Setting The Bar – How to Incorporate Bar Rentals At Your Next Event

Setting The Bar

Set the bar at your next event!

Blending the right rental bar into any given events’ design will elevate the décor and ambiance along with the appropriate social flow. An open bar is one of the most frequented areas during an event and is usually the first stop for event attendees. It is necessary to recognize the importance of the bar size, bar placement and how many guests will be attending the event.

Size and space can sometimes be limited at an event location. One aspect is to determine the bar set-up. Smaller bar tops are more ideal with space for beer and wine. A full bar can require more elements that need to be factored in like glassware, liquor bottles, juices, sodas and fruit. This will need somewhat of a larger bar top and space to accommodate. Not to be forgotten are napkins, straws and décor for any bar you have. Once the size of the bar rental is determined, the placement of the bar needs to be put into consideration. Considering the guest count will complement the placement and flow of the event. If a bar is placed near an entrance it will limit the events flow and congest the area of the entrance. You will need to strategically place the bar into the event space that will draw guests to that area for the proper guest flow. Aiming to have effortless guest movement, opt to incorporate more than one bar into your event design. This will allow for less congestion in one space. The goal is to have a welcoming atmosphere and all food and beverage stations easily accessible throughout the event.
