Furniture for craft beer pubs
Craft beer pubs are having a moment – most towns and cities have a number of micro pubs, craft beer bars, or a place to grab a guest ale. If you own, or are in charge of managing or setting up such an establishment, you’ll understand that getting the “look” of your venue is important for your roadside appeal and customer retention. The right bar furniture and décor gives your pub its character, and is what your customers will remember (apart from the beer, and maybe the company depending on how good that is…). So, what should your bar furniture look like?
Many craft beer bars are known for their contemporary décor and industrial furniture
Often presenting an industrial look, well-known and hugely successful Scottish craft beer company, BrewDog, is leading the “craft beer revolution”. Across its venues, the interior is a far cry from traditional slouchy pub chairs and stubby bar stools – instead, brightly coloured seating stands out against exposed brick walls and contemporary lighting fixtures. We supplied Tagg bar stools to Liverpool’s very own BrewDog; with wooden backs and seats, these stools can be powder coated in any RAL colour or lacquer.
When acquiring your pub furniture, be bold and stay away from brown or grey – create something with the purpose of standing out. Our product configurator is perfect for this.
Standing out as a craft bar or brewery in a crowded market is important
Admittedly, as a furniture supplier to the hospitality industry, we cannot advise you on the beer you choose to serve, how you decide to keep it, and the bar snacks on offer. However, what we’re great at is furniture design. We truly believe that it can inspire your customers to return, and help to promote your venue across visual channels such as Instagram and Pinterest (read our blog on Instagrammable furniture). To help you to visualise your new furniture, our product configurator allows you to customise 7 different parts of a chair in:
• 420 fabrics
• 20 wood finishes
• 20 RAL colours
As a result, there’s potential for you to create a combination unique to your establishment, perfectly in line with your brand, concept, and what your customers want to see.
Remember – making sure your furniture is durable is important too
It’s not all about your aesthetic! Durable furniture is important for the safety of your customers. Read more about RIGA Testing, our hospitality furniture endurance standard adopted by many well-known UK brands.
Craft bars with a difference
Of course we love the interior of BrewDog, but here are some other interesting craft bars from around the world that stand out in terms of their décor or furniture. It’s time to get inspired!
• BarBarian, Lima, Peru
These publicans have got creative and decked a whole wall out with beer bottles. The burgers are pretty good too.
• Bacchus Bar, Birmingham, UK
It’s not strictly a craft bar, but it’s kind of like walking into Hogwarts if Hogwarts was a pub in the centre of Birmingham…
• Albert’s Schloss, Manchester, UK
The bier palace! We adore the brightly coloured flowers surrounding the entrance and apparently, there’s “push for Prosecco” buttons on every table.
• Open Baladin, Rome, Italy
This venue has numerous rooms, unusual décor, and great beer.
Outdoor furniture is made to withstand outside temperature and related environmental conditions. It is for this reason that moving indoor furniture outdoors would not be the best of ideas.

Imagine the scene. You have a meeting at a new company. As you step into the reception, you’re met with an office space that’s dull, grey and uninspiring.
