In another example of the ever-growing popularity of meme-based cryptocurrency Dogecoin for payments, The Lost Leaf, which is an American bar based in Phoenix, Arizona, announced yesterday that it is accepting $DOGE as a means of payment for drinks.
The Lost Leaf calls itself an art bar and music venue.
The original Lost Leaf was “started as a website around 2001 that sold antique art prints.” Then, they got “the idea to focus on local artists and wanted to help them by giving 100% of all art sales, but needed a physical location.” In January 2004, it opened as an art gallery on 1st Fridays only.
They applied for a liquor license in March 2006 and finally got it in May 2007. They went full-time (rather than 1st Fridays only) on 25 May 2007. Just like with their original location, “100% of art sales go to the artists.”
The Lost Leaf also serves as a music venue, with free live music or DJs “every night of the year starting around 9PM.”
This is how The Lost Leaf announced the news about accepting $DOGE for payments at the bar:
