Looking for shade and shelter for your new outdoor dining zone?

Reconnecting with our local communities provides exciting opportunities for local hospitality businesses. Bringing to life your current or new outdoor dining space involves planning how to best use the area you have. In addition to outdoor seating, many hospitality operators will be wanting to ensure the space can be well used day and night, sun and drizzle.

Including a shade and shelter solution allows so much more than keeping people protected from the sun. The impact of a stunning looking canopy can bring attention to your location. The seated area can take on a resort like feel, ensuring your customers feel relaxed and keen to stay on for another round.

If you decide to invest in a shade and shelter solution, take the time to ensure you are getting a product that not only does the job required now, but will last, look good and allow flexibility to make changes in the future.

Commercial grade umbrellas are designed for use in hospitality with a combination of quality, strength and unique features, that takes them beyond the specifications of a domestic model.

Tips to creating distinctive outdoor dining spaces

Changes to the planning rules enable pubs and small bars across NSW to implement outdoor dining.

This is great news for hospitality businesses. The question becomes how can you create an atmosphere that customers feel is a destination rather than a footpath?

When you are getting started on developing your alfresco dining space one of the first decisions needs to be creating an all-weather solution, providing shade and shelter to your guests.

With a fabulous long lasting and portable commercial umbrella, you’re able to create an outdoor dining area that clients love.

Consider whether the umbrella is placed within a tabletop or is supported by a freestanding portable base. How does that effect your table configuration options?

Choose colours that create a soft and inviting light for guests to relax under, as well as helping your business stand out in the street.

Ensure the umbrella you choose is suitable for the wind zone that you are located in. No-one needs the stress of having to take umbrellas down mid service.
