The most recommended benefit of the bar is to let the customers to wait there so that they can comfortably and happily feel waiting for the dinner. The bar does not have the luxury of waiting area. The bar should be big enough to accommodate all the customers in waiting. Here the toughest question is to define the ‘big enough’. The optimal size of the bar can be analyzed with help of data gathering over the horizon of the time.
The bar capacity can be modified according to the need in the following two ways as given below to better accommodate the customers and the process at the hotel.

• Do you believe having the bar area is a good idea? Why?
Yes, having the bar area is a good idea in the hotel. The bar in the hotel is used for dual purpose as:
– The bar area in the restaurant keeps getting the customers engaged, that means the customers does not mind to keep waiting in the area.
– The bar area also creates another source of revenue. The revenue is generated in the bar area by serving the drinks to customers. This leads in increasing the overall spending of the customer.
Therefore, I believe that having the bar area in the restaurant is a good idea as it does not only let the customer engaged but also helps in generating more revenue.
