Here are tips for trendy bars to keep bar customers stay and regularly visit the bar even if winter has chilled bar customers.

Heat up the space
But just because it’s about ready to snow doesn’t mean it’s time for boozing hibernation, have to look a little harder. With the help of heaters, warm drinks and a little creativity, drinking outdoors all the way ’til springtime will still goes on. A fire pit with room for a good 15 or so people to gather around — who needs heaters may be best for making bar customers warm. The heated space can be even having a retractable roof in case for rainy evenings. Adding glass walls also in the winter may help so that it will make it not quite outside anymore.  A warm and inviting bar with a tucked-in-a-townhouse kind of feel where there’s a fireplace and instead of wood, light is maybe given off by a tight bunch of tall pillar candles.
