Incorporating a bar into your restaurant fit out

A bar area is the perfect edition to any great restaurant space, providing patrons with a place to relax separate from your establishment’s main dining area, or wait to be seated during busier hours. Incorporating a bar into your restaurant is great for livening up your space, providing a unique-selling-point that will help you to stand out from the competition.
Below, our restaurant fit out contractors at Lake Contracts will discuss how you can create the perfect bar for your business space.




Location is the first and most important step to consider when building a bar for your restaurant. Taking into account the space that you have to work with, as well as the positioning of your bar space in relation to other areas of your restaurant, such as the main kitchen and dining areas, is vital for the overall success of your commercial refurbishment.

If your plan is  to provide patrons with a place to relax and enjoy a drink while waiting to be seated in the main dining area, placing your bar near the main entrance is an ideal option, helping your interior design to flow seamlessly throughout your establishment.


Design & Layout


Once the location of your bar space has been determined, you next need to consider the design and layout that will be best for you and the amount of space that you have to work with. You shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to building the perfect bar for your fit out, regardless of any limitations you may come across.

Our expert restaurant refurbishment contractors at Lake Contracts will work with you every step of the way to create a bar space that exceeds any and all expectations, meeting your exact requirements to leave you with a bar that you can be proud of.


The overall design of your bar will depend upon any theme or style requirements that you may have for your restaurant space, but no matter your design preferences, it’s important to keep storage space in mind! It’s important to make sure that you can accommodate all equipment necessary for a successful bar, such as liquor bottles, glassware, and ice buckets.
