on
5th November 2018

Here at KOMPAS we love to explore, so much so that we’ve made it our business. We are constantly exploring, finding new and interesting places to introduce you to, and not always within the confines of locations on the app. And another thing we love, is beer.

The Last Tuesday Society
Concealed innocuously in the throes of Mare Street in Hackney lies one of London’s truly hidden gems: The Last Tuesday Society. Comprised of “East London’s most curious cocktail bar”, and one of the world’s most intriguingly absurd and intentionally subversive museums, The Viktor Wynd Museum of…

THE REFRESHMENT ROOM: The Definitive List of the 10 Best Bars in Exeter

on
19th September 2017

Have you heard the great news? KOMPAS has just launched in Exeter. As our first order of business, we’re here to fill you in on the best bars in Exeter – from pubs and local boozers through to speakeasies. 

The Ram

They may have just released a new menu featuring everything from Yorkshire puddings to green pesto quinoa salad… but when it comes to Exeter’s Ram bar, is anything really ever going to replace the legendary basket of curly fries? We guess we’d better start working our way through the new menu items. You know, just to be sure. The University’s on-campus watering hole plays host to weekly events from Monday Quiz night to Friday Rameoke (if you’re joining us in the aftermath of this week’s session, we salute you) as well as a whole host of other events, society meet-ups and live sport showings. Serving hangover breakfasts from 10am and ultimate deadline fuel until 9pm each evening, it’s the go-to spot for students and visitors wanting to unwind. With the new menu boasting plenty of veggie and vegan options, it’s got us all pretty much covered. Except dessert-lovers. But when the deals are this sweet, who needs dessert, right? (Sorry. We’re working on our puns.) #CurlyFries #Cider #TheRam #RamBar #UniversityofExeter #UniofExeter #Exeter #Rameoke #ExeterUni #ExeterLife #Student #StudentLife #IgersExeter #Foodporn #Fries #PubGrub #Devon #VisitDevon #ExeterFreshers #ExeterStudents #StudentsGuild

  • January. It's a month of bare bank balances, post-Christmas blues, the cold, the wet, and the struggle of trying to keep up with your New Year's Resolutions... Well, we here at KOMPAS are all for making January as bearable as possible, which can only mean one thing: PIZZA!

With the plethora of Pizzerias in London we have taken it upon ourselves to conduct a BATTLE OF THE SLICE to try and find the best pizza in London. It's a hardship, we know, but we'll take one for the team. 
Stay tuned while we conduct our research, and if you have any suggestions of who else we should add to our list of competitors in the meantime, let us know in the comments below! (Many thanks to @wandercrust_ldn for kicking things off with a spectacular Speck e Rucola and Margherita. You have set the bar high!) #pizza #pizzaslice #pizzatime #pizzalover #woodfiredoven #KOMPASfound
