H2Only, a bar that only serves tap water, has opened its doors in Shoreditch, East London.

Set up by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the pop-up aims to raise awareness for the coastal charity that relies on public donations and forms part of a wider H2Only campaign that encourages people to give up costly drinks like coffee and alcohol.

RNLI head Andy Mayo, commented: “We rely on public funding to help us stay on the water rescuing anyone who needs our help, so we’re asking people to stay on the water themselves for 10 days.

“Our temporary bar is a fun, cheap way to recruit Londoners and raise awareness of the amazing work the RNLI does.”

The bar itself features a single cold tap and cardboard cups for customers to drink from.
