The Drink Nation
The Drink Nation is a free online publication that helps users find happy hours, drink specials, and drinking-related events in and around their city. We utilize real people to call and update our listings in order to provide users with the most up-to-date information available. In addition to our listings, we provide a comprehensive resource of original content, like bar and drink reviews, tailored to the city’s drinking culture.
Our website started in Philadelphia and quickly expanded across the country to Baltimore, Washington D.C., Denver, CO, Portland OR, and New York City. We have a nationwide audience that concentrates on being the local night life hub in each of the cities we’re in. The Drink Nation team can be found across the United States.

Favorite Animal: Red Fox
Nina Starner started her professional drinking career with The Drink Nation in 2015 as a freelance writer and became Lead Editor in early 2016. When she’s not writing about booze news or exploring new bars, you can usually find her around the city drinking whiskey, hanging out with her dog, eating fries, doing sketch comedy, or writing Game of Thrones recaps.
Dr. Claw Unknown
Favorite Beverage: Unknown
Favorite Animal: Probably the cat?
Very little is known about Dr. Claw and he won't answer any of our questions. He mostly just sits in his office watching a monitor and occasionally pounds his fist on his desk. He kind of came with the office, so we just let him do his thing.
