Yours avatars should be on the chairs, once you are on the chair, “You have entered a private space” message will pop up at the bottom of the map. It means that only users that are located on the chairs will participate in a video-call and nobody else can interrupt until you or another avatar leaves the chair.
Visit the bar
The bar is located at the end of the hallway to the left, this space is designed for chats not related to deals. There are 9 chairs at the bar counter, hence 9 users can join the same video-call (everyone who takes a seat joins the same call, your avatar should be located on the chair).
Tables for private deals
To the left side of the hallway, before the bar, you can find a space with tables for private deals. There are tables with 2, 3 and 4 chairs. Users, who take a sit at the same table, join the video-call (your avatar should be located on the chair), once you are on the chair, “You have entered a private space” message will pop up at the bottom of the map. It means that only users that are located on the chairs will participate in a video-call and nobody can interrupt until you or another avatar leaves the chair. So if you want to talk privately with one person, sit at the table with 2 chairs, if you need to talk with 2 persons, take a table with 3 chairs, if you are a company of 4, you have a table with 4 chairs.
