Nursing Home Bar

For all of you entrepreneurs out there looking for a business, this might just be the thing, a chain of in-house nursing home bars. You could call it "Geezers".

How to cheer up a nursing home? Install a bar
‘Patients aren’t bored to death," official says at St. Mary's in Ireland

(And of all people, the Irish came up with the idea! )

Some of them weren't able to get a liquor license for their strip clubs. So you have to decide what's more important to you...

I don't think the strip clubs will be any use to me at that age. Have visions of the residents on the brass pole.

Re: Nursing Home Bar

This is a great idea. Think it should be expanded upon.

Work would be a lot more fun if we could 'ave a pint or two at the barrister's table!
