is a much better way to help you have a good night
out, because you’re free to explore the area yourself and create your own magic.
Our algorithm searches for the best areas for your night out and ranks them in order of appeal
based on your preferences. If you’re new to the city, we recommend you go to the area marked
‘1’. If you don’t like a recommendation, you can always click the dislike button (thumbs down
icon) and we will delete it for you and update the map with another area that fits your needs.
Our algorithm is based on a spatial statistics model that draws data from public and proprietary
maps online. We look at every venue of interest within a city and identify the areas that have the
highest ‘density’ of venues that fit your needs. What this means for you is that once you choose
which area you want to go to, you can leave your house knowing that you’ve maximized your
chances of having a great time.
Our algorithm is developing fast, but it currently only knows about the existence of cities we
think of ourselves. Right now we are still trying to get an idea of which cities people are
interested in, so if you think there’s somewhere we should add, please
let us know!
