A bizarre bar opened recently, which serves its customers tap water only.

The bar opened in London, England, this week.

The business that appropriately named itself H2Only Bar, has only cold water and a stash of paper cups.

The bar has been opened by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), which is asking people to drink only water for 10 days as part of an annual fundraiser called the H2Only Challenge.

RNLI said that the charity relies on public funding to help its members stay in the water to rescue anyone who needs help. RNLI said that the bar is a fun and inexpensive way to let people know about the work that the charity does.

It costs more than 400,000 pounds a day to run the rescue service, and during a 10 day period, RNLI saved 9 lives and helped 478 people.
