You might be wondering: what’s the difference between a bar and a pub?
It can certainly be a tricky one to decipher, as a bar setting is extremely similar to a pub setting - but there are some fundamental differences.
For example, the more traditional public house tends to be the focal point of the community, found in a village or small town, whereas bars tend to be found in more built-up areas aiming to catch the after-work crowd and weekend drinkers. From wine bars to cocktails bars and more, there’s a lot on offer out there!
Bars tend to have a steady flow of customers, hopping from one venue to the next, and so the design and décor can be quite different from that of a pub. As a result, bar furniture can differ slightly to those items needed within a pub.
Pubs often feature traditional furniture items, predominantly made from dark woods. However, bars tend to follow the latest trends when it comes to design, bar equipment, bar accessories and bar furniture. There are many types of looks permeating the bar industry, from industrial and retro to contemporary and vintage.
Of course, tables and chairs will always be needed within a bar as to are comfortable seating areas such as sofas and tub chairs. However, there will also be an abundance of bar stools for those customers waiting near the bar area.
