Course information

You can only achieve an efficient workflow when your work area is clean and well-organised. This is true also for bars and restaurants where time, money and guest satisfaction are all measures of how well they're set up. A food and beverage team will likely follow standard operating procedures in the form of opening and closing checklists, to ensure the venue is set up and closed correctly each day.

This course, How to Set Up a Bar Station, will prepare you to open, set up, and close down a bar, dining room, bathroom and guest entrance. This course covers:

  • A sample opening checklist with instructions for each of the 11 essential opening stages
  • A sample closing checklist with instructions for each of the seven closing stages
  • A maintenance checklist for keeping a venue's entrance, dining room, bar and guest facilities in a tidy and clean condition
  • A quiz to test your knowledge of opening and closing procedures.
  • Let's begin learning the standard operating procedures for opening and closing a bar.
