Chinese bar doubles as fight club

Tsing kap-ow

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Stressed out Chinese workers are being offered the chance to vent their anger while imbibing a drop of the amber nectar at Nanjing’s first anger release bar.

Rapid industrialisation is taking its toll on China’s workforce, but patrons of the Rising Sun Anger Release Bar will be able to attack staff, scream abuse and wreck fixtures and fittings according to the China Daily.

Around 20 hand-picked male “models” have been given training in how to roll with the punches, and presumably kicks, chops, glasses and bottles. They’ll even dress up as bosses, or more worryingly, women, to enable stressed out punters to really let rip.

If all that fails, the bar will have four counsellors on hand to help drinkers get it all out.

The bar is already doing a roaring trade, apparently, with the clientele dominated by women from the city’s entertainment and “hospitality” sectors.

Opinions on the concept differ, China Daily reports, though Zhang Yong, of Nanjing’s Xiaoran Psychological Consultation Centre reckons that "no matter how civilised people have evolved to be, some still find that violence is the best way to get rid of their burning rage".

Which only highlights the massive opportunity the Rising Sun represents for Britain.

Councils up and down the UK are always agnonising over how to revive their decaying booze-soaked town centres. Now, all they need to do is ship them wholesale to the Far East to allow on-the-edge Chinese to drink, shout, sing, break things and vomit to their heart’s content. ®
