Running a bar can sometimes be challenging as managing one goes beyond ensuring that customers have access to sufficient drinks. There are different factors that go into running a bar; here are some great tips that will not only make your bar the joint of choice among many but they will also will help you smile all the way to the bank.
Signature Cocktails Are Never A bad Idea
Coming up with a cocktail menu from scratch is bound to give you a competitive edge over others. This is a great way to create good memories about your bar among your audience. Having created these cocktails from scratch, you can price them a little higher which means more money for you.
There is nothing as disappointing to a client as asking for a drink only to be told there is none. This can be a good way to lose a client however loyal they might have been. To avoid running into such dilemmas, always know which drinks are asked for frequently. There is no need of having a fridge full of drinks that are not being bought; stock up more of what is popular.
Happy Hours And Events
If you want customers to troop into your bar every other evening after work, happy hours are a great way to do so. Events such as Trivia, Speed dating, karaoke and open mic nights are a great crowd puller. With good bartenders to boot, clients will always stay beyond the happy hour which means they will end up paying full price for the drinks. To ensure you get the best out of the events, make sure they are tailored to suit the demographic that you are targeting. Also, marketing these events on social media platforms will help in reaching out to a larger number of people.
Hiring the right bartenders also determines how successful your bar will be.
