How to create a pleasant beer garden of the pub, bar or restaurant

It's that time of year again where you have to start thinking about the garden in the summer. Here are some helpful tips:

first outdoor spaces Parks

First and foremost, the garden is connected to the Pub, a bar or restaurant to feel like a garden, and not the interior. Many entrepreneurs try to continue the interior finishes, exterior, which defeats the purpose of the atmosphere of a garden. The Garden should external features such as stone and brick and the furniture should look like garden furniture. In my travels I found the beer garden tree with film and fabric-covered bar stools – these areas are trying to look like interiors. Instead, try to embrace the outdoor garden atmosphere, to work with a multitude of materials and finishes that are available to transform a bland room for exciting outdoor experience.


Decide on a style or theme, then do some research.

Look at the buildings and walls – are there any existing conditions, which dictate the style or embellished?

keep the theme running through the interior of the exterior – for example, if there is an Art Deco interiors and try to incorporate Art Deco sculptures, tiles or lights outside rather than that of a general garden. Similarly, if a traditional pub and then make a lot bauble bauble via exterior.


weather considerations

The glow / heat factor: Use canopies, planting or colored glass diffuse.

Wind uses wind breaker. Anything can be designed to reduce the wind factor – Willow fence, metal or wood frames with glass or canvas wind breaker. She recently planned and trellis planter because the wheels, it was moved, which worked really well for my clients.

When deciding the seating position to consider what direction the wind is coming.

Rain: adequate coverage of smokers at the wrong time. especially in wet climates, a permanent fix solutions, such as glass, wood or glass in a frame will be much more maintainable than the soft top. Glass means that the light / sunlight coming through, which is important on those hot summer days. If it is too hot or too bright, it can be equipped with external blinds.


Before building anything important to know what your local regulations. In a description of the territory of Ireland clues, like a bus shelter where the roof area covering the walls, which are 50% open and 50% closed.


Divide smokers to non-smokers, if you have the space.

Opening windows will not be possible as the smoke can be pulled out of the interior and the customers do not like this.

Add ashtrays tables and a few buckets of sand to the place from which a cigarette can be taken in cleaning time.


Make sure that the views did not look good and bin / garbage areas or parking. Use filtering plants or wood fence to hide unsightly areas.


Again use outdoor fixtures that meet your style either modern or traditional. Lights are well adapted to all kinds of things and places. Try low or high plinth wall under outdoor LED rope lights in a nice warm light. Often you can find a fitting that will light up and down, so getting a double benefit. Choose lighting to create atmosphere without the headache of the customers glare. Candles always look fab in a garden area defined more glass jam jars, antique cages or screens or metal objects. If you have an outdoor bar that glow in the dark with candles and LED strip lights.

8. Open-air bars

Check local regulations in this – in many cases, open-air bars must be placed in a smoke-free area of ​​the passenger service would otherwise be the subject of the bar smoke inhalation. If the timber, suitable for outdoor use or teak wood like a small detail can make the water does not collect in the cracks. The use of outdoor wood means that you are going to commit to maintain. subject to all kinds of weather means that whatever finish you all need to be replenished regularly. Stone tops are great because the water runs off. Use closed cooling and security units under the counter. Ensure a permanent lid on the Bar and the customer to the counter can be used in all weather.

9. Planting

Flowers make people smile, so go crazy with them! They use colors to suit your garden palette. Always good to have some kind of a planter or pot just in case one of them does not. You can plant flowers anything until there are holes in the run off water – buckets, bicycles, beds … a look at these ideas. Ask your plumber to install an irrigation system wire runs to set a timer feeds all plants and flowers. It can be set to water at night so the water used will disappear by morning. Change the ivy and planters for small trees like box hedge in winter is an evergreen look.

I suggest you hire a designer will walk you through all of this. The experts advise that you should, and you generally agree with the designer to the level to get involved in order to meet the budget.
