Created by the design firm March Studios, in collaboration with Absolut Vodka and the British Design Council, paper bars have been constructed in Melbourne Australia using 1400 metres of tracing paper.

Every once in a while I like to go outside of my comfortable Irish pub bubble and check out some drinking holes that defy conventional design. Whether it’s an ice bar or a club that's plastered with post modern art, it’s always worth a night out to see just how far people will go with a traditional bar concept. I’ve yet to come across any paper bars in my alcohol drenched quests -- until now, that is.
Paper bars may be the next longstanding trend in nightlife entertainment, so long as it doesn’t get too windy.
