Installing a bar for the first time, or renovating an existing one, can be a daunting task. There is so much to think about that mistakes can often be made that can end up being costly in the long run.
This is often the case when people order bar accessories, often the items are ordered unnecessarily which can waste money; Also, the wrong type of bar equipment is often purchased, again resulting in a loss of investment.
Understanding which items are essential and which items can actually save money and time can be really difficult, so here are some essentials and innovations that should make the whole process easier:
From cutlery to spirit meters to cocktail shakers, never stray from stainless steel. Stainless steel bar equipment will not only save time but also money in the long run.
Stainless steel is not only durable, but above all, it is easy to clean. Stainless steel bar equipment is dishwasher proof with antibacterial properties; If drinks or food have to go there, choose stainless steel, otherwise you may have to replace items too often or spend too much time cleaning bar equipment.
No pub, bar or restaurant can do without a glass washer. If you only have a small bar and don’t have the space for a full-size dishwasher or glasswasher, you can get compact, modern-looking small glasswashers that are easy to install.
Never consider washing glasses by hand. This will not only consume too much of the bar staff’s time, but you will never get glasses as clean by washing them by hand, as glass washers can reach much hotter temperatures than your hands can handle.
The cube of the bar
Never underestimate the importance of the bin behind the bar. So much rubbish can accumulate during one night in a bar: chip wrappers, cigarette packs and a host of other waste will be left behind by your customers. And because a clean pub is welcoming, you need to make sure you have a good-sized rubbish bin behind the bar, or risk the place getting dirty.
Again, if you only have a small bar, lining up rows and rows of bottles will take up a huge amount of space. Bottle display stands are not only space-saving, but also a great way to promote different products and advertising.
