Add long-lasting flair to your bar with a granite worktop. Here are several reasons why a granite worktop is perfect for your bar, pub or restaurant

granite worktops on Bars look amazing

Want your bar to have that element of class, then a granite countertop is the way. Granite worktops simply look amazing and can make the centre point of your bar stand out and become a highlight of your establishment​

The granite countertop for a bar appeals to customers 'James Bond' desires and always helps bars upsell their top shelf items. The moments a customers elbows and hands touch the hard, unique feel of the granite, it reminds them they are somewhere different and not to worry about the world outside. They feel they can try the cocktail, go for the fancier whiskey and enjoy themselves. The wooden bar top does not give this emotion.  

Granite Worktops for Bars are Long Lasting

A granite countertop for a bar is a must also because of its long-lasting nature. A granite countertop will last you a long time and will outlast other materials such as wood.

The granite worktop will not going to scratch, peel or chip like wood. It is a solid material that's going to last and not require much maintenance.

When you use other materials, they will probably need replacing at some point in time. Granite on the other hand, will not.

The granite countertop is a beautiful addition to any kitchen but for a bar it is a must and will not  cause you any problems in the future.

A Granite Worktop for a Bar Adds Resale Value

As a granite countertop doesn't fade or scratch is adds great value to your bar if you ever need to sell. The wooden bar will be seen as second hand and dated, but a granite worktop for a bar will be seen as a luxury addition helping in the sale.

Potential buyers will take note of the granite worktop as they rarely need replacing and don't date like other materials. In some of the oldest and most luxurious hotel bars in the world, granite bar countertops stand firm in their beauty for over 100 years in many.

Granite Countertops for Easy Cleaning

This is one of the best reasons for having a granite worktop for a bar - it is very easy to clean. With no little crevesses like with wood, even the most sticky of spills can be wiped clean from the solid surface.

If you spill certain liquids on wood for example, the wood can easily stain, warp, crack, or require repair because the liquid can get into the wood. With a granite worktop, it's very easy to clean and look after.

The Best Option for your bar, pub or hotel

Granite really is your best option when designing your bar. It will resist heat, be scratch resistant and become a highlight of the entire room.
Cracks and other problems are rare when you use granite so It just makes sense to use a granite worktop because of all the advantages it has over other materials.

You'll have a bar that looks great, is easy to maintain, is long-lasting, and one that is going to add value to your establishment over the long term.
