Is this the future of going to the bar?
A bar owner in England is considering investing in a special pod that would be installed in the front entrance. The new device would reportedly sterilize customers as they enter by spraying them with a special mist.
The device, known as a Sterigate, sprays disinfecting agents lactic acid, tartaric, peppermint oil and lavender oil, Southwest News Service (SWNS) reports. It reportedly sells for over $10,000.
Justin Hudson of Bar103 spoke with the news service about potentially installing the device, making his establishment the first place to have one.
“It might be a bit over the top but we’ve been talking to Sterigate and going through it all. It’s an option,” he said. According to him, how his customers react to the concept will play a part in whether he moves forward with the idea.
David Atkins, managing director of Sterigate, discussed how the machine works with SWNS.
