If you’re a bar, hotel or restaurant owner, learn the insider secrets of how much bar design, consulting, bar equipment design, draft beer system design and custom bar design costs.

How Much Does Bar Design Cost?

Which of these two bars (shown below) do you think would be more expensive to design? The answer is probably obvious. How about these two bars? The answer may not be so obvious. There are many factors that differentiate the cost to design any given bar. My goal in this video is to explain general pricing guidelines for professional bar design. Specific examples people bring to us have a great deal of variation, so the practical approach is to provide you with starting price points.

Commercial bar design can encompass many subtle and complex features that many may not notice or understand. There areIMAGE OF FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE COST OF BAR DESIGN several things we need to know to get started:

  • What will be the shape of the new bar – will the bar be L-shaped, rectangular, oval, curved or circular?
  • Will the new bar be a free-standard island bar or will it be against a wall?
  • Will the bar base be stick-built or will it be a modular bar die?
  • Will the new bar have a draft beer system, and if so, will it be a remote glycol system, under-bar direct-draw or wall system?
  • Do you wish to have a soffit and if so, will there be more than one and will they have multiple shapes?
  • Will there be a back bar and if so, how complex?

At this point, we’re just beginning to scratch the surface. Actually, I can think of at least a dozen other features that our clients request for their new bars and these all impact the price of our bar design service.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF BAR DESIGN SERVICES AND HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?

We offer three types of bar design services and a host of optional features:

  • Bar consulting
  • Bar equipment design
  • Custom bar design
