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 ?

Sounds like you're gearing up for start up, will you be having some music to go along with the 45 bht beers?

Let me just say this.  TIT and if you tread on the wrong toes it could be bad for your health.

Just my observation.

Selling beers for 45 bht is what 10 bht profit....maybe a few bht more. Can you sell 100 btl/day plus the odd mixed drink. Mighty slim $$.

Of course every bar charges the same price for a beer.

Too few customers, too many bars. Nobody wants to start a price war.

Why do you think the BanChang 'round/oval table' exists.

Sit, talk whatever and pay half the price for your beer. Same friends who enjoy each others company with a few beers. Don't see a problem with it.

Why pay twice the price for a beer just to have some bird who can't have a minimal conversation with you serve you. Lets be honest, maybe 1 from 50 might actually like you but maybe that like is based on the tip you leave!!!.

99% of the time myself and a couple of friends get together and cook at home and make food that is way ahead of the pub grub in BC. If we go out to eat it's beach places around the area where a large bottle of beer is 75 to 90 baht.

Could go on but I'm going to bed.

Gnite.😆😆

OverhereBC,

 

That's the reason for asking about price setting. Nothing wrong with making money, but 60 bath for a bottle in a condom... come on. Very often there is not even a minimal conversation. She goes back in the kitchen or hides behind her smartphone, talks to her friend...

 

Ok, 60/70 bath + tip makes more money per bottle than 45. Unless at 45 you can sell 4 x more. So why is nobody doing it ? Price agreement ?

The "Round Table" spot started at a time of no other bars in the area. But, today it exists simply because it's cheaper. It offers everything a drinking man needs with exception of music. Cold beer, condoms, right in the center of a busy round-a-bout. If you go to a bar in the afternoon, the chances are you will be the only customer and that's if.......they are open.

 

So for all the good natured ribbing that is directed at the "Round table" guys, I'll be submitting my application when I stay there full time in the near future. Are their any requirements to be met?

Still laughing at anybody who thinks bargirls talk and sit because they like the customer.. hahahahah

Funnier still that guys go to bars for conversations with bargirls... Hahahaah

I go to bars to have conversations/drinks with my friends or to find a bargirl to service me. If she doesn't like me or want me that's a bonus.. After all why pay them to do something they enjoy ? :laugh:

Reasonable sized beer belly, maybe a couple of health issues you can discuss at length with others, perhaps some knowledge about the premier league

That's why God created Wetherspoons. Some of us marvel at a decision to emigrate 6000 miles and sit on a concrete bench at a roadside inhaling dust and diesel fumes along with a roll-up.

The idea behind the roll up is to filter out the dust and diesel fumes.
