Can you tell me how much you pay for drinks in your local pubs or nightclubs please. Im very curious at how much drinks are elsewhere.

My drink is Vodka and Coke and I can get it for 1.10 for a double in the clubs where I drink. Smirnoff Ice is 1.40.

When I was recently at Blackpool it cost me 3.20 for a smirnoff ice :eek: Now is that expensive to you lot ? I nearly fell on the floor when I was charged that much.

By the way im from Durham area :D

Thursday nights are a pound a drink in the club I go to, Friday and saturday nights its 12 all inclusive, thats getting in, cloak room and all your drinks. In the pub i got to its 1.30 for a bottle of smirnoff ice/reef, but most places are 2.50.

Oh, in plymouth btw.

In my local pub, Smirnoff Ice's are 2.50. Archers and lemonade is 3.20. I wish I could pay 1.40!

Where did you pay 3.20 in Blackpool? In a club?

Beleive it or not, The Pier Bar. The one just up from the tower.
I had to drink there because thats the only place I could find where kids could go, and they had an entertainer on for them.

Dont come to Glasgow if ur wanting a drink! The clubs here charge a fortune for a drink, 3.80 for a Smirnoff Ice and 2.50 for Aftershocks or Sambuca. Im going to a wedding in a posh hotel 2moro nite so I'll let you's know what the prices there were like, they'll probably be ridiculously funny :D

I dont know whether Whowhere will agree but the drinks in Lanzarote are really cheep and you get spaklers in them all :D although he amost fainted when he spent a fiver on Caffreys in linekars bar!

Next Friday me and my Boyfriend are going out into Plymouth with some mates so thats should be cool we are going all inclusive so to say (sounds like a package holiday :D ) think its 10 on the friday. We went out breifly tonight and my drinks were 1.80 for reefs and his i dont know he had a pint.

I have noticed how it varie from place to place there are about 7 pubs in Torpopint where i live and one pub can be as much a 2 cheeper than another.

But like *Groovaybaby* said is realistic.

:eek: Fucking hell! Living in london sure costs a shit load! I'd be lucky to get a double for less than 3. A vodka and redbull in a club... less than 5 is unheard of, 8 is more like it. Smirnoff ice probably about 3

It depends on where you're going here
At my fav. Pub Smirnoff Ice is about 2,50, a Bacardi Breezer there costs about 3,40 so I decided to drink that just at home because it's about 1,10 at a shop. At the Pub I just drink beer 2 - 2,5.
A few days ago someone told me about a club where you even pay for a small glass of cola 3,20 :eek:
No thank you - I prefer my Pub :)

Pint - Sfr8 = 3.50
Bottle - Sfr6/7 = 3.-
Alcopop - 3/4

Cheapest way is to find a bar outside of Zurich.

1.50-2.50 a pint
2-4 for a bottle
1.6 for a shot for a drink, e.g. vodka, whiskey e.t.c
0.2-0.8 for the coke that goes with it
2.5-Redbull :eek:

Devil, Lanzarote wasn't as cheap as I hoped it would be. I was usually paying 2.50-3.50 Euros for a bottle of Strongbow, very few places did pints.
On the bar crawl one place had the nerve to charge 5 euros a bottle.

We found that if you drank spanish beer it was a lot cheaper.

Stuff like Dorada and tropical was cheeper. the cocktails were really cheap.

I didn't drink that Spanish muck :D

I would have done, but I can't stand beer (no i'm not gay!). I drink sprits or cider, usually both which makes me throw up everywhere lol.

im from hertfordshire and i usually pay 2.80 for a bottle of bud or a smirnoff ice in the pubs and about 3.50/4 for the same in a club. I love going to the pub but it costs some much money though. Taxi's are the biggest rip off i think though. I live not even 2 miles from my town centre and it costs me 7 for a taxi home in the day and a tenner after 12! It's cost me 25 to get home from watford before which isnt exactly far from me.

In the pubs that think they're really somthing, it's about 2.50 a pint and 3 for a bottle. But if you look around there's alwyas buy one get one free offers, or you just get pissed first. There's a bar with a game, you go up[ to buy your round and press the button. There are 5 flashing squares, the light stops on one of them. Two are full price, 2 are half price and one you get the round for free.

See, one of the joys about being a student, is student union prices. :D
50p vodkas, doubles for singles, about 1.10 special offer beer (which is usually fosters, bluergh), but it does depend what night you go out. Even without the offers, drinks don't tend to be hugely expensive. I'd usually spend about a fiver on a round of 3 drinks, say 2 pints (usually stella) and a vodka and orange.

ok, we'll get the pathetic americans prices in here now...

about $10-$12 for a 6 pack of beer
around $40 for some hard liquer
about $20 for a 6 pack of malted drinks or not-so-hard but still tastes like shit drinks.

Im in Ireland so the prices are in euro's. Drink is really dear here though. 4 at least for a smirnoff ice or other alcopops. They are 4.50 in the pub i work in. Its quite strange cos a glass of lager of cider is cheaper than a glass of coke in most pubs! Its 2.20 ish for a coke, so 4.40 for a pint of coke, and pints of lager are about 4.
