So since drinks are so expensive now (in the Uk at least) a lot of people bring in their own drinks for 'top ups' (vodka, bacardi etc). Do you think its okay to do this, do you think its embarrassing if you do it in front of friends and what do you think the barstaff would do if the found out?

Its not like you are obliged to drink x number of drinks from them, and you are already bought at least one drink.

I can't believe bars would allow that sort of thing

I work behind a bar, have been for a year. When we catch people doing that, we perma-ban them.

Why would you go to a bar and bring your own alcohol? That's like going to a restaurant and bringing your own food.

Well, for a house vodka (50ml, cheap vodka) its £2.15. For a single smirnoff (25ml) its £1.80, for a double smirnoff its £2.90.

The lagers/beers/ciders etc average to about £2.40-£2.65 (pint).

But yeah, I've worked in a fair few bars, and it's always been the same policy.

I thought not being bar staff would be a bigger issue than being 18. Since, ya know, I can work in a bar at 18. Biggest problem being I'm not tough enough

Man, does no one enjoy a relaxing pint of bitter anymore? It seems like people just wanna get as drunk as possible as fast as possible.


I'm the only guy in my social circle that drinks bitter, my freinds all hate it. Your not alone

Bringing your own drink to a bar is like bringing Kayne to the VMAs. Kinda douchey.

I sometimes sneak a top up naggin of vodka into like organised balls and stuff, simple because the hotel that is holding it, have a captive audience at the bar, and so raise the price of all drinks.

I wouldn't do it in a pub though. I'd just drink it beforehand
#28
They'll throw you out straightaway. It's daft.
Looking to buy a Fender Jagstang, u sellin?

Go to a Wetherspoon. They sell doubles with coke for about £2.20

Although they are sorta putting pubs out of business.

Otherwise, they will kick you out. Cheapskate.

Well on Saturday I was at a club that sold beers with a $7.50 price tag each. Per bottle, not pint or tumbler, bottle.

So then I left and went to a pool bar/rock club where I got 3 beers for $4.50. Epic win.

Just have drinks before you go into the pub. Me and my mates usually just drink in the car before we go in.

Yeah the club in the casino in Perth doesn't have tap beer, but has stubbies of normally cheap beer (Tooheys Extra Dry etc) for like $8. Major rip off.

Of course the bar staff would be pissed off. Your taking up space that could be filled by people who actually buy drinks.

But as someone said up there, they polite way to be a cheapo is to buy drinks beforehand, drink them at home then go to the bar already half drunk and only buy a few

There's usually four of us in our group so we just have someone stay sober.

Point is, just drink before you go into a bar if you don't want to buy it there.

A lot? Really? What kind of low-life people do you run with?

Quote by lucertia.
Do you think its okay to do this,
Not only is it not "okay", it's ILLEGAL in most of the states in the US.

Quote by lucertia.
do you think its embarrassing if you do it in front of friends
Not if you're completely unabashed about being a cheap-ass bastard.

Quote by lucertia.
and what do you think the barstaff would do if the found out?
Throw your ass out and bar you.

Quote by lucertia.

No, dumbass. They earn a living by selling you drinks. In return for buying their drinks, they allow you to socialise with others in the environment that they PAY for. Buildings don't come cheap. Nor do the furnishings, entertainment, utilities, taxes, etc.

When jerks bring their own booze, that means fewer sales. So those of use who DO buy the drinks eventually have to pay more for ours. If I saw anyone pulling that kind of nonsense, I'd grab their bottle and pour it out in front of them.

A) Find cheaper bars to go to its not rocket science, everywhere has Wetherspoons, and try find your local scream bar they tend to run nights with drinks promotions

B) Yes I have taken drink out with me, I was young and it was before I had a job, it was cheaper yes and I had it in a hip flask, but I would not do it now.

Pre-drinks ftw.

Ted's for $8?! Jesus. And the $4.50 beers were Cooper's Sparkling (I think the girl made a mistake, it was pretty busy). The place I went to is pretty cheap nevertheless.
