The World’s First Tanning Salon Pub

by | 14th, March 2009

AT the The Pub In The Square (PITS), Buckie, Banffshire, Emma Smith, says of her barman brother:

“He was really badly burnt and had sunstroke. He was all dizzy and couldn’t see because of the brightness of the lights.

“His neck started peeling and was in a right state. Nobody could believe he got sunstroke from standing behind a bar.”

Buckie councillor Gordon McDonald adds:

“It’s very rare for anyone to be getting sunburnt in Buckie at this time of year.”

Emma McLean, the pub’s manager created the word’s first tanning salon pub when she replaced the strip lights behind the bar with high-powered ultraviolet tubes.

Says a spokesman for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, one Carl Christopher:

“It’s very unusual… But it does highlight the importance of carefully considering changes, whether they’re in the home or in a leisure setting.”

But it enlivens the pub trade, it might be no bad thing.

Other things to feature in theme pubs – your suggestions, please…
