On Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th October, the Yoti Bar in Holborn, London, will be helping you responsibly serve yourself pints of award winning Toast beer, with no bar staff in sight.
Self served in seconds using your digital ID
Our Yoti ‘Bar of the Future’ lets visitors prove their age direct to the beer pump using only their phone. The purpose-built self-service pumps from Drink Command then pour you a pint - and just like magic, you’re self served in seconds. All you need to do is download the free Yoti app, add an ID document and scan a QR code at the beer pump. It’s as simple as that.
Perfect for busy places
We love friendly bar staff as much as everyone else, and that will never change. But we believe this new way to prove your ID and self serve alcohol is a real game changer for busy festivals, sporting and corporate events.
The improving quality of fake IDs makes it harder for staff to get it right every time, especially when queues are big and it’s dark - this innovative solution uses verified IDs to ensure venues can be confident that they’re serving responsibly.
The Yoti Bar is opening its doors in partnership with Drink Command - the global experts in self-serve draft beer technology. The nice people at Drink Command will supply the self-serve pumps, while Yoti supply proof of age technology.
Did you know that 44% of bread is wasted? Toast are on a mission to change that with delicious beer brewed with unsold loaves from bakeries and unused crusts from sandwich makers. The only other ingredients are hops, yeast and water. Firm favourites in Yoti HQ, we’ll be serving their Craft Lager and Session IPA and can’t wait for you to try it. Read more about them here.
When: 10 - 12 October, 5pm to 9pm
Where: Victoria House, Southampton Row, London, WC1B 4DA
Who: Everyone 18+ is welcome! All you need to do is download the app and add an ID document.

What is Yoti?
We’re glad you asked. Yoti is a free app that transforms your ID documents and biometrics into a single, secure digital identity. It’s your ID on your phone, letting you prove your age on nights out, check out faster with alcohol at supermarkets and prove your identity to businesses in seconds.
Every Yoti account is securely built and verified around a government issued document, such as a passport or driving licence, and personal biometrics. Each Yoti is as unique as the individual and personal data is secured with advanced hybrid encryption.
Over 85,000 people from over 80 countries around the world have already downloaded the app, with more people joining our community everyday.
