Capture the memories
If yours is the kind of bar where people head towards to celebrate – treat your guests with a professional photographer to capture the magic of the night. From capturing group shots with everyone in, to snaps of the birthday girl toasting her special night you will have a collection of great images for your guests to share, and to treasure. Create an experience to remember.
Warm up the dance floor
Does your bar need a boost early on in the night? Live music can be the perfect way to set the tone of the evening. Live music can get toes tapping and more importantly the drinks flowing. Book a singer to get the dance floor filled with current party classics, or perhaps takes your guests on a trip down memory lane?
Themed cocktail menu
Tie in special events with your cocktail menu to make your drinks list really come alive. From Halloween to Valentine’s, July 4th to Summer solstice, if it is hitting the headlines then create some hype with an interesting take on your shakes and a stirs.
Surprise & Delight
If someone is celebrating an anniversary, a birthday, a baby shower or even a divorce – help them celebrate in style! Create a personalised reserved sign, a birthday balloon or even a card signed by all the team – make your guest feel extra special by showing them you care
5. Preparation is key!
Most importantly, when something goes wrong great venues are prepared to step in and save the day. From safety pins to super glue, be set to save your guests the embarrassment of a broken strap or a dodgy high heel. When your guests are out to have a good time the smallest blister can stop the party dead in it’s tracks. Be a venue that doesn’t let its guests down. Be prepared to impress!
