Now You Can Actually Bid For Your Alcohol, Thanks To This Chain Of Bars Across India

Here’s the thing about alcohol; it’s expensive. Even the cheapest of drinks. In fact, cheaper alcohol is comparatively more expensive because you can never stop at just one. And BECAUSE it’s ‘just so cheap’ you don’t see it draining your wallet…until the sun rises and you’re left with a head-splitting hangover and an empty wallet. Ouch!

Now just imagine, how good it would be if you could bargain for your alcohol. As in literally go up to the bartender and tell them, “this is too much, ‘theek, theek lagao yaar”! Just like your mother at the sabzi mandi!  Sounds too good to be true right? What if we told you such a place exists?

Looks like there is indeed one such bar that lets you do exactly that. ‘Agent Jacks’ Bar is the place to be yáll. This place lets you hedge your bets for your orders by brilliantly packaging the art of negotiating in a whole new hi-tech manner. It has introduced a virtual reality with its ‘Agent Jacks’ feature which is an interactive interface helping one crack the best deals for their choice of drinks. 

Here’s How It Works:

Basically, it is an interactive and consumer-friendly mobile application wherein we place an order to a virtual bartender and negotiate on the pricing. Sometimes one can buy alcohol for about a fifth of its price, while there are times when ridiculous bids have the entire restaurant trolling you. It’s like having a conversation with your friendly neighborhood bartender, who also happens to be a bargaining pro, Maybe you should have paid more attention to the mother after all while buying veggies.

While negotiating, the game gets interesting. You can increase your chances to strike a good deal with the virtual agent by increasing the quantity of your drinks. The more is truly the merrier. Your loyalty towards the restaurant might just deem you lucky enough to get you your drink at 1/4th of the price while the rest pay twice as much as what is being offered! So the more you visit, the lesser you pay with your improved bargaining skills and loyalty points. 

You also have monitor screens rolling out offer prices of the alcohol, which becomes the margin price for one to bid below with a hope of impressing Agent Jack and getting away with an amazing deal. This is when you really figure out how street smart you actually are.

I even got the chance to catch up with the mastermind behind the app, Rahul Dhingra who explained that the idea is to bring out an Indian’s most loved quality which is bargaining. Dhingra was clearly paying attention when his mom was bargaining with the vendors. 

On a more serious note, ‘Agent Jacks’ is the perfect app for every alcohol-loving miserly Indian. And once you’re at the bar, the food, drinks and overall experience doesn’t disappoint you either. Here’s what you should try.

The Chakna Platter, is a demonstration of the favorite Indian chaknas in one; perfect for your night out with alcohol that you bargained for. 

Mini Chicken Platter, served on a spade is juicy and tender and every non-veg hogger’s go-to. But make sure to eat it while hot! 

Their signature Locha Naan, is a melt-in-your-mouth, freshly made traditional bread, stuffed with several layers of cheese and handpicked Indian spices.
