2. Update Your Menu
Coming up with creative summer cocktails is a great way to let your bartenders show off their skills and to satisfy your customers. Using local produce can make drinks more natural, fresh, and fun! To be more cost effective you can incorporate ingredients you already keep in stock. Colorful cocktails that include immediately take on a summery feel.
3. Get Creative With Promotions
Remember, it’s summer! It doesn’t take much convincing to get people to come out earlier and stay out later. Give them a reason to choose your establishment over the competition. New summer happy hour deals get customers excited, whether they’re regulars or just checking you out for the first time. There’s also the potential to plan accordingly with other events happening in your community. Maybe there’s a concert nearby and you offer $1 off drinks for a few hours before. Deals are always a great way to generate new traffic.
4. Shape Up Your Outdoor Space
If you’re lucky enough to have a patio or a rooftop, make sure everything is up and ready to go as soon as possible. After a long and harsh winter, people are ready to get outside at the first sign of nice weather. Dust off the outdoor furniture and make sure nothing needs to be replaced. If it’s been a few years, maybe consider updating all of it. A fresh look for the summer never hurts.
