The bar for pregnant women

29 September 2014

Ever wondered why there wasn't a bar that was ideal for pregnant women? Well, someone in New York had the same thought and went and set the thing up and called it 'Gestations'.

Now you'll be able to breathe out your beer gut because it won't look nearly as large next to a women who is resting a craft ale on her 7 month pregnancy belly.

Gestations at Fifth Street and Avenue A proclaims: "All you mothers-to-be should come check out our trimester specials and our 9-month happy hour because now you’re drinking for two!"

On Gestations Facebook page, the bar claims that expectant mums are perfect patrons because they can fit more booze in: "The bigger the belly, the more you can drink. True for men and pregnant women #gestationsny."

The bar even got a billboard up in Times Sqaure.


Of course, not many are happy about this.

One disgruntled sort said on the bar's FB page: "this is really sick, a real disparate, how would you entice a pregnant woman to drink alcohol which will take effects on the unborn, this is really ridiculous. I would call on the Dept of Health, to close this stupid peoples door business that are endangering the health of the unborn. umbelievable ..!!!!!!"

That comment may have been made under the influence - we just don't know. Another said: "It’s insane . . . I think it portrays a poor image.”

The bar also said online: "#gestationsny will have free pregnancy test kits when you buy a pitcher. Check out our profile on #BARTRENDr to see what else we’ll carry."

However, the bar haven't actually applied for a liquor licence, so this might be some sort of Earth Mother's Juice Bar or something, who just have some novelty adverts to drum up attention.
