    how do they say it?

    please,
    how do you say when someone in the bar loudly says that they're paying beer for everybody?
    "the next round is on me"?
    thanks.

    For the whole damn bar, JC?

    Your example works, JC.

    Also,

    "I'll buy" when the order comes.

    "My treat" though this is often more for things outside a bar.

    "I'll stand you for a beer"

    hi,
    does "my treat" mean "I'm paying it for you"?

    Re: how do they say it?

    Yes.

    Here are a few ways to say that you will pay for the other person (as wel as yourself, obviously):

    I'd like to treat you to dinner.
    This dinner will be my treat.
    (When the check comes): My treat!
    Let's go get ice cream. I'll treat.

    Hurry and get packed, Barb. We fly out of Punta Arenas Airport on Monday the 26th. I'll meet you at Rickety Airline's check-in counter at noon.
