You’ve planned the rota, you’ve pencilled in the match times, but have you prepared your beer garden yet? With the World Cup just around the corner, there’s bound to be larger than usual footfall to all establishments with televisions! You’re going to need to make the most of every inch of space. Take a look at how you can spruce up your very own “Fan Zone” with beer garden parasols.

One step ahead

Sure, people can watch the football at home, but we all know it’s so much better on the big screen with a drink in hand. With games running through pretty much all of British daylight hours, you’ll be wanting to prepare for anything and everything. Sun-wise. Rain-wise. Empty-keg-wise. We can help you with two of those.

Garden parasols give control to your customers. If they want to hide the sun’s glare, they can put it up. If they’d rather sit in the sun, they can do just that. If it starts to drizzle, they can take cover underneath until it passes. Each table or group of people can use the parasols to whatever extent they like, meaning that they can decide amongst themselves what they prefer. Happy customers all round – although unfortunately, the football scores are out of our hands.

Extra viewing space

With additional customers old and new visiting over the World Cup month, spaces may be a bit ‘cosier’ than usual. There’s certainly one way you can enable more customers to see the football without flying them to Russia. How about positioning a TV or projector screen so it faces the beer garden? Instantly, you have yourself another viewing area.

Furnished with benches, tables and garden parasols to add to the look, you can bring the inside outside. There’s no need to worry about your guests getting cold during the later games either. You can specify garden parasols with integrated heating and lighting systems.

Bring people together

With the back-catalogue of football songs likely to be sung beautifully in bars and pubs across the nation– need I remind you of “Vindaloo”? – new friendships may be formed.  You may meet your newest regulars. Make your venue the best it can be, as first impressions count!  If you do it right, you’ll have customers staying long after the football ends, making the most of your beer garden, parasols, benches, and most importantly, the bar! We’ve been proven to increase turnover by 300%. Get in touch to find out more.
