An unusual bar called “The Other Side” opened in a Chicago suburb on April 27, 2013. Even though being alcohol-free, it’s no different from similar establishments in any other way: it has music, alcohol-free cocktails, games, etc.
The idea for the bar came from a group of friends who have encountered and personally dealt with different types of addictions throughout their own lives. The owners would like to give young people a chance to have fun, relax and dance without being tempted or peer-pressured to an alcoholic beverage or drugs.
The money from the project will be used to aid those fighting or recovering from drug addiction.
