    Throughout May Hotel Designs will focus on two essential components to a hotel’s make up – bars & restaurants and catering equipment…

    If you want to get your company and products in front of an audience of interior designers, procurement specialists and hoteliers for a month of specially focussed commentary, this is a fantastic opportunity.


    With so many bars and restaurants in existence these days, how does a hotel bar or restaurant keep its guests from straying elsewhere as well as attracting non-residents through its doors? The answer is through its design and the atmosphere that design creates. Customers of all ages need to feel excited, stimulated and comfortable – getting the style of a hotel restaurant, bar or café right is vital, will it disrupt staff workflow? How do safety regulations come into the design process?

    Ultimately a hotel bar or restaurant can be a key driver in enticing new customers, make a significant contribution to the hotels revenue and support overarching brand values. This month, we look at some of the best examples in the world right now.


    Food matters – fact. By making your menus current, different and unique, you will entice your guests. Restaurant and bar aesthetics aside, you have to make an impression with what is on the plates you serve.

    Current trends see locally sourced produce a key component whilst the look of the food it just as fundamental – sharing food pictures socially is huge and for an hotelier, an opportunity to maximise on free advertising. In order to get food to the table, hoteliers have to have the very best equipment and tools for their staff. We will be focussing on the behind-the-scenes of hospitality equipment – one of the biggest sectors in the industry – from the best equipment to regulations, and best practice.

    There are plenty of ways you can get involved with these features, from supplying an opinion piece to working with us on a targeted mini-series.
