The Herald reports:
Auckland’s night-time revellers have spoken – there’s no room for a dry bar in the city.
Tap Bar, the country’s first alcohol-free bar, has shut its doors after only five weeks of business on Karangahape Rd.
This is not surprising.
It’s not far removed from launching a cafe with no food.
Tap Bar, which stands for The After Party, charged a $15 entry fee and non-alcoholic drink prices started at $5.
A $15 entry fee and inflated prices for soft drinks?
Elliott said the bar had a few customers but they drank water and little money was passed over the counter.
If you want to stop drinking alcohol, water is a very good choice.
