The latest business idea to be spotted by the Springwise network, is a new bar in Amsterdam where guests can serve themselves from their own mini bars. The new trendy spot, Minibar, is due to open soon and will offer consumers a new “no-waiting-in-line” experience. Customers leave a passport or driver’s license with a staff member and are given an ice bucket and a key to their bar. There are a range of mini fridges that fill an entire wall, and vary in size and content-guests can choose from beer bars, champagne bars and mixed bars. Like many convenience stores, the mini bars are re-stocked from the back, leaving guests to enjoy the party without having to worry about anything running out.
This concept is something that could easily be implemented here in South Africa – I’m thinking trendy areas in Cape Town or Johannesburg! A great idea for entrepreneurs interested in the night life!
