Beer pricing in bars

Recommended Posts

Is there an agreement amongst bar owners to set the prices for beer. Like a chang is 60 up (no glass/ice) ? If somebody were to ask say 45 in the bottle and 50 with glass/ice, would he get in trouble ? What's your take ?

I believe there is a cartel of entrepreneurs (in the loosest sense) who run bars on the strip who engage in price collusion/price fixing. That's if you can apply the economic concept of oligopoly to the Ban Chang strip. It's generally 80 baht for a beer in every bar. Outside of the strip generally the Thai economic and social concept of 'up to you' is applied to pricing.
