The “social distancing tables” were designed in partnership with Revolution Event Design and Production, to give patrons a way to “drink safely” and stay “six feet apart” from other guests.

The unique wheeled tables, which were described as “social distancing at its finest” by John Middlebrook, who took the video, will reportedly be used for guests as soon as Maryland lifts its restrictions on restaurants and bars. Currently, Fish Tales is only open for takeout and delivery.

Though the tables seem fit for social distancing, the bar has yet to explain how easily it is to get in and out of, and whether or not there will be chairs that can be used in conjunction with them. According to the video, it appears customers will have to crawl under the inner tube to use the restaurant’s social-distancing inner tubes.
