When it comes to going out in the Lower East Side, it’s safe to say lines are almost always part of the equation. Now with LineUp it doesn’t have to be. You can check the app before you head out to answer your question on “how long will the line be”. Then choose the place you want to hit up.
LineUp is a brand new app that’s dedicated to bringing New Yorkers the IRL wait times outside of local bars and clubs. Powered 100% by New Yorkers themselves, it’s a community effort—think Waze, but for long lines!
In addition to helping the LineUp community by reporting wait times, you can earn rewards like free drinks at local bars such as Skinny Bar and SET LES. Currently, the app is only available for iPhone devices and works for over 25 bars and clubs in the Lower East Side area. However, that number will quickly rise as more and more New Yorkers turn to LineUp for their wait-time stats.
Beyond the function of keeping tabs on long lines at nearby haunts, the app also provides users with information about the venues which can certainly come in handy if you’re looking for a new spot to try (or avoid). LineUp breaks down what vibe to expect at said bar or club in addition to the typical age range of its crows and how easy (or difficult) it is to get into.
So whether you’re looking for a new place to check out, or a long line to avoid, be sure to download LineUp here for your nightly updates!
