Lightbar worker Kathy Brandt pours a drink under a blue glow from special lights in Portland, Ore., Thursday, Dec. 19, 2013. Designed to mimic sunlight, light boxes are now being featured at a this bar and a cafe in Seattle to help those with seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, an energy-sapping depression that occurs at the same time each year and affects an estimated 3 percent to 5 percent of Americans. Lightbar has walls leading to the high, barrel-vault ceiling that are bathed in ever-changing colors, such as a deep blue that mimics the sky just before sunrise and a red that evokes a winter sunset.
