Christmas Displays for Bar or Restaurant

Christmas Displays For Your Bar or Restaurant

It is never too early to start thinking about your Christmas display ideas. Making sure you have all of the appropriate display materials early is essential in ensuring a smooth display change transition. As time passes and we move closer to December we can pretty much guarantee that you will start to take more bookings for most evenings and weekends until the new year. Many people talk about being in retail during the festive period but it is an insanely busy time for bars and restaurants too. This is probably the time of the year that you will make the biggest profit so it is important to put all you can into this month. 

Not many bars and restaurants think about POS displays or displays in general, but they can be incredibly handy, especially at this time of year. Showing off to your customers the amazing things you can offer them in cleaver subtle ways works in all industries. For any bar or restaurant that is looking for some inspiration regarding displays this Christmas, VKF Renzel has put together a list of displays that will work for everyone and help to boost your sales. 

Window displays 

As always, this is one of the most important displays during the festive period. Your window display should catch the eye of everyone walking past and entice customers to come in for some food or a drink. 

Think about the different ways you can be unique with your display. If there is something that your bar or restaurant is specifically known for then still highlight this in your window, just add a festive twist. Our top tip would be to think about lighting, the festive season is known for light-up decorations, so ensure you add some for depth to your window display with light. 

Festive menus

The majority of bars and restaurants will have specific festive menus for this time of year. Whether it is a set food menu or different Christmas cocktails, unless you tell your customers about this they will be none the wiser. 

Make yourselves stand out from other competitors that use standard paper menus and try using table menu holders. Whether you opt for standard plastic menu holders or mix things up slightly with 3D stands you can guarantee they will look more professional. Using a stand is a good way to ensure that every table always has a menu helping to keep your menus in good condition as well as creating more space on your table for customers.

Festive Table Top Menu Holders


Lots of restaurants and bars will use pavement signs outside their establishments. They can advertise things like your specials or your opening house. Whatever you decide to put on them you can guarantee passersby will see it. 

At this time of year, you can have a bit of fun with your standard a-boards. Don’t forget about them when you are decorating the outside of your restaurant or bar and make sure that they don’t get lost amongst everything else you have going on. Use a variety of coloured chalks to create a more eye-catching display to passersby. Why not fill them with Christmas quotes or song lyrics and encourage your customers to share pictures of them on social media for some extra free advertising? 

Drink offers 

There is no denying that over the holiday season most of your money will be made on drinks. Even if you’re predominantly a restaurant you can guarantee that people's bills will be made up of a huge quantity of alcohol. 

Of course, you will have a selection of different drink offers ongoing throughout December but you need to make sure that everyone knows about them. Try getting some stand-alone chalkboards or even wall mounted chalkboards that you can put near your till area to catch customers attention. Make sure they are advertising your best offers that people can’t resist and be sure to add a Christmas twist to the names of drinks or the decoration of the boards.
