Dojo's Final Month

Save to Collections
To our friends and family,

It’s with a sizeable lump in our throat and a small tear rolling down our cheek that we’re writing this to tell you that the Dojo dream is coming to an end. Yep, we’re on a farewell tour/victory lap, about to pass through the pearly gates of city-discovery-app heaven.

Since we began this thing back in 2014, our aim has always remained the same: find the best things to do and places to go in London and Paris. To sift through the Blitz-themed submarine parties, prison-themed cocktail bars and naked-themed restaurants to find the stuff really worth the while; to find a worthy home for that precious disposable dough and that even more precious time.

Living in London or Paris is not an easy thing, and for plenty it can seem an irrational endeavour when all that magical and unique stuff you keep hearing about proves out of your grasp. That’s where we hope we have been of use, pointing you towards those rare pockets of soul, originality and charm; or to see something interesting you might not normally have come across.

We’ve had a goddamn blast creating this, and meeting the wonderfully creative and talented people that make these cities what they are. And whilst we’re definitely cut up about it coming to an end (look out for some drunk and emotional people in a pub near you soon), we’re super proud of the platform we managed to create.

We’re forever grateful for everyone who has used the app and managed to put up with our bad jokes, rambling rants and occasionally wrong opening times. It goes without saying, but we couldn’t have done it without your support.

As for now, we’ve decided to go out with a bang. Until the end of March, we’re gonna be counting down our top 25 venues in London on the home-feed alongside some of our favourite features and pieces of content from the last few years. After that, you’ll still be able to use Dojo for the categories function until sometime in summer.

If we do say so ourselves, we think Dojo has been a pretty cool thing and - what the flip, we’ll get corny for a moment - we really hope you keep on getting out and about, supporting those independent venues and organisations that make up the vibrant fabric of London and Paris.

Keep bouncing,
