Co-op Bar

So you’re going to start your own Co-op Bar? Here you’ll find resources to guide you through it. The Co-op Bar was developed as a public domain project in Eyebeam’s OpenLab so you are free to create, adapt, modify, and build upon the plans. The best place to start is with the Franchise Manual.
