HOW DOES THE BAR DESIGN PROCESS WORK?

No doubt about it, the internet has made doing business much more efficient. Nowadays we pay our bills without the need forBCPH AUTOCAD PLAN checks or the U.S. Postal Service. Amazon has become the world’s largest retailer and we order dinner, jukebox music and cab rides from our phones. For the most part, all of this technology has made life easier and more efficient. What’s the reason consumers have bought-in to all of this? Certainly, we’ve all become more trusting of technology, but brand trust has been critical, as well. Given all of the above, why shouldn’t bar design offer people a similar advantage? The answer is, it already does! We’re definitely in-step with the technology and in case you’re unaware, we’re building public trust by being near or at the top of nearly every search category in our vertical on Google and YouTube. We’ve also earned the respect and trust of numerous owners and architects. As a result, of the countless bars we’ve designed over the past 14 years, I actually cannot recall the last facility I’ve seen before completing our work. With rare exception, technology has enabled us to bi-pass the costly site visit. We successfully design bars for people the world over and on rare occasion we’ll show-up to see the completed project. People’s acceptance of ecommerce has certainly helped us get to this point, but the question remains: ‘How does the bar design process work’? Let me explain, as we have many options in modern bar design:

  • The most common method we use to design commercial bars begins with an architect’s electronic AutoCAD file. When an architect has already drawn a building and provided us with the general area for the intended bar, our job becomes very easy.
  • The next most common method is a scaled plan of the existing building. A PDF is our next best document for commencing the bar design.
  • If the subject building is older and the owner has a blueprint, this is still a highly-reliable method. Simply have the blueprint scanned and emailed to us. The dimensional information may not be perfect, but we’ll identify the critical dimensions that will need to be confirmed by the Owner or their contractor.
  • A hand-drawn sketch is our next most-reliable method. Believe it or not, the sketch shown here was the starting point forSHERATON ARLINGTON BAR one of our recent bar equipment designs. The hand-drawn sketch is fairly common and easy to implement. Obviously, the subject sketch didn’t provide much information, but at least it was a solid starting point. I was also given these photos of the bar die, which had already been constructed; these provided a sense of the approximate layout. In these situations I generally prepare my own sketch, as shown here, and requested that the Owner’s general contractor confirm the measurements that I labeled. The next day the general contractor sent me an email with the information I needed.

Subsequently, I was then able to move ahead and complete the bar design, shown in this plan, as follows:

  • Bar equipment plan.
  • ADA accommodation.
  • Architectural section views
  • Bar equipment schedule.
  • Manufacturer’s equipment cut sheets. 
  • Bar top sizes.

As you can see, we have many proven methods for establishing the size and all necessary details of your new bar.
