Founders Emily Hudson and Danny Diaz were roaming the famous streets of Calle Ocho in Miami’s historic and cultural backyard in search of a happy hour. That’s when they came across Ball & Chain, one of Miami’s oldest bars. With live music and half off craft cocktails, the founders loved the experience so much, it made them wonder how such a unique and authentic experience could be so difficult to discover.
After their experience at Ball and Chain, Danny and Emily started to notice that most lifestyle apps out there did not post about smaller, local experiences, but rather mainly about reviews, coupons, or large scale events. It was clear to them that for many people, it wasn’t easy to find out about authentic local experiences without sifting through blog after blog. And that’s how Spotable was born.
By offering its users information about events, promotions, and time sensitive offers, Spotable is helping those who struggle to find new things to do. Businesses no longer have to worry about heavily discounting their offers to get customers through the door and users no longer have to depend on word-of-mouth or in-mail coupons to find things to do. Spotable is here to help you discover fun.
