Coming soon

We hope to have an app for iPhone/iPad in 2017. We're also planning an app for everyone to use, to accompany our search page, lthr.club, which will make it easy to look up information about bars and shops, when you're on the go, or check event details in the BLUF calendar. The iOS version of the app is currently in early testing - if you're a member and want to try it out, please read the information in the site forum.
