The Data Detox Bar invites visitors to have discussions about digital topics in an analogue space, creating a truly unique experience.

The Data Detox Bar is an important addition to exhibition spaces, first emerging in 2016 at The Glass Room: New York to giveaway the Data Detox Kit and to start conversations with visitors. It was then further developed at The Glass Room: London in 2017, and featured as a central meeting point in The Glass Room: San Francisco in 2019.
