The bar & grill is a social place, great for a meetup with friends and a bite to eat. While these restaurants are usually casual, they certainly don’t have to be boring! In fact, bar & grill styles can run the gamut from vintage-themed to contemporary.
The most important consideration for this eatery style is comfort. It must suit diners as well as those who just come in for drinks. Bar stools with backs and tables large enough for dinner plates should be on the furniture inventory. And long communal tables make a great place for groups of friends or coworkers to congregate over a drink and some appetizers.
Since a cocktail or beer is often part of the appeal, try to keep sightlines to the bar open!
