How to Tell if a Bar is Right For You

Contrary to popular belief, determining whether or not a particular bar is well-suited to you is not an easy task. There are various factors that you have to keep in-mind, or you will be left with an establishment that is below-par. The rest of your party won’t thank you for making a booking at a place that is boring. Here at Moonshine Saloon, we have the necessary expertise to guide you on considerations that you should be thought-about during the booking phase – you can thank us later.

Do some Background Digging

This, it has to be said, is the first step that you should take when trying to determine whether or not you feel a bar is suitable for you and your friends. Although some people may think that this is a little overkill, the fact remains that if the reviews of the bar are lacking, you should take this as a warning sign to stay away. If you need an indication as to what you should look for from a themed bar, for instance, feel free to check out the Google Reviews written about Moonshine Saloon. These are all glowing in praise, and will hopefully offer a glimpse as to what you can expect from us. 

Check the Menu

Whilst it is true that personalised cocktails are not the only way for a bar to stand apart in a league of its own, it certainly helps. Rather than sell run-of-the-mill drinks that can be found on any menu, a bar should try to be different. If they have a running theme, you would hope that they incorporate this into their drinks. It does not matter if you are looking in West London or East London – if the menu is poor, take your business elsewhere.

Read About the Story

This, it has to be said, is a point that is specifically aimed at themed bars. These types of immersive experiences have seen a huge spike in popularity over the past decade, and this is a trend which only looks set to continue for the foreseeable future. When you visit the bar in question’s website, see how much information they give in relation to their storyline. If you discover that it is fleshed-out and offers in-depth details, you should have the confidence to continue.

Think About COVID

Whilst it might not be something that you want to have at your list of priorities, it would be unwise to completely disregard the coronavirus. You may think that the worst of the pandemic is behind us, but this does not necessarily mean that you should throw caution to the wind. Any self-respecting bar, themed or not, should still be trying to keep their customers safe-and-sound. If face masks have been removed, we recommend giving serious consideration as to whether or not the bar is right for you.
