The Crying Bar

One of the hottest bars in the Chinese city of Nanjing sports only a sofa, a few tables, and tissue paper – a lot of tissue paper. The AFP news service reports that the city’s first “cry bar,” where customers can sit and cry for $6 per hour, is growing in popularity. Owner Luo Jun says he opened the bar when clients of his last business said they often wanted to cry but didn’t know when or where it would be appropriate to do so.
