When the pandemic struck, the owners of Maverick, a small bar in Monterrey, Mexico, learned their company had been abandoned. As a result, Oscar Romo and René Cárdenas adapted to a recent trend that many bars have adopted to keep their employees employed: delivery cocktails. But that is not what the bar is all about. Oscar devised a line when he first opened the bar. Cárdenas, the bar’s marketing partner, said the name Maverick means “meeting place” in Spanish. It is a place where you can meet new people and make new friends. That’s how I Miss My Bar was born, a free, interactive website that launched in June 2020 with the aim of bringing Maverick’s locked-down delivery customers’ atmosphere into their homes. What is the secret to these methods? Sound. I Miss My Bar’s landing page has sounds that resemble “bartender working”, “people talking,” and “street ambiance.” By hearing these, the owners help people feel less lonely during this time of the pandemic.
