How do you design and build a commercial bar? We'll discuss basic bar construction, such as footrest design, bar tops and supports, dimensions and other tips.
Bar Design Trends and Buzz
Architectural glass is one of my favorite finishes in nightclub and bar design. I covered many of the common applications of tempered laminated glass in an earlier post (refer below).
Have you heard about the new nightclub in town – the one everyone’s talking about? You hear stories such as this all the time and you’re especially going to hear about the one that has great design.
If your nightclub or bar design project is on a budget and you’re searching for a creative solution, consider using high-pressure laminates (or HPL’s). Some people may not know that another, less-familiar class of laminates exists (the low pressure variety), but for the sake of this conversation, I’ll simply refer to the former categorically as laminates.
I can hardly imagine anyone who doesn’t understand what a soffit is – at least the most common applications: a soffit is the “box” that sits between the top one’s kitchen cabinets and the ceiling, or the one that closes the area below one’s roof eaves. A soffit is technically the underside of any construction element, such as the area under a flight of stairs.
You’ve seen them everywhere and if you’re in the nightclub and bar sector, you may have even purchased them – railing systems. You will see railing systems commonly at your local Appleby’s, Chilli’s and Wendy’s.
