Top 50 Rated Daytime Hot Spots Announced

Nightclub & Bar Media Group releases the first-ever Top 50 Rated Daytime Hot Spots, powered by Yelp, Inc. The list, a hotbed of user-generated information, reveals great insights into consumer behavior, small business trends and local businesses recommended by Yelp users.

“We are thrilled to reveal the Top 50 Rated Daytime Hot Spots,” said Leo Squatrito, Vice President, Nightclub & Bar Media Group. “Each venue on the list is a successful culmination of outstanding operations, energy and unique offerings delivering an incredible experience for daytime customers looking to enjoy food, drinks and sunshine.” 

To create this list, Yelp identified businesses in the U.S. with a large number of reviews mentioning keywords indicating that a business is a daytime hot spot. These businesses were then ranked based on both total volume and ratings of reviews mentioning the keywords, giving more weight to recent reviews. Using the data as a starting point, Yelp used their local expertise to curate the top 50. This list isn’t exhaustive but it serves as a great snapshot of daytime hot spots. Businesses were compared on a nationwide basis.

“Nothing says summer is officially here like a mimosa or a frosty brew while the sun is still shining,” says Darnell Holloway, Director of Business Outreach, Yelp, Inc. “These awesome local businesses offer something for every adventurous day drinker, from craft beers in Big Sur, to cabanas in Vegas, to pickle backs in NYC.”
