awabar.vr, the virtual store of Roppongi's standing bar awabar, will open on the VR SNS "virtual world ambr" and will be available from the start of ambr's open access (beta) on Monday, May 25, 2020.
You can access awabar.vr for free in ambr through your VR device.
With awabar.vr, you can become an avatar and enjoy drinking with friends and strangers as if you were there. Through the awabar.vr initiative, we propose a next-generation lifestyle that updates the online drinking experience called VR drinking.
Just as AWABAR has become a gathering place for IT managers and entrepreneurs, we also aim to create a place in the virtual world where the people who will create a new era can gather and meet.
There are no specific bartenders on *awabar.vr. Everyone is free to enjoy.
Comment from Mr. Ogasawara, owner of awabar
I had been working on the awabar.online project using the web conference method, but I did not expect that the awabar.vr store opening in AMBR would be realized first. Both of these projects were triggered by the self-restraint by COVID-19, but the idea for the VR store, which I discussed with Mr. Nishimura a year ago, came first, so perhaps it was a natural result. However, I am impressed by the focus and speed of everyone on the ambr team who made it a reality.
It is important not to be too pessimistic about the future WITH coronal times, but to live better while finding fun. ambr is a world full of that fun, and I have a feeling that even if awabar is still a tiny little standing bar (despite VR), it will be a new place to meet people and have some fun. I am sure it will be a fun place to meet new people.
I would like to take my favorite guests to awabar.vr (wearing VR devices) for a drink, just like I did when I started awabar Roppongi 11 years ago. As you can imagine, I can't do it every day like I used to.
Comments from ambr CEO Nishimura
Ogasawara-san contacted us via Twitter and came to visit us when we were developing the project in a small residential apartment. I remember he jokingly told us about AWABAR's VR store at that time. Now, with the spread of the new coronavirus, it has become more difficult than ever for people to get together in real life and have fun. I think awabar.vr is a place where people who will create a new era can gather. We are happy if awabar.vr can become such a place where people who create a new era gather.
