A cocktail bar owner has installed a Faraday cage in his walls to prevent mobile phone signals entering the building.

Steve Tyler of the Gin Tub, in Hove, East Sussex, is hoping customers will be encouraged to talk to each other rather than looking at their screens.

He has installed metal mesh in the walls and ceiling of the bar which absorbs and redistributes the electromagnetic signals from phones and wireless devices to prevents them entering the interior of the building.

Why you hating on millennials, Bro?

    Perhaps you need to move up-market a little. I have no trouble talking with my wife at the restaurants I go to. Of course dinner is usually over $150.

    Dinner for $150?!? That costs more than my date charges.

      If you're taking a hooker out to dinner you're doing it wrong...

    If you've got that kind of money, great. But it's beyond fucked up that you have to spend that kind of money to get some peace and quiet while eating out.

    Depends on where you live. NYC has an extremely competitive restaurant scene. You can get quiet, excellent places for a couple dollars more than McDonald's. Many travellers opt for fast food chains when visiting a new city, thinking it's the cheapest option, but if Soylentils happen to visit NYC I'd urge them to go for real restaurants. They will have a vastly better experience than TGIFriday's and wind up spending about the same. If you're really on a budget, check out Yelp for the food carts. There are some in Midtown and other neighborhoods that regularly form lines.
