'Nap bar' makes parents' dreams come true

Who says dreams don't come true? At least, they would be our dreams, if we were ever allowed to get some decent sleep. Luckily, the world now has a bar where people can take naps – without being asked to leave. In fact, they're encouraged!

A bar in Madrid (okay, it's a pretty big Uber bill) called Siesta and Go is thrilling parents everywhere with its offer of serene napping spaces.

And now we're wondering why this isn't a thing everywhere in the world.

The Spanish have always been world-leaders in sleep genius, with businesses closing for a couple of hours each afternoon while everyone goes home and gets some shut eye. And now they're offering an out-of-home sleep experience, because all parents know home is the last place you can get any rest.

Want to know what else is on offer at Siesta and Go? WIFI (not being used to stream Peppa Pig on a loop), coffee, newspapers, slippers and nightshirts. You can pay for your own sleep space by the minute (um, no thank you) or by the hour (yesssssss!). An hour will cost you about $20, and I cannot think of a single better way to spend $20.

You can book a room (either private or shared, and we really hope nobody is ruining this sleep space by making it about anything other than sleep), or you can just walk in and hope one of the 19 spaces is free. And for those that aren't into public napping, there are also work spaces and armchairs if you fancy a quiet read (I really, really do).

Everything is fully laundered after each guest, so you can snuggle down in clean sheets in a clean night shirt, and then hand the lot over to someone else to clean when you're ready to go. It's almost like they're the parents and you're the kid!

Some might think this is a silly service, entirely unnecessary if you've got a comfortable home to go to. But I would suggest those people don't have children. Sign me up!
