Fun Novelty Items for Bars and Restaurants

What makes a bar or restaurant fun and memorable are the party items they use or give out to guests at their bar. It’s also great when a bar or restaurant has a particular theme and sticks to that theme throughout the entire restaurant, from the decorations to the barware. Here are some great items that will spice up any bar or restaurant!

Light-Up Drinkware

Adding unique and fun light-up drinkware to your bar will make your bar or restaurant memorable and help it to stand out from the others. Bar or restaurant owners can designate one night a week to provide drink specials that come in festive LED drinkware. Depending on the type of bar or restaurant, they can be margaritas, or other types of fruity, frozen drinks, or they can be shots, or some type of exciting martini.

Bar or restaurant owners can also hand out these plastic light-up glasses at special events, such as New Year’s Eve! Have everyone share the midnight toast with light-up champagne flutes. And the best part about LED drinkware, is that it is plastic and nearly unbreakable.

Barware Accessories

If you own a beach themed bar, you will want some beachy bar accessories to go with the fruity drinks that you serve! Cocktail umbrellas are always a great accessory to a summery drink. You can also choose to make your drinks more unique by serving them with palm tree straws, or any other beach themed straw.

Security Wristbands

Wristbands are almost always necessary at bars, restaurants, or any type of event where alcoholic drinks will be served. The wristbands can let bartenders and waiters know who is underage and who isn’t. Wristbands are also great for keeping count of the number of people inside the bar, as well as for the bouncers to keep track of who already has entered the bar, especially if a fee is involved.

If you are having a special event at your bar, or are hosting a birthday party, balloons are an easy decoration to put up that will make the guest of honor feel special. Lumi-Loons, light up balloons, are great for events at bars and restaurants that have dimmed lighting inside.

Banners let customers, as well as people passing by, know that there is some type of event going on at your bar. You can pick out a certain look or theme for your banner, depending on the event you are hosting, and then add a custom message. Sports bars can hang football themed banners of the drink specials on game days!

Glow Items

Nightclubs or dance clubs sometimes hand out glow necklaces and other glow items to the people that attend their clubs. Giving out glow items or lumitons, light-up batons, will make for a memorable experience!
