It was on the main road, but up an elevator on the second floor. When we got there, the place was pretty empty, but we decided to get a few drinks anyway. My friend ordered us all a round of shots, and the girls said the place was famous for these fruity cocktails.
The waitress called us back, because I'd underpaid. I took another look at the bill, and scratched my head, trying to summon all my mental faculties in my drunken state. It turns out the bill was actually $700. We refused to pay, saying it was a rip off (the place didn't even look upscale, it was a fairly typical small bar). The girls encouraged us not to make a scene, the manager came out, the staff locked the doors and threatened to call the police.
Being good business school students, we decided to negotiate before the manager called in some thugs to have us beaten and robbed. We didn't pay the whole thing, but paid a lot more than we should've (I'm sworn to secrecy on the amount).
The next day I went back to the place sober to see what the hell had actually gone on. They were actually taking apart the bar- they were packing up. In a couple of hours there would be no trace the place had ever exsisted... except I took some photos...
