KXAN – AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) — A new study finds that alcohol tolerance changes depending on where you are.

Elite Daily reported that scientists found people who drank at a bar or a restaurant could handle twice as much alcohol than if they drank at an office party.

Researchers think this has to do a lot with psychology. They believe that your brain is prepared when you go to a bar for a night of drinking.

However when you drink at an office party or even with co-workers your mindset isn't prepared to handle the effects of alcohol as well.
