World’s First Underwater Oxygen Bar Opens in Mexico

Guests don snorkeling gear to hang at under the sea at the Clear Lounge oxygen bar in Cozumel, Mexico

I hear the libations in this joint are really breathtaking.

The world’s first submerged oxygen bar has just opened in Mexico. Before you get out your waterproof beer cozies, know this: Clear Lounge, a new underwater experience on the island of Cozumel, Mexico, doesn’t actually serve alcohol. Instead, guests (two at a time) don protective snorkeling gear and are submerged in 13-thousand-gallon transparent aquariums, where they breathe in flavored oxygen “cocktails” and “smoothies.”

Right now, the team behind Clear Lounge is “serving” a choice of citrus or mint-flavored oxygen that emanates from special protective helmets; they plan on adding more flavors soon. Guests can also dance, play underwater Jenga, shoot bubble guns, and pose with cardboard cutouts of actual cocktails.

"What we do is pump in 70 percent oxygen into the helmet,” manager Julie Ferrara told MyFoxPhilly. “You also have the choice to breathe aromatherapy scents. That way while you are underwater doing the activities, you get your O2 buzz, you feel revitalized, refreshed, and rejuvenated afterwards.”
