Life’s better with a little more happy

Since launching in 2004, we grew to over 150k monthly searches in Australia, before Covid put us, and much of the industry, on hold.

Now we’re bringing happy back. In September 2023 we’re launching The Happiest Hour 2.0, with new features and functionality to get people across Australia into great local venues.

Customers use our platform to explore venues, happenings and specials that make them happy, empowering people to eat and drink out more, while supporting local. The hospitality industry is still over $1b off the revenue levels pre-covid, and many people across Australia are still stuck in stay-at-home Covid habits. We see this as our $1b opportunity for the hospitality industry whilst also getting people socialising more with friends and family.

Run by Sydney-based seasoned entrepreneurs with the vision of getting people across Australia into the best local venues with the fam and friends more often!
