Open Concept cocktail bar opened its doors in St. Louis and the most captivating element of the spot is the way that it charges its customers. Rather than paying for each drink consumed, Open Concept allows customers to pay by the hour -- this includes mocktails and cocktails. Visitors can book their visits online or at the door, in which the time will start when they receive their first drink.
Following that, customers are invited to "drink all that you legally can." The owner, Michael Butler, explains that Open Concept is "the first of its kind in the region and the state [...] We decided to mix technology with that open bar concept." Butler also includes that tipping can be done line and this entire approach caters to the craving of convenience in modern-day experiences. Customers are able to check into the bar with their phones and receive messages of the time they have left.
