Serving Up The Best In Bar Design
September 12, 2023
A favourite restaurant bar can feel dark and cozy, bright and lively, or anywhere in between. Attracting and keeping customers is all about a stellar bar design, and the experienced professionals at Canadian Restaurant Supply (CRS) can bring to life the restaurant bar you’ve been dreaming about.
Thanks to their expert advice and a laser focus on intentional design features, CRS understands what it takes to achieve the ultimate in ambiance and efficiency. Whether it be a pub location where the bar is integral to the tone of the business or a casual dining establishment, every commercial bar environment has its own set of design challenges to consider.
Along with the bar service equipment, the layout of a bar is critical as its success depends on how efficient your bartenders can be with the supplies and tools at hand. Let’s face it: the more drinks they can make, the more folks will order! But with bar design, bigger is not necessarily better. Bartenders must pull beers or build cocktails quickly in an ergonomic space that doesn’t require a lot of navigating. One bartending consultant recommends a ‘zero step’ perspective when it comes to layout and bar equipment design. In other words, an employee should have to take ‘zero steps’ to make any drink on the menu. That means the ice, glassware, liquor, mixes, and garnishes are all within reach – as well as perhaps a hand-wash and rinse station. It’s a mighty challenge but not impossible, and the CRS design experts keep this goal top of mind, especially with busy bars that may have three bartenders working at the same time who don’t want to cross paths. As well it’s important to ensure those snag points are eradicated. Snag points? Yes, a restaurant bar design must include strategically placed smooth edges so staff don’t snag their pants or injure themselves as they bustle around.
It is clearly both an artistic and scientific procedure to put together a perfect restaurant bar, so working hand-in-hand with architects, as well as mechanical and structural engineers, the CRS industry experts are there for you every step of the way. And don’t forget: their end-to-end bar design process also includes outfitting your bar with the latest in bar service equipment like bar tools and glassware. You’re in good hands. To date, CRS has managed successful bar projects as far north as Whitehorse and through BC, Alberta, and Ontario.
