We are experts in delivering bar consultancy services for clients in the hospitality and events industry.
Our services include staff training, menu development, bar design, equipment sourcing, and systems implementation to help tackle current issues in hospitality. We deliver bar consultancy projects across the UK and internationally, for events venues, bars, restaurants and hotels. We understand that every venue requirement is different, so we work with a number of high profile bar consultants to help us match the right minds to every project.
Experienced Bar Consultants
Our experienced bar consultants have been working at the cutting edge of the UK bar industry for over 20 years and offer an unrivalled insight into the latest trends and innovations. Whether you are opening a brand new site, updating an existing venue, need refresher training for your team or want to implement a bar into an events venue to open a new revenue stream, we can help.
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, product lists, training plans and a project outline. Once agreed a scope of work is created and the consultancy delivery will begin.
It was clear from the initial consultation, the expertise which they had within their team. From creating our drinks programme, to training and implementation of new back of house systems, they were a pleasure to deal with and delivered results.
Consistency and standard of service is integral to a successful business. You are only as good as your last performance. At The Cocktail Service we train management and general staff, providing a comprehensive theory and training in bar service. This includes training on service standards, product knowledge, minimising wastage, dealing with customers and upselling. We can implement detailed operation manuals, quick reference guides and daily duty checklists to ensure the efficient delivery of bar operations in your venue.

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