A new bar in Japan opened for people who just want to drink alone.

Most pubs in the country are set up to accommodate groups. You can find more tables than counter seats; there are even have private rooms to accommodate a half-dozen people or more.

However, Juden Highball offers services for its customers who want to drink alone. Reports said the pub is set to open in the city of Hakodate, in Hokkaido Prefecture.

The setup is also in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

It has a one-person booth, allowing the place to implement social distancing while you enjoy a cold one and, as per Japanese drinking culture, and a few side dishes to go with it.

And because being in a booth makes a person catch the server’s eye, each seat has a self-order tablet. You also get power plugs and free Wi-fi, so you can enjoy browsing the Internet, texting friends, or otherwise supplementing your liquid entertainment.

Juden Highball will open on February 5 this year, taking its name from juden, the Japanee word for “recharge.”

It aims to become an “oasis” for people who felt emotionally drained due to the tremendous stress the pandemic brought to the people.
