Hello, welcome.

Hello, welcome.

Come in, no need to take your shoes off. You can smoke in here too, and play loud music. Just watch the paintwork… some of it is still wet. We’ve only just finished the place you see. It’s brand new.

We hope you like it. There have been a few websites aimed at the bar trade over the years, and most of them have been pretty shoddy (I should know, I built one of them) but we think this is much more like it.

We’ve tried to keep things simple for now, and have avoided the temptation to have a million flashing lights and videos on every page, instead creating a site that should look pretty good whatever device you happen to be looking at it on.

But design is only half the battle of course, content is King as they say, and we really hope you will get involved and help us create a website (and e-newsletter – more to come on this) that will become invaluable to the trade. We will be writing more about ways to interact with BarLIfeUK, and through us the rest of the trade, but for now, please feel free to comment on this post or send us an email ateditorial@barlifeuk.com once you’ve had a look around.

Tell us what you think, and what you’d like to see as we develop the site. And if that involves a visit to your bar, and a couple of drinks, so much the better.
