The Break

Digital detox


The Break is an upcoming event in Barcelona that presents a café space for anyone in need of a digital detoxification, in other words, a break. A place to put their technology aside, for a few hours disconnecting from the internet and social networking, to enjoy a night of social activities: listening to live music, tasting new food concepts, exploring the work of a visual artists, and most importantly, meeting new people and experiencing face to face interaction.

The Break offers nights of Wi-Fi detox to help revive the old fashioned idea of the here and now. The idea is to bring back a more personal interaction without the use of the digital eye, popular among some celebrities who are switching off. There are even hotels that recommend detox weekends and bars that encourage customers to leave their phones at the door, or the De-talks happening in San Francisco….
