Creating A Traditional Pub Chill Out Area

February 15, 2019 / by

The British Pub has always been a hive of social activity within our communities, where you can go to relax after a long day or catch up with friends over your favourite bevvy. Pubs are where we escape from the cold winter nights and rainy British weather, as well as somewhere to cool down with an ice cold pint on a summer’s day.

If you’ve been tasked with designing a bar area for a party, wedding or corporate event, then you may well want to re-create the traditional British pub that we all know and love. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?

When it comes to bar hire, you’ve come to the right place because Furniture4Events are one of the largest suppliers of bars to hire in the South of the UK. Not only that, but we have the soft seating and bar furniture to boot!

This look will work well for a rustic/country charm, or those of you seeking a traditional feel at your event.

So what are the ‘ingredients’ of a traditional British pub set-up?

A pub should be a welcoming and familiar place, so you will find that most pubs have the same traditional furnishings in common. Usually, a pub conjures up images of chesterfield sofas next to an open fire, dark wooden furniture and low lighting.

With this in mind, we have some ideal bar and furniture options to create this look:

Traditional Pub Bar – when we think of a British country pub bar, we often think of dark mahogany wood which has a detailed top and frontage. Our bar gives the ‘old times’ feel and will make you feel like your heading to the local pub. To go alongside the bar is the traditional back bar which will complete the whole game.

Chesterfield Sofas – our oxblood, black or olive green sofas are the ideal colour choices to pair with the bar. Our Chesterfields have a distinctive deep buttoned design, with low back and rounded wooden feet. With these being real leather it will be easy for you to sit back and relax with your cold pint and packet of crisps.

To complete the look, then you may want to source some additional props to bring everything together. Maybe some wall panels, wooden barrels, chalkboard signs and even throw cushions. For this, you can simply Google the props you need and get creative with where you source them from. Ebay is always an option if you want to keep your props, but there are prop hire companies out there that will be able to help too.
