Dry bars trend in U.K.

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 7, 2014

What if you went bar-hopping every night next week and never woke up once with a hangover? Interested? So are people in the U.K, where dry bars offering non-alcoholic beverages only are trending.

Independently-owned or managed by alcohol charities, these booze-free establishments are popping up all over England, including Liverpool and Nottingham.

"Figures from the Office for National Statistics suggest U.K. alcohol habits are changing among young people," reports Sky News. "The number of people, aged 25-44, who said they had had a drink in the previous week dropped from 74% to 63% for men and from 62% to 50% for women, between 2005 and 2012."

Do you think this health-conscious trend would work in the United States? Comment below and/or find us on Facebook.
