Stock market crashes are usually a bad thing. But not at a new Manchester club night. When the market crashes at The Trading Floor, it’s good news because your drinks get cheaper.

At The Trading Floor, drinks prices are controlled by a stock market-style index, with the action centred around huge digital screens set up like a stock market trading board.

Each trading board displays the price of drinks such as beers, prosecco, vodka and gin  (plus all the other usual bar staples).

Prices fluctuate throughout the night according to the popularity of each drink. The most popular drinks during the evening rise in price as they continue to be bought, whilst others drop in price.

Once products hit a certain point, the market crashes and drinks prices are re-set to a low starting point.

Drinks prices rise and fall like the stock market at this new Manchester club night I Love Manchester

Launched by local nightlife app Viper, the night is the first of its kind in Manchester, with similar concepts have already become popular in London, New York and Barcelona.

“It’s a new concept for the city – there’s no other night out there quite like The Trading Floor and we anticipate it will add enough new spark to that midweek hump to get city centre workers heading in our direction from the office, as well as providing something very different for those coming into the city centre later in the evening,” says Viper co-founder Craig Davies.

The Trading Floor will take place in Impossible‘s main bar every Wednesday from 6pm. And with this week being Halloween, they are planning on going full American Psycho with a spooky special.

And unlike the real Stock Exchange, The Trading Floor is all about old school RnB cuts, taking you back to the halcyon days of the 80s/90s with an additional sprinkling of noughties anthems.

Tables can be pre-booked using the Viper app and are priced at £30 per person with a minimum of four per table, which gets you a bar tab and a table for the night.
