Export google maps results to an excel sheet

I am working on a website and I want to list all of the bars in my area.  I'm looking for a way to take the results from google maps and export those results to a excel file.  Is this possible?  There are over 75 bars in my area and if I could avoid having to type each one that would be great!

Thanks

Try this

Right click 'Open in Google Earth' when viewing your map.
Select 'Copyshortcut' or 'copy link location'
paste into the browser address bar, and find the bit that says output=nl and change to output=kml and press go.
you should then download a .kml file.
rename it to have a .xml extension, and try opening in Excel. (choosing .xml as the file type)

When I right click the map in Google Chrome,  the only options that I have are Directions from here, Directions to here, What's here? Search nearby, and Measure distance.  In Google Earth, when is Copyshortcut or Copy Link Location?  Please keep in mind that all this is new to me :-).

OK it seems the easiest way is create the map using https://mapsengine.google.com/projects/new

Add the bars to a layer in your map

Finally export the map to kml

Open the kml file in excel

I apologize for the late response.  I have no idea how to add layers or create maps using the link you provided.  Can you provide a walkthrough please?

@Myhrcg sorry for the delay.

1/ Create a new map with Google's "My Maps"
2/ Perform a search to find the locations you want. In this example I have used "Hotels Sydney" as the search
https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z5DECsvHxjZU.kXcOzq4b9qKk
3/ For each correct flag select the flag and then click on "Add to Map" (Flag will then appear as red). You can perform multiple searches until you are happy that you have added all the locations to your map
3/ Select the folder icon
4/ Choose the Export to KML option

I've had better luck getting data from Yelp than from Google
