Every bar owner knows two things about running a bar: Keep the drinks flowing, and keep the bar stocked. Keeping all of the supplies you need is now easier than ever with our handy checklist for bars and restaurants.
Set the scene at your bar with functional and stylish paper coasters to slide under each drink you serve. From coasters with friendly welcome messages to elegant designs you’ll be protecting your bar from messy spills and condensation rings. Coasters are a more stylish option than paper napkins, and your guests will appreciate the extra effort that you put into making them feel at home.
For cocktails and specialty drinks, keep straws and stirrers stocked to make preparing and serving drinks easy. Available in different sizes and colors, you have plenty of straw and stirrer options to help you serve and prep any kind of drink, from traditional screwdrivers to daiquiris and margaritas. You can also keep a box of fun assorted paper fruit straws on hand to add a little something extra to special cocktails, or for celebrations at the bar. Birthday parties and bachelorette celebrations will love the extra-special, vintage flair. Foil firework straws also add a fun pop to various events.
Serve up fruit and olive garnishes with the right beverage pick to add a fun and unique touch to your bar’s favorite cocktails. Use prism picks to give martinis a sophisticated finish, and spear sliced citrus and berries onto plastic sword picks or fun party picks to add some colorful flair to fruity concoctions. Or, make a natural statement with bamboo picks that offer an elegant look to artisanal cocktails. Try different pick combinations with various drinks until you find the right arrangement that matches your style and brand.
Colorful beverage napkins, available in navy blue, kelly green, black, purple, red, yellow, and white are a staple of any bar, and give your guests an easy way to mop up small drips and spills, as well as place to set their used stirrer or straw. With so many color options, they’re an easy way to keep the color scheme of your restaurant or bar consistent.
With a little bit of planning, you can make sure that your bar is well stocked and prepared for daily service.
