Bar Stock Exchange (Mumbai)
The Bar Stock Exchange is different from the places featured in the piece because designed keeping in mind ‘a unique trade experience in drinking and dining – similar to the stock market trade, how cool is that? It is purely meant for people who like to have fun while keeping themselves on the edge of their seats. Further, it transforms the menu to an android-based menu with dynamic pricing. That means prices increase as more customers order the same drink and decrease if fewer customers order, intern creating an ambiance similar to the stock exchange market with prices guided by demand and supply.

If you are looking for a spot which is buzzing with people and has the perfect pub atmosphere, then this is it. The place is compact, packed with features from pubs in the US. The décor comes to life during the evening, we noticed. There is more, they have great music too! Plus, it a café-cum-bar and also has a working space for start-up owners.
