Underbar and backbar equipment

Underbar and Backbar Equipment

The major pieces of underbar equipment have surface of stainless steel which is durable, cleans easily and is unaffected by chemical cleaners needed to kill bacteria.

It also looks nice and easily takes a high polish.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

Work surfaces of underbar equipment are a standard 30 inches high, with a depth of 16 inches to the backsplash at the rear.

Units from the same manufacturer fit side by side and give the appearance of being continuous.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

Each piece of equipment is either on legs 6 or more inches high, for access to plumbing and ease of cleaning, or else flush with the floor.

The legs have bullet feet (feet tampered like bullets) for ease of cleaning.

The feet are adjustable to accommodate uneven flooring.

Glasswares

Glasswares


Bar parts and equipment lay out

The glassware you use in serving drinks plays several roles.

It is part of your overall concept: its style, quality, and sparkle express the personality of your bar.

As functional equipment it has a part in measuring the drinks you serve, and it conveys them to your customers.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

It is a message carrier: glass size and style tell your guests that you know what you are doing – you have served each drink ordered in an appropriate glass.

It can be a merchandising tool; subtle or flamboyant variations of custom in glassware excite interest and stimulate sales – oversize cocktails in wine glasses or beer mugs coffee drinks in brandy snifters, special glassware for your own specialty drinks.

A tumbler is a flat-bottomed glass that is basically a bowl without stem or foot.

Its sides may be straight, flared, or curved.

Various sizes and shapes of tumbler are known by the names of the drinks they are commonly used for: old-fashioned, rock glass, highball, collins, cooler, zombie, pilsner. Glass jiggers and shot glasses are mini-tumblers.

Footed ware refers to s style of glass in which the bowl sits directly on a base or foot.

Bowl and base may have a variety of shapes.

Traditional footed glasses include the brandy snifter and certain styles of beer glass.

Today footed ware is also popular for on-the-rocks drinks and highballs. In fact, any type of drink can be served in a footed glass of the right size.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

Stemware includes any glass having all three features – bowl, foot, and stem.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

A fourth type of glass is the mug.

You can think of it as a tumbler with a handle or as a tall glass cup. It is usually used for serving beer.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

In selecting glasses, size is a better guide than the name of the glass, since a glass with a specific name will come in many sizes.

Buy glass sizes that you will never have to fill to the brim; they will surely spill.

A glass for dinner wine should be only half full, so the drinker can swirl the wine around and appreciate the bouquet.

A brandy snifter of brandy is served so the customer can savor the aroma.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

In making your glass selection, remember that glassware is about the most fragile equipment you will be using.

Consider weight and durability. Consider heat-treated glass if you use a mechanical dishwasher.

Consider design and buy glasses that do not need special handling: flared rims for example, break easily. Then consider the breakage factor in figuring the numbers you need.


Care of glassware

Care of Glassware:

  • Handle glasswares with care

  • Do not wash glasses mixed with plates or spoons

  • Never used it in scooping ice

  • Throw chipped or broken glass

  • Do not pour hot liquid with cold glasses

  • Never stack glasses

  • Do not handle glass in all together

  • Always handle glass by the stem


Some general considerations in selecting bar tools and equipment

Some General Considerations in Selecting Bar Tools and Equipment:


Bar parts and equipment lay out

Look for Quality. It makes very good business sense to invest in high quality equipment for your bar.

There are a number of reasons why:


Survival

Survival

Quality equipment will last longer and will withstand better the wear and tear of a high-speed operation. Heavy-gauge surfaces will resist dent, scratches, and warp. Heavy-duty blenders will better survive the demands of mixing frozen drinks. Quality glasses will break less easily than thin brittle ones.


Function

Function

High-quality products are less likely to break down.

Breakdowns of any kind hamper service and give a poor impression of your operation.

If your pourer sticks, you’ve got to stop and change it. If your corkscrew bends, you may crumble the cork and loose your cool as you present the wine and the customer may refuse it. If your ice maker quits, you are in real trouble.

Repairs or replacements can be frustrating, time-consuming and costly. Quality products, moreover, usually come with guarantees.


Appearance

Appearance

Quality products are usually more pleasing to the eye, and are likely to maintain their good looks longer.

Cheap glassware becomes scratched and losses its gleam. Cheap blender containers get dingy-looking. So do work surfaces.

Since much of your equipment is seen by your customers, it is important to have it project an image of quality, cleanliness, and care.


Ease of care

Ease of Care

High-quality equipment is likely to be better designed as well as better made.

This means smooth corners, no dirt-catching crevices, and dent-free surfaces that clean easily.

It all makes for better sanitation and better appearance.


Bar parts and equipment lay out

Like everything else in life, quality cannot always be judged by price.

For equipment quality, look at weights or gauges of metals (the lower the gauge, the thicker the metal); at energy requirements, horsepower of generators, insulation of ice bins and refrigerated storage, manufacturer’s warranties and services.

Consider the design features of each item in relation to its function and sizes and shapes and capacities in relation to needs.
