Running a bar, nightclub, or lounge can be exceptionally profitable, but these are also difficult businesses to establish and maintain successfully.  Often, these ventures close their doors just a few years after opening.  There are a number of reasons this can happen, many of them having to do with interior design and furniture choices that conflict with the basic goals of customer comfort, visual appeal, and overall practicality.  Sometimes these issues can be resolved by using furniture that is tailored to the aesthetic and practical needs of your establishment.  Here are some ways in which custom metal tables, stools, and benches can help realize your bar ornightclub’s full potential.

Many nightclub and bar owners will invest thousands of dollars in the construction of their establishments’ bars, but will skimp on basic elements of design and interior architecture.  Good contractors are excellent at setting up spaces that look fantastic and add to the overall aesthetic, but only if they are given the proper guidance.  While some business owners may consider employing interior architects a luxury, it is actually a prudent investment when viewed in the long term, because they can help you select custom metal tables, stools, and benches that achieve your desired visual appeal without sacrificing an area’s flow.  This efficiency applies not only to the space slated for your customers, but also for your bartenders, hosts, and wait staff.  If you make the bar an area that works for both your employees as well as your customers, it will become a comfortable place for everyone.  Taking the time to really research your visual themes and hiring the right people to execute them will definitely pay off for you in the end.

Once you have decided on your aesthetic and have assembled a good design and construction team, it is time to make some determinations about what type of furniture you want.  At this stage, it is a good idea to let practicality be a priority.  For example, furniture made of metal is great for bars and nightclubs.  Not only is it sleek and visually appealing, but it is also exceptionally easy to clean and maintain.  For many nightclub owners, custom metal tables and stools are the way to go, because they will last for years without needing to be replaced.

After you have decided what materials to use, it is time to look into what kind of furniture you want.  This will likely be dictated by the space’s strategic layout.  Many club owners want to have a variety of custom metal tables and benches because they can be used to direct the flow of people.  Backless benches, for example, can be great for use in the center of a room because they provide your customers with flexibility of use and your wait staff will have an easier time navigating around them.  Your interior design team can help you select the right assortment of furniture for a visually appealing layout that still serves the wants and needs of your customers and staff.

Choosing to purchase custom metal tables, stools, and benches, also offers you the ability to visibly display your brand.  This can be a great marketing tactic, because it will pair you establishment’s atmosphere and excellent service with your brand image—a powerful association in the mind of your customers.  If this type of advertising is of interest to you, try looking for table, stool, and bench suppliers who are experienced at incorporating logos into their furniture.

It is easy to see how much the right choices in furniture can impact a bar or nightclub’s success.  With the right design team to help you select your custom metal tables, stools, and benches, you can see firsthand how building your brand can help you increase your profitability and ensure your business’ longevity.


            It is extremely important in business to create a brand and promote it well.  Every event night at a club, restaurant or bar is an opportunity for exposure of your business to the masses.  You cannot overlook even one night or event as a great opportunity to promote your business or product.  By using a bar product, whether it be bottle service, drink carrier or beverage cart as a branded promotional item you keep your business in th epresence of the customers and consumers without being intrusive.  It is a classy and subtle way to effectively market your business and subtly send the message that your brand is important, high end and desirable.  With a well designed logo printed on any bar product you can place that image in your customer’s mind and help create recall when your customer goes to make another purchase.  Crearting recall in your customer’s mind is an invaluable technique that will keep customers coming back to your product in the future.

            By using well made custom designed promotional bar products you can guarantee additional positive exposure for your business or product but that is not the only benefit.  They are also a cost effective, long lasting form of advertisement.  They are not a one time use, throw away product.  These products are made of quality materials that will last and continue to promote your business without putting in any additional money.  The return on this investment cannot be measured.

            Another great use for some of the promotional bar products could be as a giveaway at a trade show event.  Not only will such a giveaway generate interest in and of itself, but it will drive traffic to your booth, again creating additional exposure for your business.  Face to face time with potential customers is invaluable.  By offering promotional bar products as additional incentives for business or as giveaways, you can create business contacts that will be loyal patrons and sustain your business financially.  Another great reason to use promotional bar products at trade shows is to introduce a new product for your business.  Custom bar products can be the perfect way for your new product to be introduced to the market and create great exposure.

            Promotional bar products that have been custom designed with your logo will put your business right in front of potential customers and will generate interest.  By using a well designed logo and expertly made bar product that interest will turn to profit for your company.  Using such products not only help your business gain exposure to customers but it allows you to make invaluable contacts with vendors who will also be more eager to promote your brand and spread the word about your products.  Promotional bar products offer great return on a one time investment and can make a huge difference in your business bottom line.

Lots has been going on at Fry Fabrications to close out the year.

portable barsFirst, we’ve made some locking bottle displays and back bar bottle displays for both Crown Royal and Patron.  What makes these locking bottle displays and back bar displays unique is that they both illuminate the bottle via LED lighting and flourescent lighting to promote the bottle branding as much as possible.  These locking bottle displays allow for quick easy access and for the server to lock to prevent the customer from pouring their own glass (a growing law).  We’ve also been busy with the bottle service trays and bottle service sets, as well as locking bottle service trays and locking bottle service sets for various NYE parties around the globe.

We also closed out the year with some bottle display units for Galliano Wine – these bottle displays are designed with tiered shelving to and will look promoting the product in stores along the east coast.  Also closing out some bottle service trays, bottle service sets, and drink carts to Russian Standard, ABSOLUT, and SKYY Vodka.  Furthermore, we put some more carts in production from a company called “Rebelcart” who will be having us manufacture these beefy auto-detail carts.

2011 has been a record year for Fry Fabrications.  Very much looking forward to what’s in store for 2012!

As I write this blog I am relaxing…why? Well, Fry Fabrications has just completed and shipped one of our most complex items every! No, not a bottle service set, not a portable bar, drink cart, table, or kiosk. This was a Rickshaw cart for Bombay Sapphire bound to be displayed in New York’s JFK airport. What did this cart entail? Wooden wheels, bamboo weaving, bamboo shoots, custom handles with jewels, canopy, real bamboo countertop, shelving, locking door and yards of print media. Photos can be seen at All of this was made in about 2 weeks! It was a stressful 2 weeks for sure, but we’re very happy with the results and can rest easy that this will deliver.

portable barsIn other news we’ve been making a few custom bars for Diaego in Canada, a bowling alley in Michigan, and a local club here in Tempe, AZ called Fat Tuesdays. Also on deck are some pistol shaped bottle service sets for a Las Vegas club called “Revolver” as well as some custom bottle service trays for a new club in Hollywood, California called “Agency.” A custom folding bar was also created for Sobieski Vodka and a custom kisok with locking doors was made for “The Interior Shop” in Phoenix, AZ – this kiosk turned out extra special as the customer added some hot rod style pinstriping to the bar and it looks amazing. We have a few more projects potentially in the works as we begin to wind down 2011. Also in the coming weeks it’ll be time to prepare once again for the Nightclub and Bar Expo in Las Vegas where Fry Fabrications will be displaying our coolest products to date.

portable barsHere at Fry Fabrications, its been busy, yet productive since our last blog posting. We’ve produced and shipped some trade show pedestals that hold assorted electronic devices, we’ve done some bottle service pieces for Tequila Ambhar which have the most intricate laser work we’ve done to date – we’ve done lots of retail work for assorted outlets. With all of this, it seems that many of the jobs that we’ve been requested – bottle service, drink carts, tables, portable bars, custom work have all been with tight deadlines. I certainly can understand deadlines and why they’re there – yet they can also be scary (afterall it is Halloween today). If all the pieces of the puzzle don’t align perfectly, the deadline can easily be compromised. For example: We must first have the design in place, then the CAD drawings created, then the steel must be cut, fabrication labor performed (without any delay). Then there’s the finish sanding, powder coating, accessories, boxing/packaging, and finally shipping. One hiccup on any of these elements and those promises that were made go down the tubes. The deadlines also continue to get shorter and shorter adding more pressure…yet there are the times where I have to say “no” when our capabilities even at 150% cannot make that deadline possible. Experience has certainly played the most important role when it comes to giving the customer that promise of making that deadline – and knowing when to say we cannot comes from experience. Furthermore, even if a project is profitable, when a very tight deadline is given the potential for that profit is certainly at risk. Honesty is always the best policy.

portable barsFry Fabrications closed the summer out with some excited projects. First a custom 360 degreen octagonal shaped branded bench was delivered to the ADT corporate headquarters. Next some custom stool and table sets for both Mountain Dew and the Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey team. Next up we received the order for 25-100 “Blink” electric car charging station pedestals designed to be in electric car dealerships all over the country. We also received an order for very unique bottle service sets for Tequila Ambhar which have some of the most intricate laser work we’ve ever worked with – can’t wait to see how these come out. Next, we received an order just shy of 1000 pieces from Patron/Ultimat for their National Accounts. Very interested to see these pieces go into motion as they have a slightly different look than the orders we’ve done with them of the past. Lastly, we’ve received several retail orders from our friends at Industrial Ride Shop for various racks, shelving units, and even a fitting room.

In addition to all the great business we’ve been receiving, we aquired a new CNC break press machine. This machine has an adjustable back-stop and also has different speeds and settings to further expand the way that metal can be bent and formed to not only give the piece a unique look, but and also be performed quicker.

portable barsWhen we’re shipping our bottle service sets, portable bars, ipad kiosks and everything else that comes out of this shop we’re closing one door and opening up a new one. Once it leaves our dock, our job definately not over. First of all, freight is such a competitive industry – there are several carriers that we work with and all offer discounted prices yet once you receive your freight invoices you’ll find re-classes (density + size = classification which can drastically change the cost of shipping produt), re-weight audits, special services that were never requested, and then thorn in my side – damages. Each week several different freight reps stop in to see us and they all claim to offer the best rates and best services, yet it’s all really just a game with me and a war with each other. It seems that when customers order product getting good solid rates along with great service and peace of mind that damages won’t occur doesn’t exist. Furthermore, they all have their best foot forward in the start, but gradually things tend to fall apart. It’s imperative to us that we can offer our customers excellent rates that we can pass on, plus timely transit in a secure manner yet it never is quite what it seems. When the customer receives the product, if there are damages, or late deliveries, or additional hidden costs that is all a direct reflection of us as a business. Freight is a tough industry to manage and can be frustrating on our end when we place our product in their hands. I’m currently in process of training a co-worker here with the tasks, responsibilities, and this is certainly not a 1 day lesson. Technically, it’s not trailing, but more of how to play the game.
