These are tough times for all of us bar lovers who have been stuck at home, but the folks over at Maverick, a cocktail bar in Mexico’s Monterrey area, have thought of a solution to help us stick it out.
There are so many things we miss about our favorite bars. The warmth, the familiar faces, the conversations with friends and strangers… an overall atmosphere that’s impossible to replicate alone in your living room.
But we’ve found the closest thing with I Miss My Bar, a digital artefact of sorts that lets you play with different sound effects (‘bartender working’, ‘people talking’, ‘rain on window’, ‘street ambience’…) that will transport you right back to your good old bar-going days.
You can either start with one or two tracks and go crescendo as the evening goes or play them all at once from the get-go, adjusting each track’s volume to your liking until everything feels just right. The team behind the bar also curates weekly Spotify playlists that are right up our alley.
To liven up your next Friday night at home, simply mix your favorite drink, gather a few friends on Zoom, plug in your speakers and tune in through this link.
In the hopes that we can all go visit our favorite venues soon, stay safe everyone!
