Bars can be a great investment. With a liquor license and location, you can open up a brew pub, wine bar, trendy lounge, or an old-fashioned dive bar. Because alcoholic beverages have a much higher profit margin than many other menu items, there is a high likelihood of success.Of course, you’ll need more than a license and a place to serve alcohol – you’ll also need things like a business plan and a marketing strategy. The first step for most bar owners is to pick a name. This name should be catchy, easy to remember, and relate in some way to your bar. Our list of more than 200 bar names can help get the creative juices flowing as you decide what to name your bar.

With a factory based in Michigan, Budget Branders works with food service businesses – including bars – across the United States. We specialize in working with independently owned companies that may believe that custom promotional products – like branded plastic cups – are out of reach for them. By selling all of our products in lower quantities and at fair prices, we make it possible for businesses of all sizes to purchase custom-branded disposables and take advantage of these incredible marketing advantages.

Choosing a Name for Your Bar

Let’s face it: picking a name for any business can be stressful. You want to make sure that it is right, not only because you’ll be investing a lot of money in signage and branding, but because a good name can have a real impact on the success of your business.

While the thought of committing to a name for your bar may be daunting, there are some steps that you can take to make it a bit easier. The end result should be readily recognizable and easy to remember. Bear in mind that your customers won’t necessarily come to your bar if they can’t think of the name.

There are many different ways to create a memorable bar name. You might want to name your bar after a family member, a favorite drink, or even a bit of pop culture that is important to you. Some bars have funny names, while others try to make a connection to something local. Any name that you choose should be distinct and easy to spell and remember so prospective patrons can find your business on Google.

So where should you get started? Try these steps:

  1. Refer back to your mission statement, which should be part of your business plan. This mission statement should include something about the bar’s core values and purpose. For example, if you have committed to only serving organic wines, that is part of your bar’s mission that could be included in your name. Make a list of things related to your mission statement, such as the type of drinks (and food) that you will be offering, the bar’s planned vibe, the city or neighborhood where it will be located, and any adjectives that you’d want people to use to describe your bar. You can also include any important names on this list, such as the name of the person who inspired you to open a bar.
  2. Use this list to brainstorm name ideas. With the organic wine bar example, you might write down names associated with organic (like green) and with wine (grape) to come up with a name like The Green Grape. Try to come up with as many names as possible so that you will be able to winnow down the list.
  3. If you’re stuck, you can use a bar name generator for ideas. You simply input a few keywords and it will spit out some options. You can also ask family, friends, and members of the community for ideas for a name. When people aren’t as close to the business, they can often come up with ideas that you may never have even considered! They will also be a good sounding board for you when you start narrowing down your list and want opinions on what works (and what doesn’t work!).
  4. Once you have a list, you should check to make sure that it is unique. You don’t want to create name confusion or trigger a copyright lawsuit. Use Google, the Yellow Pages, state corporate name searches, and even the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s search features. If there is a name on the list that is similar to – or identical to – a bar name that already exists, consider scrapping it. If you found a name that you love and no other bar has it – congratulations!

A bar name is important because it is how people remember your business. It is also key for marketing purposes. Your bar name won’t just be in front of your establishment – it will be on your social media, your website, and all of your marketing materials. You may even put it on merch to sell at the bar. That is why picking a great name is so important – and something you should take seriously!
