The differences between a restaurant and a tapas bar, can simply lie in the decoration and the furniture besides the type of dishes that are usual in these bars.
Today we are very demanding with everything as customers we are, and we choose very carefully where we go.
A good environment, some good music, a good stool, the cleaning, some good lighting and good service, among other things, make us go out for tapas more or less frequently and that we pay a little more for the same portions in other tapas bars where you can’t sit, or even have a smile from the waiter.
The decoration of the chairs alongside the lighting, do much to identify which type of bar we are entering. There are chairs and modern stools that indicate us that tapas will be more elaborate and with renovating style, other more classical chairs will tell us we will have typical traditional tapas but with high standards, painted chairs with flowers may indicate that it will be from Andalucía, or plastic chairs will cause the sensation that the tapas will be cheap and in low quality.
Sitting comfortably in the bar or a stool, hanging the bag or the coat, or even a quality napkin, will make the client show himself more perceptive to try the tapas and be longer in the local. Also, he will recommend your local to friends or family, and these at once will suggest it to others… Or you will simply remember that bar when you tell about the trip you attended.
The task of decorating a tapas bar is not simple, but a good combination between kitchen and decoration, will make your bar a custom brand.
