You Can Bring Your Phone Into This Bar, But It Won’t Work!
Ever walk into a bar, or restaurant and see a place full of patrons staring into their phones with blank, expressionless faces? You won't see that at the Gin Tub. Owner Steve Tyler decided he wanted his establishment to be a gathering place, where people come to socialize, so he made it impossible to use a mobile phone while on the premises. How did he do that? Tyler built a Faraday Cage, according to newssky.com. It's an enclosure that blocks electronic fields, such as cell phone signals.
Tyler said, "I just wanted people to enjoy a night out in my bar, without being interrupted by their phones. So rather than asking them not to use their phones, I stopped the phones working."
He went on to say he's only received one complaint so far, from a customer whose phone rang inside the bar. The customer was moved to another table, and that killed the signal.
Hhmmm..."Wiley's Pub"...Whatcha' think?
