In Paris, a bar where the prices change depending on the stock market
Happy hour is no longer the only way for customers to save money. This is apparent at the Wall Street Bar which has created a theme that combines fluctuation and drinks’ prices depending on the stock market.
Situated in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, the Wall Street Bar has come up with a surprising concept in order to stand out from the competition: varying their drinks’ prices as if they were stock market products.
Drinks are considered like a stock market portfolio. Depending on the orders, their price is updated every 100 seconds. The prices are displayed on a big screen placed behind the bar which is inspired by those we see in market rooms around the world.
The ‘stock market’ is open from 6pm to midnight, when the bar closes. Thanks to the system, the cost of a drink can therefore go from eight to four euros in a matter of minutes, allowing the bar to adapt its prices to the demands, and allowing the customer to take advantage of offers which are not only appealing but also fun.
At the Wall Street Bar, the stock market universe is not only present on the big screen, it’s an institution in its own right. The menus are published on fake dollar bills and cocktails have evocative names (Trader Martini, Dividende, Down Jones and even Cac 40).
