Beer pricing in bars

Recommended Posts

Is there a "round table" at night ? I dont drink during the day other than a quick wisky-coke around 10 am and a can of Chang late afternoon. Have things to do around the house, swim and ride mtb. Take the motorbike for a spin... Wife cooks great food. Anyways, usually not free for a drink or 2/3 and a chat untill 9 pm. I like the concept of thr round  table. Get it, pay for it, drink it and <deleted> off when you are done.

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.

The guys who sit there don't do anyone any harm so any comment I make is humour related. Some of them do have the cash behind them to drink in other bars but a bit like me don't see the point in spending just to make someone who runs a bar with a few hoo----s richer.

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 ?

I don't understand your "but 60 bath for a bottle in a condom". In fact I do not understand where you are going with this post!!

Beers should be 50 baht in non-aircon bars and 60 baht with ac. Most bars in Pattaya seem to be around that price , at least during happy hours.

^Pattaya is more of a "punter's market", due to (too much) competition, and better supply lines. Hence the much cheaper prices.

 

Having said that,  a lot of the Banchang "Strip" bar owners are still thinking that it's still the mid 90's with a load of Oil & Gas expats around with lots of money in their pockets. :smile: Thus, a lot of those place are up for sale, and change hands regularly.

The demographic is now mostly expat retirees and / or people living on a lower budget.

Beer can/bottle condom.
