Re: the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

We got the worse complainer* in EF (therefore including Zurich)




*well...there's the good complainers and the bad ones, I think that one is category 2. And I do love critics, opportunities for enhancement and complains...

Then don´t go there? Ah ok, yes, I forgot, you want to rant and complain anyway
I actually went once... and I left a negative review on tripadvisor!
I just fail to understand why are people willing to pay 20Fr+ for something that has a cost of goods sold of 0 or even negative ( since those bastards of widder bar get paid by the drink producers to serve their brands). And then even leave positive reviews! are those people mentally ill?

In this forum I've been accused many times of being a spoiled kid.. but it looks more like that those of widder bar and other corrupted establishments are spoiled, not I!

I love the Widder Bar! I doubt they pay nothing for their products. (They have some very fine whisk(e)ys, for instance. It has a nice atmosphere and they often have live music. Is it expensive? Yeah, sure, but you don't go there to knock back pints! If you don't like it, go somewhere cheaper!

I went to Grieder and they were selling plain t shirts for 295CHF. I would never pay that for a plain t shirt, so, guess what? I didn't buy one.

PS, they had tracksuit pants. Plain, no logo or printing or anything. 695CHF!!
The bottles might be expensive, but the quantites they serve in a 20Fr cocktail are so small that the COGS is next to 0

Dude! you fail to understand the concept of bars...
It's not to get cheap alcohol (there is denner for that) but to try to get laid in a socially acceptable way.
Hey sometimes it's cheaper than the whole dating thing

Even ugl...erm... body positive people, can play, they just have to order a few more of these expensive cocktails.

Simple!

Can we move on, now?
What's next, the worst MCDonalds ever, who charge for ketchup?

NEVER AGAIN!!!

I once try to buy one but it's clearly overprice.

I never understood people who buy tin foil hat while it's dead cheap to do it yourself at home, using price guarantee foil paper!

You can even add a few cogs from old device. Probably to make it look mechanical... or receive more signals...

Well the COGS also includes labour. Those Widder bastards are using unpaid slave labour. Could be even worse, the staff could be paying to work there! Bastards!

British politics?

MAY! We are in MAY!

Right...Not interested in politics, thanks but no thanks.

Politic is the worse topic ever. I guess it's not in Zurich, does it still counts?

Re: the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

COGS cost of goods sold. In the case of a cocktail it's the cost of the liquor andd other drinks you put in it. COGS does not include overhead costs.

Re: the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

As above, you are an idiot.

Next you'll be telling us Migros and Coop have the largest gross margins among European supermarkets.

Do you think maybe, just maybe, that the large gross profits you allude to are at least partially driven by having to pay these overheads you speak of. Like some of the highest property prices and wages in the world?

If you don't like it, don't drink there. Times have certainly changed: when I was a student, we certainly didn't frequent 5* hotel bars, at least partly because we knew we couldn't afford them.

No i don't think so. Higher overhead should be paid by higher sales volume, not by higher gross margins.

Re: the worst cocktail bar in the world is located in Zurich!

Can't believe I've had to waste my time doing this:

Cost of goods sold (COGS) are the direct costs attributable to the production of the goods sold by a company. This amount includes the cost of the materials used in creating the good along with the direct labor costs used to produce the good.

But the bar doesn't produce drinks. It buys and resells.

Just think about Coop. The Coop located at Zurich Hauptbanhof has the same prices as the Coop located in Zenthenhaus platz in Affoltern. Why is that? the coop at hauptbanhof has a higher rent, but the higher rent is offset by a higher sales volume.
