If you run or own a bar or club, finding a source of bar supplies can help make bar keeping easier. From consumables like paper towels to the right glass washer, bar supplies are an integral part of day to day operations.One of the problems with operating a bar is making sure that drink measures are consistent and fair for every customer while making sure as little of it is spilt or wasted as possible. Bottled wines and spirits are the primary areas for concern regarding wastage. For bottled drinks, using a curved or straight pourer makes it much more difficult to spill any liquid as the flow is smaller and more controlled. For spirits, Gaskell and Chambers produce a series of measuring devices which allow you to hand the bottle upside down with the device in the top of the bottle. The valve mechanism allows the exact measure of spirit to fill the device. This can then be dispensed using a lever which is actuated using the glass underneath. Using one of these, cheap and effective devices allow you to get shots of spirits to customers extremely quickly and with exact measurements.A bar or club establishment requires a number of different consumable bar supplies to operate.
Paper hand towels always need to be available so ensuring you have a dispenser which only allows one sheet to be removed at a time will help make the most of your supplies. Napkins also need to be kept in good supply if you are serving food. Straws and drink stirrers are another common fixture in bars and clubs which will be used at a consistent rate.Firstly ensuring all glass wear is kept in top condition is a major priority. Your customers will expect professionally cleaned glasses and the best way to do that is to use a professional glass washer. These machines thoroughly clean glass wear much quicker than a standard dishwasher but from time to time you may also find that treating glasses with a powder detergent will remove even residues left behind after routine cleaning.Drinks trays have a series of holes in the top which allow run off of drinks to be collected rather than spilt an alternative to these trays are beer cloths but either is relatively simple to keep clean. Cooler buckets for wines add a touch of class which all adds to the customer experience.
By making sure that your establishment is always well stocked with the above bar supplies you can make sure that your staff are well prepared for those times where demand is high and your bottled drinks are used as efficiently as possible. By meeting your customer’s expectations and providing a few things they perhaps were not expecting, they will be happy to come back in future.
