Uber Brings the Happy to Happy Hour

Tuesday night’s Uber Happy Hour at the St. Regis Hotel was the place to be! We set out to have a casual happy hour with 20 – 30 riders and ended up hosting a LEGIT PARTY for a few hundred of our most loyal riders!!! ;) While enjoying a few cocktails on us, the Uber enthusiasts were chatting & sharing thoughts on the most coveted Uber features. By the end of the night, folks were even circling up and showing off their dance moves…yes seriously, at a tech party.

As our friend and loyal Uber’er Jon said in a tweet, that may become infamous…

This was Uber’s first meet-up, happy hour, or party & we were seriously overwhelmed by the support from all of YOU. We’re working hard to make sure that people are having a blast when they use Uber, and we intend to hold more shin-diggs like these to connect with you all! Stay tuned here on the blog for future meet-up/party info.

Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who came out, it was a rockin’ time. We <3 you even more in person! And for all of you who didn’t make it (slackers)…everyone deserves a second chance, so we may throw another party just for you…but at a dive bar. No St. Regis for you!

Finally, check out video footage of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick taking the mic:

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
