Good bar design is based on a clear concept or vision. It tells a consistent story that is reinforced through its storefront, signage, logo, menu, uniforms and interior design.
Successful bar design attracts customers in, makes them feel welcome and relaxed enough to linger, creating a pleasant experience that encourages repeat custom.
A good layout is essential in successful bar design, affecting staff workflows and the customer’s overall experience. It should facilitate flow through a mixture of circulation spaces and seated areas, catering to the needs of different customers. Effective use of colour, texture, furniture and lighting create atmosphere and highlight the bar’s food, comfort and service.
