If you want your tills to be ringing like Santa’s sleigh bells, you need to start preparing for Christmas now. The shops have already started selling Christmas presents and decorations, and most people are looking forward to celebrating Christmas during the whole of December, not just the 25th.
Here are some tips to help you make the most the festive period:
Consider your layout
Whether you run a pub or a club, take stock and analyse the way you are using your space. Are there too many tables, are there not enough? When it turns colder, how are you going to utilise your beer garden? If you install some attractive heaters outside, you could open up the space and increase your capacity.
What is your food offering like?
Has your chef got any ideas about expanding your menu to make it more Christmassy? Even your bar snacks could get a makeover. Punters will love the option of having a bowl full of pigs in blankets to munch on. Warm mince pies will go down a treat too.
If you don’t currently offer a set menu, why not consider having one? This could be ideal for families or work party bookings.
How about special deals?
If you’re usually quiet during the day, think of ways you can pull people in. Could you have a Christmas craft morning with lunch? Or perhaps lunch with Santa and advertise it to Tots groups in your area?
Music matters, especially over Christmas. A digital jukebox would allow your punters to choose what music they want to listen to, whether it’s a Christmas track, an old classic or the current number 1.
An evening of carols by the fireside might go down well in a traditional pub and you could have a festive pool competition (Team Elves vs Reindeers) etc. Pool tables can be a huge attraction and make your venue stand out from the competition.
