THE TOP 6 PLACES TO STORE BAR GLASSWARE
Many will recognize the glass rack shown here – it’s one of the most common methods of storing bar glassware. Do these glasses look familiar? Many bars willhave as many as 10-12 types of glasses – not counting the multitude of wine glasses. Glass storage and easy accessibility are critical to operating commercial bars. Since glass racks can’t possibly accommodate all of this glassware, where are they normally stored? Here are the most typical traditional places to store bar glasses:
- Drainboards – shown here, this is probably the most common method of storing bar glassware.
- Corner drainboards as seen in this photo, this is exactly why corner drainboards are included in all of our bar plans.
- Back Bar – shown here on the back bar top, glasses are also typically stored in glass shelving above.
The above methods do not make entire use of the cube, which is mandatory for efficient bar design. Here are my top 3 favorite ways of storing bar glasses are as follows:
- Drainboard glassrack – as shown in this photo, here’s the Glastender model DBGR24 drainboard glassrack, which can facilitate two full racks of 20 glasses to be stored below the drainboard; this enables bartenders to remove and store clean racks straight out of the automatic glass washer, while also storing glasses on the drainboard above – a great use of the cube. This 24” x 24” unit can be purchased at HotelRestaurantSupply.com for under US$661.00
- Backbar glassrack – similar to the drainboard glassrack, a unit such as the Glastender model BGS24 can hold four full racks of glasses because it’s installed along the backbar. This 24” x 24” stainless steel unit can be purchased at HotelRestaurantSupply.com for under US$818.00.
- Drainboard cabinet – another spinoff of the drainboard glassrack, the unit shown here is the Glastender DBCB-12. What I especially like about this idea is its ability to maximize the most of narrow spaces. Available with- or without a door and in other widths, this 12” x 24” stainless steel unit from HotelRestaurantSupply.com can be purchased for under US$645.00.
Automatic glass washers with a low-temperature rinse are best for serving draft beer, as the glasses are ready immediately upon removal.
