Pay six dollars for a good one-hour cry
BEIJING (AFP) - An entrepreneurial businessman in east China's Nanjing city has had immense success with a bar where customers can get a good cry for the price of 50 yuan (six dollars) an hour, state media said.
The 'Cry Bar' features nothing but a couple of tables and a sofa, plus loads of tissue paper for the tears shed by the customers, the China News Service reported.
The owner, Luo Jun, used to run a marriage agency, only to discover that many of his clients had an immense desire to cry but could not find the right opportunity -- and the idea for the bar was born.
The news service quoted a customer as saying he was visiting the bar for the third time, always finding it a great way to shake off some of the pressure he was feeling in his daily life.
