    Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bargle?

Bargle is a web and mobile app that helps its users find a place to go to at night. It’s completely free and is designed to be simple to use.

What are energy levels?

A bar's enery level is an estimate of a bar's crowd, noise, and vitality levels on a particular day of the week. Energy levels are estimated by surveying people who frequently go to certain bars, my personal knowledge of going to the bars, and walking by the bars and taking a quick look.

Low Energy:

Bars with low energy will have somewhere between 0 to 10 people at the bar. Finding a seat at the bar will not be hard. The bar will not be loud and will be ideal for an easy going night with not too much action. Not too much socializing with with different guest outside of who they came with will be happening.

Medium Energy:

Bars with medium energy will have somewhere between 10 to 20 people at the bar. You might or might not be able to get a seat at the bar. The bar won't be too loud to have engaging conversations but not too quite from music and other conversations between patrons at the bar. A decent amount of socializing amoung those who people came with and people they meet will be happening.

High Energy:

Bars with high energy will have somewhere between 20 or more people at the bar. Finding a seat at the bar will be difficult. The bar will be loud from music and other conversations going on. The bar might be fairly crowded and at times could be difficult to get around. People will be socializing constantly and those who don't socialize will feel uncomfortable and aggitated.

How are you making money
off of this?

I'm not making any money from this app. This app was created as a hobby and to increase my skill sets in web/mobile app development, cloud infrastructure, database design, data analysis, and night photography.

Why did you make this app?

This app was created as a hobby and to increase my skill sets in web/mobile app development, cloud infrastructure, database design, data analysis, and night photography.

I don't see EVERY bar in a
certain area. How do you
decide what bars to list?

I didn't list bars that were part of major chains or that were mostly restaurant focused. I tried to only list bars that were open late on most nights. Bars that aren't open late but did have a high focus on the bar were listed and profiled.

However, I do listen to people's reactions and comments and will consider/reconsider adding any bar that people feel I may have looked over.

That bar is closed down or I
think you got some attributes
wrong. Can you change
them?

Absolutely, I'll look into it. The best way to let me know is by sending an email to admin@bargle.org.

Why don't I see anywhere
on the South Side,
West End, or Church Hill?

Depending on how much time I have and how the app is received by people, I plan to add future areas of the city and surrounding counties.

Who is your target audience
for this app?

The target audience for this app are any visitors or current residents of Richmond, VA that are over the age of 21 years old.

How do you determine target
age groups for a bar?

Target ages are determined based on the different age groups that frequent the bar, the bar amenties, and how much drinks generally costs.

Where does Bargle cover?

Bargle covers 7 different areas of the city of Richmond: Carytown/Museum Distrcit, Scott's Addition, The Fan, VCU, Monroe/Jackson Ward, Shockoe Slip, and Shockoe Bottom.

Generally, bars in a certain area are no more than a 15 minute walk to another bar that is in that same area.

How do you determine bars
to go alone to?

Generally, the bartender and patrons are friendly and they have a TV to watch at the bar.
