Back Bar Pricing Pyramid | Überbartools™

Many bars and restaurants are not properly setup to maximize guest up sell.

It's important to set up a back bar to accommodate multi-tier pricing across categories.

One of the most efficient ways to set up a back bar is using a Back Bar Pricing Pyramid or Bar Grid.

In a nutshell the cheapest brands start at the bottom of a shelf whilst more expensive brands are graduated upwards.

A great example of well set up Back Bar is local Sydney icon Smoking Panda with a 6 tier pricing pyramid for their pricing structure ($9, $10, $11, $12, $15, $25).

The grid is replicated twice to allow for 2 teams of bartenders to operate behind a speed rail/back bar duality – in other words the back bar is mirrored twice so that bar tenders literally turn around to access the choice/brand required. No crossover nor wasted operational time during peak service times.

A great back bar creates a visually enticing liquor “palette” so that inquisitive guests  can relax and then  “initiate” bar tender conversations by asking questions.

Cutting Costs, Saving Money & ROI

Whilst cost cutting is a strategy which produces an outcome(s), does it longer term produce sustainable ROI (return on investment)?

Usually ROI should be measured by the costs of “doing something” versus  the “value” delivered.

When implementing a cost cutting program, it’s so important to conduct a 360 degree examination of impacts and consequences before implementation is considered.
