Thiruvananthapuram: Bars in the state capital are shifting to a new system where booze prices will swing up and down, much like in a stock market.
A well-known bar in Thampanoor has already introduced the new system. The prices for booze change based on the number of people and the measure of the drink. With screens providing real-time prices, tipplers can order the best-priced spirit.
The new attraction is the swing in the prices of both brands and measure, resulting in cheap booze all around. Apart from getting your favourite drink at a cheaper rate, there is the added high of indulging in trading for the best price and the finest drink.
Just like in a stock market, there are chances of a price crash too, when a siren will alert all Bacchus lovers.
There are apps too, which will give real-time alerts on price fluctuations.
If you don't want to fiddle with your smartphone, there are television screens that will provide instant alerts. The benefits are higher for those who are waiting for their next drink -- the best time for profit booking.
But, the big question is, will the sloshed tipplers be able to comprehend the price fluctuations and take full advantage?
