To put it simply, a dry bar table is a bar table that is 110 cm compared to a standard commercial table which is 75-76 cm high. Dry bar tables are not limited to a standard looking bar table. Here at B Seated, your dry bar tables can be customised in a variety of different makes, styles and, designs, from an intimate round table for two through to larger square tables which accompany sitting or standing. Our tables are designed to be placed in tight corners and awkward spaces where a normal table cannot usually fit. Recently, dry bar tables have started to become popular because they can be used in a variety of different environments. They are often heat proof, scratch resistant, don't fade easily or crack. These are popular in fast paced environments because they are very portable and can be moved around to accommodate your traffic. Importantly, dry bar tables are strong and durable which outlasts many other tables. [caption id="attachment_1623" align="alignnone" width="919"](image) Bar Tables at Kingpin Crown Casino[/caption]
Different types of bar tablesWhen looking for a bar table, you will need to consider the type and form you are after. In order to accommodate for your customers you need to think about the type you are after. Are you after a one that people can stand and place drinks and food on? Or perhaps a small round bar table that allows people to sit and chat? These can range from a rustic, outdoor bar table to a traditional, indoor modern bar table.

RusticRustic style bar tables have recently become popular as more and more people find that the unique and individual designs of custom timber pieces add creativity to their venue. Our range of recycled, natural timber bar tables blends beautifully with our contemporary bar stools. A popular choice is our Rustic Chunk Bar Table, which can be customised with multiple finishes to suit your style.

Where will these be used?
IndoorsWhen looking for indoor bar tables, you will need a table that sparks curiosity and sophistication but also combines form and functionality. We recommend our popular Solid Marble Table Top, as this doubles as a workstation for your customers, or our Bayview Table Top if you are looking for a table that can be used for cafes and restaurants. B Seated projects that have used indoor bar tables include Cod's Gift and Collins Square. [caption id="attachment_1638" align="aligncenter" width="840"](image) Bayview Bar Table[/caption]
OutdoorsOutdoor bar tables need to be weatherproof and durable. The last thing you want is a one that becomes damaged in the heat or falls apart in the rain. Non-slatted and solid timber table tops will split outdoors, we strongly recommend our Slatted Timber Table Tops for outdoor use. As mentioned in our last blog post, these are extremely versatile and can be used in multiple environments. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="1000"](image) Slatted Timber Table Top[/caption]
Height of Bar TablesThe most common height for a dry bar table is 110 cm. This height has been determined to be the most ergonomic and the optimal height for a table that services both a seated and standing user. This height works well when a person is standing on one side and another sitting on the other. For example, a bartender preparing drinks whilst on his feet and the customer enjoys the drinks while on a seat. These can double as a place for people to lean on while they wait for the rest of their party to arrive.

Cafe FurnitureCafe Chairs are an important part of your venue, as they will determine what type of customers you are after. For example, in a CBD district, your customers will likely be staff looking for a quick coffee before heading back to work. In this case, an industrial metal chair is a good choice, as it offers a fast paced environment and quick turnaround as these chairs are designed to be sat on for short periods of time. Here are some of our favourites that we believe can be used for any type of cafe! [caption id="attachment_1552" align="aligncenter" width="919"](image) Wooden Furniture at Fratelli Fresh[/caption]
Bentwood ChairsBentwood Chairs fit into any venue with ease and simplicity. Our most popular Bentwood, the A-18’s are perfect if you are looking for a chair that is elegant at any time of the year. If your cafe is sticking to a certain colour palette, our A-14's are completely customisable right down to the colour of the chair sock. B Seated has worked on many projects that feature Bentwood chairs, including The Mill Hotel, Three Beans Macquarie and The Atrium at the Grounds of Alexandria.

Outdoor Bistro ChairsOften made out of wicker or rattan, our range of Outdoor French Bistro Chairs are perfect if you need that extra bit of creativity and sophistication in your cafe. These are a great option if your cafe is very mobile as these chairs are durable and stackable.

Metal ChairsMost popular in CBD districts, Metal Chairs transforms your cafe into a high traffic environment. Often paired with wooden tables and wooden furniture, a metal chair transforms the atmosphere to an industrial and vintage feel. Some examples of striking metal chairs are our Orin Tub Chair and Lenny Chair. [caption id="attachment_1568" align="aligncenter" width="300"](image) Orin Tub Chair[/caption]
Cafe TablesIn order for your cafe to stand out, you need unique cafe tables that combine size, space and functionality. A strong, durable and high quality timber table will go a long way and can even double as a workstation for your customers. Other options such as our Slatted Table Tops and Compact Laminate Table Tops are also sophisticated options for outdoor use.

Table SizeChoosing the right size of the table is necessary because it directs your customers to the type of seating they are after. For example, our Hairpin Leg Dining Table is 80 cm, which is more suitable for people that are after a larger meal with entrees and drinks. On the other hand, if you are looking for something for people to place their coffees on, our 48 cm Aky Curve Coffee Table is an excellent choice.
Table SpaceIt is important to consider the size of your tables because you want your customers to be able to freely move around. We advise that you leave a space between 0.8m - 1m between each table to ensure that people can pull our their chairs and manoeuvre around without any problems.

You can combine a timber top with almost every any kind of cafe chairs from metal to timber to rattan. Solid timber table tops are extremely versatile which means you can buy the table base and top separately to mix and match to your liking. We recommended our Herringbone Solid Timber Table Tops, which are stylish, durable and entirely customisable with parquetry design options available.
