Bar Consultancy - How We Work

Initially, we like to speak with clients to see the scope of work and the bar consultancy services they require from us. One of our bar consultants will then produce a proposal based on your requirements and budget, which will include initial renders, products lists, training plans and project outline. Once agreed a scope of work is created and the consultancy deliver will begin.

Bar Consultancy - Venues

We offer a comprehensive bar consultancy service for new venues which includes concepts, design, menus, equipment sourcing, bar management processes, route to market, recruitment and training. We work with the UK’s leading drinks brands to negotiate commercial deals if your venue will pour high volumes.

If you are looking to establish an in house bar at your venue or overhaul the existing operation to provide a significant revenue stream then our team can help. Events venues can be significant in terms of bar spend but also a logistical challenge in terms of event occupancy and the temporary nature of the space. We have the expertise after supplying thousands of events and operating our own venues, to deliver extremely profitable solutions.

Bar CONSULTANCY - Menus & Drinks Deals

As part of our services we produce on trend drinks menus for our clients. As part of our menu development, we negotiate pricing with route to market, cost drinks to correct GP %, create cocktail specs and training on drinks making. We assess the venue location and demographics to ensure the correct product mix is delivered and maximum profitability is achieved.
