This is great news for anyone who loves free drinks and hates anti-social behaviour.

My Place in Coolum will give you a complimentary house wine or beer if you hand them over your mobile phone and tech devices while you dine at the venue.

Metropolist reports that My Place wants to reconnect people and bring the social interaction back into lunch and dinner.

And what better way is there to do that than ditching the mobile phones (and yes, laptops and tablets count too) and starting conversations with your table companions?

It’s all about putting our addiction with technology aside and detaching ourselves from our phones.

This can be a big ask for some people, so My Place are offering liquid encouragement to help with the process.

Of course, you will get your mobile phone back at the end of the night, so you don’t have to worry about parting ways forever — although by the time you get it back, you might not even want it anymore.

If you’re in Coolum and want a tech-free lunch or dinner, you can find My Place at 1768 David Low Way, Coolum Beach.
