Find the perfect place to go – now you can filter by price, what’s open, where friends have been, and more
Need to find just the right spot? We’ve added extra filters on foursquare.com to make finding the perfect date spot, brunch place, or bar even easier.
Click the buttons at the top of the page to tailor your results:
- Choose a price range (like a fancy restaurant for Mother’s Day)
- See which places are offering money-saving specials
- See only shops that are open right now
And because it’s Foursquare, it’s easy to personalize the recommendations (you’ll need to log in to use these):
- See restaurants you haven’t been to before (new adventures!)
- See bars your friends like to go to
- See places you’ve saved (make headway on your to-do list!)
We’ll be rolling out more options in the future, along with filters on your phone so you can find the perfect place when you’re on the go. Head to foursquare.com/explore now to try it out!
It’s not too late to do something special for the mom in your life this Mother’s Day. Don’t have time to hand-craft a custom coupon book full of coffee dates, spa visits, and free hugs? Not a problem. Use Foursquare to create the illusion that you’re the best kid on the planet.

We hear this story from our community all the time – people dragging themselves out of bed in the morning to keep their gym streak alive, or going out of their way to try a new pizza joint so they can up their expertise.
Now, when Foursquare reminds you that you’re doing great, it’s easier to share those moments with the world. Just tap the new share button after you check in to post to Twitter, Facebook, and more.
Good news, Windows Phone fans: we’ve been working closely with Nokia and Microsoft, and today, we’re finally taking the covers off a brand new version of Foursquare for Windows Phone 8, specially optimized for Nokia’s shiny new Lumia phones.
So now, when you’re looking for something interesting to do, join over 33 million people who turn to Foursquare to find great places friends and locals love. The new app has all the best Foursquare features, each tailored for the Metro UI — beautiful maps, great insider tips, trending places, and more. Some of the Lumia models even integrate Foursquare data into their augmented reality experience (!!!), so it feels like you’re in the future when you’re finding cool places and money-saving deals.
Have a Nokia Lumia? Grab your official Windows Phone 8 update from the Nokia Collection in the Windows Phone Marketplace, rolling out now. If you’re rocking a phone running Windows Phone 7, stay tuned for updates. Happy exploring!
Find delicious cocktails near you, and join us in NYC for for a taste of the city’s best local eats and spirits!
At Foursquare, we love helping people discover great places to eat, drink, and find a killer cocktail (especially here in New York, where our team is always on the lookout for a great speakeasy). So we’re excited to combine our passion for delicious spirits and local businesses by opening our doors during the Manhattan Cocktail Classic, an annual festival celebrating cocktails and culture in NYC.
Seeking some springtime libations? Use Foursquare Explore to find great cocktail bars, speakeasies, and restaurants near you, and don’t forget to check in to show your support for your local businesses.
P.S. If you’re in NYC, check out all the exciting Manhattan Cocktail Classic events on Foursquare, and join us for a cocktail (or two!) at our headquarters on May 19. We’ll have spirits and tasty bites from local distilleries and eateries, secondary spirits from Astor Wines & Spirits, along with a custom cocktail menu crafted by expert bartender Kigan Joseph of PKNY.
With the new Foursquare, we crunch our data to show you the most interesting things nearby, as soon as you open the app. We also know you never want to miss out on a recommendation from a friend. So, we’re rolling out more recommendations from friends, which you’ll see the moment you open the app (since they’re probably not around for you to ask them).
If you’re walking around and we know your pal has left a tip at a restaurant in the neighborhood, or if a bunch of your friends have been to a bar nearby, we’ll make sure you know about it.
Get by with a little help from your friends. Get the latest Foursquare update now.
Two days after 4sqDay, we’re still smiling over all of the tweets, photos, and specials from around the world. 4sqDay is all about celebrating our communities, and the ways people use Foursquare to find their new favorite coffee shop, that tucked-away clothing store downtown, or an amazing restaurant in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Now in its fourth year, it continues to be a truly global movement, and we couldn’t be more inspired by you, our amazing community.
From Berlin, Bologna, and Moscow to Paris, Atlanta, and Miami, you came together to check in at local cafés, plazas, bars, and restaurants, and unlock great specials along the way. Celebrations spanned across college campuses, throughout dozens of cities, and even went all the way to outer space (oh hey there, Mars Curiosity!).

We were thrilled to see amazing 4sqDay specials offered at places around the world, and to see so many people taking the opportunity to check in at local businesses – from their neighborhood favorites to new places they found using Explore.
Some fun stats:
- Tens of thousands of businesses created specials in the weeks leading up to April 16
- Thousands of businesses around the world offered 4sqDay-specific specials
- The cities with the most 4sqDay-specific specials were Jacksonville, Florida, New York City, and Los Angeles, California!
So thanks to everyone who participated in 4sqDay this year, whether you offered a special at your business, unlocked one in your neighborhood, or organized an amazing meetup in your city. As always, a big thank you to the 4sqDay founders and team – the day wouldn’t be the same without you! And if you haven’t already, make sure to check out all of the places you’ve explored this year at foursquare.com/visualizeme. Until next year!
Foursquare is all about helping you and your friends find the best places to go, wherever you are. Now it’s your turn to tell us — what are your must-see spots in NYC? Make a Foursquare list that includes the top five spots you’d recommend to everyone you know, locals and visitors alike, and you could win behind-the-scenes tours of Lincoln Center and Foursquare HQ.
Here’s how to enter:
- Log in at foursquare.com and click the ‘Lists’ tab. Create a new list with #NYCmustsee4sq in the title, and add five spots to it.
- The places should span at least three boroughs, but can be anywhere that you like to go (that’s open to the public). Maybe it’s an iconic spot like a park or a museum, or perhaps it’s a hidden gem that has yet to be discovered. Or like, that place where they go in “When Harry Met Sally”… or “You’ve Got Mail” … or “Kate & Leopold.” #welovemeg
- Dress your list up with tips and photos so that it really stands out.
Click here for the full list of details, and submit your list between April 17 and April 26. The winner will be announced on May 2.
