What are the benefits of having a bar or bar station from Caterfab?...

Caterfab provide bar stations and fully welded bars to professional cocktail flarers and bar tenders across the country. Our bar stations and bars are manufactured to maximise the efficiency of the bar tender, making it easier for them to make the best drinks in the quickest possible time. They are set out in a way that gives the bar tender everything they need to make these drinks in one station rather than having to move around the bar for their juices, ice and condiments. This in turn increases the amount of drinks that can be served in any given time period. The bars are manufactured to a very high standard and made to last. They compromise of an ice well (with separate compartments for crushed and cubed ice), a single speed rail or piggy back speed rail (depending on requirements), a sink with under-shelf and a bin void. Everything you need within reach providing the best possible service to your customers. We also have variations of this classic cocktail station, with drop down sections for blenders, freestanding ice well stations, and prep stations with scrapping rings in the bar top for fruit waste, as well as additional shelving sections to house glasses.

At Caterfab we provide these sections in their entirety, there is no assembly required, they simply need putting in the appropriate place and you are ready to go.

What are the benefits of calling in the professionals such as Caterfab?...

At Caterfab we provide a bespoke manufacturing service to our customers so

they get exactly what works best for them and their bar tenders, in the space they have available. As we are the manufacturers we are able to produce these items at a competitive price and maintain exceptionally high standards. We make fully welded structures as well as slide under systems which give the customer the opportunity to have what they want within their budget. The slide under systems can help a bar owner cut costs by retaining their existing frontage and just replace the bar system behind.

Who have you worked with lately?...

We have customers all over the country. These include some big chain brands as well as small quirky bars and restaurants and we can cater for the needs of all these customers. Recently we have worked with Almost Famous, Simmons Soho and Kings Cross, Jones bar group, Home Sweet Home, Black Dog Ballroom and Kuckoo Chester to name but a few.

What trends can we expect to see more of in 2017?...

We have recently seen an increase in the requirement for rustic looking back bar structures from mild steel and weld mesh. The effect that this creates is a big trend at the moment and we think that this will continue into 2017. Continuing with this trend there is a high demand for blackened mild steel bar tops. As you can see from the pictures the effect is industrial with a modern twist. I’m sure you’d agree it creates a striking impact.
