The Most Popular Cafés, Bars and Restaurants, According to Lyft
In 2017, Lyft passengers loved Cafe Du Monde and Catch LA.
Where were people headed in 2017? We already know which restaurants offered the best work experience. And we know which restaurants diners deemed the best in the country. But when you spot a Lyft on a busy street do you ever wonder where the people inside are going? Lyft wants to satisfy that curiosity because today the company revealed it’s most popular drop off spots of the year.
In 2017, many of the most popular Lyft destinations were in California: Good Times at Davey Wayne's in Los Angeles was the most popular bar, Catch LA made the list as the best restaurant for celebrity spotting, and the most popular restaurant among Lyft passengers overall was Souvla in Hayes Valley, San Francisco. Lyft also named The Abbey—which calls itself a “world famous gay bar”—the top drop off spot in the LGBTQ category.
However, plenty of places around the country made the cut for Lyft’s most popular destinations in 2017. Café Du Monde—a favorite haunt of Kim Kardashian’s and one of the most beloved tourist destinations in New Orleans—was the number one café destination for Lyft passengers. Earlier this month, Instagram also named Café Du Monde as one of its most popular places to post photos.
Lyft named the most popular destination for “quick bites” the In-N-Out in Las Vegas—not Los Angeles—which shouldn’t be shocking. In-N-Out continued its reign as one of the most beloved fast food restaurants in the country this year. Glassdoor even named In-N-Out one of the best restaurants to work at in 2017. Lyft passengers also frequented the sports bar American Social in Miami, and a farmer’s market in Atlanta called the Ponce City Market.
According to a statement from Lyft, the company culled these results from the 3rd Annual Lyftie Awards, “a tally of rides and destinations with the most passenger drop-offs nationally and in local markets over the past year.”
