Stocks, like alcoholic beverages, can build a steady buzz, with holders often experiencing dizzying heights, but sometimes losing their shirts. Invest in your nightlife with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of burgers, sandwiches, cocktails, and more, plus a choice of complimentary fries, frickles, or veggie spring rolls (up to a $6 value) at Exchange Bar & Grill, located in Gramercy Park.
Putting a bull- and bear-based spin on familiar pub fare, the Exchange Bar & Grill populates its menu with creative dishes and resplendent drink selections based upon its own in-house stock market. A ticker screen above the bar displays libation rates that respond to fluctuations in each drink's demand, with prices raised in 25-cent increments based on popularity and a reverse market allowing bar-side teamwork to cause rates to fall. The food menu features a host of privately held culinary conglomerates, such as the teriyaki-laden Nikkei burger ($11), as well as more traditional dishes including fettucini carbonara ($15). Comfortable seating and contemporary décor bathe in the soft glow of intricate lamp arrays, making the space perfect for intimate dinners, boisterous bar nights, and after-hours trading of George Soros rookie cards.
Exchange Bar and Grill is featured on CNNMoney.com and Reuters Africa praises the business in international news. The New York Times, NPR, New York Post, and Los Angeles Times all feature the location as well. Nine Yelpers give a three-star average rating.
