Bar Equipment: Going Beyond Blenders with Electronics and Disruptive Tech

Simple syrups made with locally sourced spices and herbs as well as mashups, fermented and smoky drinks are all expected to grab bar patrons’ attention in the months ahead. Restaurant Hospitalitymagazine’s experts are also banking on low-alcoholic numbers, coffee flavors and more to make a splash too. So muddlers and blenders may prove to be the least of items on entrepreneurs’ bar equipment lists.

Bar equipment auctions are going on now and throughout the New Year. They’re expected to include more than just bar backs and mixologists’ standard fare. New and used electronics will make appearance as well. In Fort Lauderdale, we’re already seeing audio-visual materials come up for auction from an astonishing number of well and lesser known brands. Among the treasure trove of bar equipment brands making their way through our Fort Lauderdale location are the following:

  • Blonder Tongue
  • Audio-Technica
  • Asus
  • Blitzz Technology
  • Atlas Sound
  • Casio
  • Bose
  • Channel Plus
  • Creston
  • Denon

Because there are so many brands, nightclub owners and entertainment professionals are likely to find everything from amplifiers and cables to stereo line mixers and electronic drum pads. And some of the bar equipment of note were manufactured in 2015. So they’re still relevant, which makes it simpler and more cost-effective to upgrade in-house sound systems. Upgrading will certainly be needed if bars tend to jump on the disruptive technology craze.

When purchased at Fort Lauderdale based auctions, disruptive tech tends to garner bidders great savings. Bar items that fall in line with the disruptive trends as Wi-Fi wiring, touch screens, live stream AV systems and interactive, video gaming. Some industry pundits may also toss animatronics or robotics into the mix too. To find out which 2016 bar tech essentials are available now, please contact us.
