Unfortunately, endless countries around the world have been forced into daunting lockdown after the horrifying spread of COVID-19. That being said, we've all been trying desperately to keep our spirits high during these dark times.

Lucky for us, this genius, virtual bar is about to do just that...

Dubbed 'The Corona Arms,' founder Emily Huyton, 30 has created a way to bring everyone together with her online 'brewery'.

"Over the last week or so it's certainly felt as though the world as we know it has been grinding to a halt. I decided to set up a virtual pub so we could still all get together, have a drink, have a laugh and try and maintain some level of normality," Huyton explained.


And so, each week, the online pub meets on the video-chatting platform, Zoom, from 6 pm onward as people sip (or chug) their favorite drink.

"In these really strange times, it's important for people to keep in touch with each other, so people don't feel alone. It's also important to have fun," Corona Arms customer, Gabriella revealed.
