“Let’s Go Get a Drink Sometime” in the COVID Era

Bar Chit Chat and Virtual Happy Hours are the Most Fun at oVice!


It’s finally Friday and the clock is about to hit 6! Congratulations, you made it to the end of another exhausting week packed with work. Nonetheless, instead of heading home, getting some takeaway sushi, and binge-watching Netflix shows, you’re on your way to the nearby pub with your coworkers and your edgy boss for some drinks and chatter.

I’m going to break this into 3 steps because it’s a lot simpler this way:

  1. Dim the lights and burn a scented candle.
  2. Create a cozy ambiance by playing some vintage jazzy BGM and getting in some comfy clothes.
  3. Bring your favorite drink and come to oVice.

If we can’t go out for after-work drinks, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we can’t enjoy the same warm buzz with our colleagues at the local pub. It’s the good company that matters.
In case the location is that much important to you, there’s always a way to bring it to the virtual world.

Hang out at a Virtual Bar!

As much fun as meeting in an actual pub, gathering at a virtual pub equals the same vibe. You can use it for virtual Happy Hours, casual chit-chatting, or business meetings over drinks.
Picture this: you’re in the coworking area wrapping up some tasks. Everyone around you is busy doing the same.
When it’s 30 minutes left before the day ends, people start moving to the pub/disco area to grab a drink and catch up. Most of the time, conversations run smoothly but if you want to spice it up and add some good laughter, you can play games, plan a Trivia Night, or even give a virtual house tour!
