Don’t you hate it when you go to a bar and actually have to engage with people? Wouldn’t you rather just stare at your phone in peace without fear of judgment? Bushwick’s latest bar, VOID, might just be your salvation. Opening right of the Knickerbocker M stop, VOID pre-screens anyone who walks into the bar by asking/telling them straight up, “You got a phone? You gon use it? You better use it. All night.”

All needs met.

The bar’s owner, Tres Antisocial, told The Burning Bush, “I knew I had to open this bar, because I knew there were many others just like me, who simply wanted to stare at their phone in uninterrupted silence, without the pressure of actually having to talk to another living body.”

Anyone caught looking at or talking to another person while sitting at VOID will be immediately thrown out, and their phone will be confiscated so that other future, more appreciative patrons might enjoy it. VOID will also have specialty cocktails with names like “Gizmo,” “SIM Card” and–the most expensive one–“Alexander Graham Bell.”
