Sometimes it happens that we are raving about this or that bar and when we meet him, is a fiasco. Other times, more by circumstances than by will, attended a place that gives us a bad feeling and we end charming. More than the prestige, the decor or the good reviews of the inner-city guides, our attachment to certain bars is due to a number of key factors.
Then the 10 features that make a bar infallible.
Care quality and selection of drinks, even above diversity. Some bars are experts in certain drinks , the master and his fame attributed to them. But when one asks a tequila and a bloodstone, is that the latter is not even natural. Or that the portions are generous but ill-prepared cocktails. I prefer places with a small menu and dutiful to a huge list of common options.
Attention to detail. The glassware, for example. Cups and glasses just are the touchstone for some drinks. That, the bathrooms are nice (and, obviously, spotless), no more diners of which can accommodate local ... Details, then.
Concept. It need not be the most original proposal world universe, but, hey, it's be clear about what is offered to the customer and from there to make your choice. Some bars, for example, get more hook most popular bars in the season, just because they stick to the concept that they themselves raised. A huge local without matching furniture, with medium light and fun music may work better than the new trendy bar talking magazines.
Congruence musical. And a good sound. The bar owners have to invest in that. No one has better than prescribed playlist filling and the year of the broth. The DJs job is to interpret the mood of the guests and ad hoc program music.
Experienced Bartenders. And, are handsome, much better.
Concurrency interesting. I like the bars where one can find diversity: people of different ages, sexual preferences, ways of dressing. In contrast, those in which everyone seems clones, bored me greatly.
Attentive service. I understand it must be difficult to work serving drinks and cleaning tables, but always return to the places where the waiters, people at the entrance, the bartenders are friendly. They have to want to be our friends, like Starbucks cashiers (who just want to respond, "No, I do not care to forge links with you, I just want to give me my coffee as soon as possible"), but appreciated when the bar staff is grumpy. Another thing is to be thanked (and required): respect to the last sip. I hate when they take my beer before I have finished the.
Adequate lighting. This has everything to do with the concept. The dark bars, where the face of the next one fails to perceive, are a thing of the past.
Fair Shares. I prefer the bars smaller, cozy kind of lounge-type giant. Anyway, this is another parallel to the concept. No matter if it is small or large, that there is enough space to exist.
A good PR. Some are so emblematic publirrelacionistas spread by halo bar its cosmopolitan and fun. But is not that the owners hire divas or cocky and sobreperfumada people, but that the RP as well as being helpful and attentive customer, convey a pleasant attitude.
There are bars that we like and do not have all the virtues, but would not work if they have at least some. The truth is that if we can identify it with the 10, this is a bar worthy of our respect and, most importantly, our diligence.
