Here’s what makes this lounge stand out. Since it is a stock exchange cocktail lounge, “prices of items from appetizers to cocktails rise and fall with the interest of their fellow patrons (or “traders”) in real-time,” according to a press release.

In order to execute this concept, the lounge uses a software that’s designed to mimic the stock exchange and create a market pricing system.

You’ll see this system work via ticker boards that are located throughout the 4000-square-foot space. It will update the prices of food and drinks based on the current popularity.

The dining space sits about 95 people and its interior is described as being full of “rich textures and sleek finishes” for that luxurious vibe.

If you’re excited to check it out, according to its most recent Instagram post, they are now accepting reservations for its grand opening weekend starting April 28th.

See ya’ll there!
