A new Mississauga pub turns the stock market concept into the ultimate drinking game.

Billed as Ontario’s first stock market-based pub, The Sauga Bar X-Change opened at 3920 Eglinton Ave. W. in Erin Mills on Sept. 24.

In this Indian resto-bar, food and drink prices change based on real-time demand much like the stock market–meaning prices fluctuate with the number of orders.

“Investments will lead to instant happy returns,” the bar writes on Instagram. “Kindly invest wisely.”

Prices of food and drink rise in direct proportion to its consumption over a period of time at the bar, Sauga Bar X-Change’s menu explains.

“Every increasing peg/pint/shot/glass/meal ordered by a patron increases its value margin, to brought down once again if time is on your side (if orders for the same drink/food decrease over a period of time).”

There have been similar concept bars in London, England and New York City.

The Sauga Bar X-Change has mainly Indian fare on the menu with spicy snacks such as masala fries, tandoori momos and tikka dishes. Main dishes include curries, shahi paneer, chana masala, and chicken korma.

The atmosphere is a party vibe with large screens listing the changing prices, neon lights and a bull horn logo.
