The bougie have come for every little corner of impoverished life.
They took the pub with them, dimmed the lights on the cocktail joints, and set up a bowl of peanuts to hide the smell of money. They turned street food and deli counter sandwiches into pop-up events and food truck rallies. Now they come sideways for the very adjective beer soaked, albeit in a kind of hoity-toity.
A “beer spa” is planned for Orlando. The concept allows guests to freshen up and puff up, drink beer or wine while swimming in a beer bath. Afterwards, the guests can relax in a so-called “hay lounge”, presumably sitting on the floor in a barn, hopefully with more pleasant smells.
If the idea of rich people turning something as egalitarian as beer into a haughty pursuit offends you, it’s easy to avoid. My Beer Spa plans to settle in the heart of tourist hell, just over a mile south of SeaWorld on 11787 International Drive. No opening date has been set, although posts on social media promise to be out soon.
