Classic and Comfortable, Club Style Seating is Back!

Upholstered chairs and bar stools are back in style to add a sophisticated and comfortable touch to your bar or restaurant. You may have seen chairs like this in a casino before, and there’s a good reason for that. Upholstered club seating is perfect for keeping customers comfortable and relaxed for hours on end.  

Restaurants and bars tend to gravitate towards this style of seating because of: 

  • Looks – There’s no denying how smooth these chairs and bar stools integrate with their surroundings. The unique vinyl colors and subtle details like tufting or seam channels make this seating a standout in your dining area or along your bar. It’s easy to lean into that vintage, luxe look with this kind of seating. 
  • Comfort – Not only does this seating look great, it’s comfortable to boot! Generously padded backs and seats let customers lean back every so slightly and relax. This thicker padding is perfect for keeping customers cozy while they eat and drink at your establishment for longer periods of time.  
  • Commercial Grade – This type of seating looks great and is comfortable, but more importantly for business owners, it has longevity. Since more durable materials are used, these chairs and bar stools are meant to be sat in for longer periods of time and they can hold up to the daily wear and tear of commercial environments. Not all seating is created equal with this type of frequency of use! 

Let’s take a look at some of the East Coast Chair & Barstool club seating options that will look great in your restaurant, keep your customers comfortable for longer, and have the durability to be used in your commercial establishment.  

Clyde Collection Chair and Bar Stool

The Clyde Collection was made with elegance, style, and comfort in mind. This padded back and seat with channeled stitching is ready for your restaurant customers to sit for extended periods of time, while the steel tapered legs add the perfect amount of extra strength without adding bulk. With three distinct vinyl colors to choose from, this retro-inspired seating will be an easy addition to your restaurant. 

Gladiator Basic 525 Bucket Bar Stool

Streamlined and simple, our 525 model adds comfort to your bar or high top tables that will fit into any budget. This bucket features 22-ounce vinyl, a waterfall seat edge, and padded back, all atop a durable steel frame. The 525 can fit into any design easily with its versatile silhouette. 

Gladiator 625 Bucket Bar Stool with PVC Edging

The 625 bucket takes everything about the 525 and makes it better with PVC edging. This added edging increases the bucket’s durability, especially when it is heavily used, by reinforcing the back edge seams that come in contact with the bar the most. While it has the same silhouette as the 525 model, the 625 kicks it up a notch with the reinforced PVC edging. 

Gladiator Modern 825 Bucket Bar Stool and Club Chair

Our most popular bucket model to date, the 825 bucket can be found in any type of restaurant or bar with its universal appearance, and is known for comfort. The ergonomic padded seat and back are connected with flex back construction, which helps give the bar stools or chair some wiggle room so customers can settle in comfortably. Molded to cradle customers’ backs, the 825’s back and seat are covered in 27-ounce vinyl, increasing their durability for extended use. Whether you’re looking for a bar stool or chair, the 825 bucket sits atop a 16-gauge steel frame that’s meant for commercial environments.  

Gladiator Tufted 925 Bucket Bar Stool and Club Chair

Crafted to be the focal point of any bar or dining area, the 925 bucket is so different from any other club seating on the market. With artfully distressed vinyl and deep tufting details, this vintage-inspired bucket looks right at home in any tasting room, coffee shop, or speakeasy. The tufting of this bucket enhances the comfort of the high density seat and back, letting customers relax in style. 

Gladiator Tufted Back 950 Bucket Bar Stool and Club Chair

Step into luxe seating with the look of the 950 bucket bar stool and chair! Customers will feel right at home in the 950’s molded seat and back. This bucket quickly becomes the focal point of any area of your restaurant with the back button tufting details. Similar to the 925, the 950 model boasts a vintage look that’s still versatile enough to fit into any establishment’s theme or layout.  

Club bar stools and chairs are an easy solution for seating that’s stylish, comfortable, and of course, commercial grade. Why just have one of these qualities in your restaurant furniture when you can have all three!
