Develop a strong concept for your bar and grill with built-in efficiency and innovation as well as the function and beauty customers—and staff—expect. Rapids Contract and Design has been helping bar owners create welcoming pubs for more than 80 years. As the inventor of the first direct-draw beer dispenser for commercial bars in 1936, we have improved bar and grill operations along the way, creating and implementing award-winning designs. 

 The bar and grill has come a long way in recent years, with the addition of numerous beer options in even the smallest bars. Rapids Contract’s beer service consultants have grown and evolved along with the industry. Our team continues to lead the way in brewpub, bar, taproom, and beer system design and project management.

Interior Design for Bars, Breweries, Taprooms, and Brewpubs

From concept to completion, Rapids has the experience in evaluating a bar space and providing efficient layouts that minimize effort for bartending and service staff. Take advantage of the latest in energy-efficient lighting and equipment, including draft beer systems—our specialty. Ensure strong branding throughout your bar with designs that include graphics, logos, and colors to further distinguish your bar from the pack. 

Following a consultation, we will deliver CADD and schematic designs representing a 3D walk-through of your bar design. In addition to providing an in-depth preview of your space, we also ensure contractors and officials receive the drawings, specifications, and documentation they need to approve your bar construction project. Rapids leads the process for you.

Draft Beer Systems and Bar Equipment

Based on your service concept, Rapids has the resources to source, implement, and install all the equipment you need to store and serve the food and drinks your customers want to order. Get the refrigeration equipment, coolers, and other tools you need to keep food and beer fresh and cold. Plus, choose cooking equipment suited to your menu and staff.  

For draft beer, our engineers develop optimal beer delivery systems for bars and taprooms alike. Decades of experience allows our team the ability to create a custom draft system that is right for you. That could be a long-draw system pulling from a distant keg cooler, or a direct-draw draft beer system. Make your beer dispensing system work in your favor by increasing efficiency and minimizing labor.

Bar and Grill Project Management

Rapids Contract and Design provides much more than bar design services. We assign a team leader to coordinate and oversee your entire consulting and design process. We manage every step of your project. That includes communicating with vendors, construction contractors, and permitting officials to ensure that your bar is built and designed to comply with building and health codes. 

From your initial bar concept to the completion of beer delivery systems and construction, Rapids will be by your side. Contact us to learn more about bar and grill design or to optimize a brewery taproom.
