The “Open Concept” bar is a bloody gamechanger!
Well, the only sensible way to start this one off is by saying “f**ken wahey!” Yeah, deadset, anyone over the legal age knows a night on the piss isn’t exactly easy on the wallet, but with news that a bar in Missouri has decided to sell drinks by the hour and not the glass, we have to share the idea and hope like buggery that it catches on everywhere. Check it out…
The bar’s called Open Concept, and we’ll smash the obvious dad joke and get it out of the way early. Drinking piss in this fashion is a concept we are more than open to. Matter of fact, we’d bloody love it!
Just in case you’re not quite getting it, though, the idea is simple. You don’t pay for every drink you buy, you purchase an allotment of time and you’re entitled to drink as much booze as you bloody well want in that time. As we said, “f**ken wahey!”
Obviously, they’re not completely bonkers in there and they have a staggered arrangement. $10 per hour for premium drinks or $20 per hour for top shelf drinks. Once again, “f**ken wahey!”
According to the website, “At Open Concept all of the drinks are on us, although you pay per hour to access the space. At our bar we don’t sell drinks, we sell time. That means for an average price of $10 per hour you can drink as much as you can handle.”
The bar’s owner, Michael Butler reckons they, “decided to mix technology with that open bar concept. To where you can pay per hour and you can stay in the space as long as you want.”
So, yeah, essentially, that technology comes from the fact customers check in on their phones and that allows the venue to keep tabs on how much they’re drinking and ensure no legal limits are broken.
Which all sounds pretty good to us. So, yeah, let’s bring it back for a rousing reprisal: “f**ken wahey!”
Final thought: To be honest, we do really like this idea. Not because we’re total pissheads, but because it just seems like a great way to manage your time and your finances while you’re out. Obviously, the extortionate price of alcohol in Ozzyland would mean they charge a bit more, but considering a pint can easily set you back 10 – 15 bucks these days, this seems like a no-brainer to us. Don’t ya reckon?
