Sample Bar Pro Trends

Each Bar PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online bar articles, videos and images. Examples:

Sophisticated Routine Consumers are seduced by the sophistication of routine memberships Implications - Membership-based services, such as communal workspaces or fitness centers, are glamorizing participation by adopting sophisticated aesthetics. By elevating their interiors, these services transform often unpleasant tasks, like working late or exercising, from mundane to enjoyable. Improving the design of the physical spaces also increases the perceived prestige and exclusivity of activities that would otherwise be considered routine, ultimately motivating consumers to keep returning.

Collaborative Membership Shared workspaces entice members with social benefits Implications - Rather than prioritizing individual ownership, the share economy promotes the collaborative consumption of goods and services, including shared work spaces. Beyond the sharing of physical space, these memberships entice consumers with the promise of fostering a sense of community and collaboration, suggesting that shared creation is just as important as shared consumption in this socio-economic model.

Confectionery Collaboration Chocolate and candy brands collaborate to create hybrid sweets Implications - Choosing to embrace fellow competitors, brands, like those in the confectionery industry, are choosing to collaborate with others on new flavors and formats. Seeking to capitalize on the popular fan followings of certain brands, confectionery companies are seeking to not only expand awareness to new markets, but also redefine how typically traditional products are perceived.

Experiential Nightlife Consumers search for nightlife experiences that grant bragging rights Implications - The "hipster" subculture is one that demands experiences that deviate from the mainstream. As such, consumers who fall into this category are turning to one-of-a-kind, experiential bars, nightclubs and events. Living in a culture in which people are constantly afraid of missing out, unique experiences hold more than just novelty and intrigue; they also communicate a sense of prestige.

Intimate Partying Bars and nightclubs get smaller and cozier to offer a more personal experience Implications - Many nightlife venues are downsizing and simplifying in an effort to offer guests a more intimate experience. Looking to nightlife as a form of escape, consumers appreciate the crowd control and opportunity for connection. Smaller venues also lend themselves to offer more personal performances by musicians and DJs.

Minimalist Barchitecture Cocktail and bar lounges opt for subdued, understated layouts Implications - Bar and lounge owners are adopting a minimalist approach to architecture. This gets around the need for space in cramped city cores, and provides patrons with a sense of visual serenity. Moreover, this approach to bar design allows for bars to exist on a smaller scale without compromising on consumer comfort.

Detoxifying Refreshment Health conscious individuals seek out earthy ingredients in raw juices Implications - In a time when consumers increasingly choose organic foods and beverages, juice brands are experimenting with hearty root vegetables as a source of flavor, detoxification and nourishment. This shift is representative of a progression in the desires of consumers to incorporate energizing and beneficial sources of refreshment free of processed sugars.
