An alcohol vapor bar is a concept introduced by British design team Bompas & Parr that allows people to absorb drinks through their eyeballs and lungs. Australians are concerned about an alcohol vapor bar being set up in Brisbane as part of the Fear and Delight show during the Brisbane Festival slated for September 5-26, 2015.

Jake Najman, director of the Alcohol and Drug Research and Education Center, University of Queensland, said, "It's not a good idea because what you're doing is you're inhaling and rapidly absorbing a toxic chemical, which is carcinogenic."

The principle behind the bar revolves around absorption of alcohol directly into the bloodstream through the eyeballs, mucus membranes and lungs, bypassing the liver. It is reported that this particular method could help eliminate hangovers and cut calories by up to 40%.
