Drinks By Demand & Supply, Quiz Nights & A Big Party Space: Why We Love This Bar Stock Exchange

Shortcut

Can’t decide if you want to play the stock market or get tipsy and party? Do both at The Vault – Bar Stock Exchange in T Nagar.

Same But Different

This two year old bar/club is one Chennai’s most popular places to party for the city’s younger crowd, thanks to its free entry and attractive space. The concept behind The Vault is that the prices of its drinks fluctuate based on demand, so the draw is that if you’re lucky, you can find a super cheap deal. That unfortunately doesn’t happen very often as all their drinks are locked to a price range, so you’re not going to find expensive liquor for cheaper than it’s meant to be and the cheaper drinks are what everyone’s buying so they’re usually a tad expensive.

While the drinks aren’t the stars of the show, we certainly liked the huge space and the large crowds. The space is in a basement with has ample room to walk around even when crowded {It’s bigger than most bars in Chennai}. There’s a dedicated dance floor, with a stage area, a long bar counter, seating in the form of wooden bar stools and couches along the walls and tiny booths for quieter occasions. Décor wise, there’s plenty of quirky stock market themed motifs, like bull figurines and stock market like TV screens, which make it stand out.

Millennial Popularity

The food menu features the usual bar fare along with a small selection of continental, Chinese and Indian dishes in their main course section. We especially recommend the Banana Leaf Wrapped Fish that’s marinated in coconut milk and their signature Vault Burger, that’s available in vegetarian, chicken and beef {pick beef if you’re non vegetarian!}, they were both quite yummy. The alcohol menu consists of the usual lineup of beers and cocktails like LIITs and pina coladas that get the job done, if you’re willing to shell out a little extra they’ve got imported liquor like Hoegaarden Beer and Captain Morgan Rum. They’ve even got an unlimited beer offer going; seven days a week from noon to 6pm, for the price of INR 1,250 you can drink unlimited domestic draught beer {British Empire currently}, perfect if you’re in the mood to just sit and drink the day away with friends.

They’re known however for their party scene as the music is mostly from the Top 50 lists {and a few well timed nostalgia inducing hits} and the crowd is fairly regular. Dj Veekay is the resident MC and performs every week on Saturdays to a usually packed audience. They are also currently doing Beer Pong Thursdays, so do check to see what events are happening before you go. Lastly do note that they shut at midnight, so if you’re planning a big night out, we’d recommend going here first and then to some place like Chipstead or The Leather Bar after as they’re open till much later.
