After my last post I'm pleased to announce that Gypsy Bar have reverted to more sensible pricing at RM 13 net for a mug of Tiger after 9 pm...whilst it's RM 10 before 9 pm.
There are still some good deals to be had along Changkat Bukit Bintang but you have to shop around.
A lot of bars now do volume deals-buy 1 get 1 free, buy 2 get 1 free etc etc.
To be honest it gets a bit confusing as it takes quite a while to read the drinks menu and if you're standing outside you get a barrage of noise with waiters shouting various offers at you.
The deals are good if you get to a bar early and plan to stay there but not so good for bar-hopping.
The economy this year is supposed to be a bit tough so we can expect either a few little price wars for competition along the street or everybody increasing their prices in an attempt to cover reduced margins ,rising costs and fewer customers.....Certainly the recent Xmas/New Year festivities were somewhat muted...it remains to be seen what 2014 will bring,
I certainly don't want to see bars forced to close but then again, I want a value-for-money beer where you know the bar is not profiteering.....
