Outdoor Bar Lessons from Gartenfest

Gartenfest ImageDue to the fact that Germanic people have spread throughout the western world German celebrations are quite popular throughout multiple continents. So we’ll be looking at the Gartenfest, which is one of the larger ones. While it doesn’t happen in quite as many places as Oktoberfest it is worth learning about. We will of course be talking about that celebration later on as well but it is a bit overdone online today since practically every site talks about that.

Beer is the big connection to outdoor bars here. At the same time German food goes particularly well with many brews due to the strength, savor and salt connected to it.

Interestingly enough many older patrons who traveled to Germany really love this style of food. They take their families to bars and restaurants serving distinct dishes all the time. While this is declining as some members pass away it’s still a major source of business. So this is an important aspect you should keep in mind as many families are still quite interested in bringing their respected grandparents here. In some cases they may have developed a taste for it from their visits as well.

Outdoor Furniture here differs little from what you would normally see. You would however see many decorations for the event, as you would expect.

Having a wide variety of different dishes and activities is vital to creating a bar. Assorted drinks are a must-have for any bar, not just here. Having an international theme to these is a real draw for many people of course so try to incorporate that.
