Ten-Second Takeaway

Bangalore gets its first ever bar exchange concept in Bellandur, which works on the basis of demand and supply. And we are talking about these market principles applying to alcohol. Yay!

The Big Question

What in the world is a bar exchange? It works much like a regular stock market, except with alcohol. So, if there is a higher demand for a particular brand of alcohol, then its price goes up, whereas the cost for ones with lesser demand go down {like, really down}. This is where you exploit the opportunity and switch to the ones with low demand. And when there’s huge demand for alcohol in general {read: weekends}, there will be a “market crash” {Commerce students, we bet you know what that means}. This will result in a resetting of the prices, which means {drum rolls, please} alcohol at cheapest rates!

Wondering how to keep yourself up to date with the demand rates? There are TV screens that list out the exchange rates and market share. But Tipsy Bull is not just about alcohol. They also serve soups, starters, salad, tasting platters, pastas, sandwiches, pizzas and sliders. And the best part? You don’t have to wait up for the staff to come around and get your orders. They have an app where you can fill in what you’d like.

Too Far?

Bellandur might be bothersome for many, when you think of the distance. But this being the first of its kind in the city, we think the trip is definitely worth it. Don’t think so? Well, you have great news – they are going to open branches at Indiranagar, JP Nagar and Lavelle Road soon, we hear.
