Heineken is opening a metaverse bar in Shoreditch that won’t serve any drinks, of any variety.

The expertise, which requires spot on 7 April, follows the start of the brand’s digital beer, Heineken Silver, “brewed” in 3D digital platform Decentraland. Heineken Silver is “on a mission to winner what is genuine about what is pretend” and carries on to poke fun at the craze to launch products and solutions in the metaverse.

In the true-lifestyle metaverse-themed bar, at Protein Studios, company will not be served any beer but can as a substitute keep on to a pixelated prop beer.

Influenced by its metaverse origins, all the household furniture and decor in the metaverse bar has a blocky, pixelated visual appearance, the team act like non-playable figures (NPCs) and the bar is sparsely populated.

All website visitors are necessary to set on the “small-tech virtual reality headsets”, which are formed like VR glasses but are about as significant tech as a pair of swimming goggles.

Parched guests who go to the “IRL meta-bar” can gain entry to a special practical experience future door that may perhaps be a little a lot more refreshing.

Next door they will find the “Silverland” location, which will be giving true times in excess of a beer. There will be food items, beers and a sequence of stay functions and performances in the course of the evening.
