The cleanliness of a bar has a significant impact on business. Customers don't like to visit bars or restaurants with negative reviews about cleanliness. A well-maintained, clean, and fresh-smelling bar is highly likely to attract much more customers than an untidy one. A bar-cleaning checklist is a tool that helps in maintaining a clean and hygienic environment for your bar patrons.

A dirty bar or restaurant at the start of the day can leave you scrambling when your guests start arriving. This bar-cleaning checklist includes everything you need to check before beginning your shift, such as making sure the bar is stocked with fresh ice, mixers, and garnishes, that the fridge is stocked with bottles and cans, and that the counter, chairs and taps are all sparkling clean.
Bartenders, bar backs, and other restaurant staff can use this bar opening checklist to ensure that day's patrons have a good experience. This checklist also includes tasks that should be completed throughout the bartender's shift and items for closing the bar, such as sanitizing the bar top, menus, and soda guns and wiping down all liquor bottles and taps.
Using paper checklists can be messy and inconvenient, especially when you're working in a bar where paper is likely to get spilled on. With a bar-cleaning checklist app, your restaurant staff can download the checklist to the mobile device they're already carrying and conveniently check off each item as they go, and include photos to verify that the bar is cleaned to your restaurant's standards. You can even set up the app to notify the restaurant manager if the bar runs out of liquor and needs to be restocked to keep things running smoothly.
