Bar Setup & Breakdown Checklist (Free Download)

We have developed a great tool that helps you put procedures in place and restore some order to the business. The Bar Setup & Breakdown Checklist is to be used every day and every week. It has day to day jobs as well as cleaning tasks.

This Bar Setup & Breakdown Checklist doesn’t take much explaining. It is pretty much plug and play and change things where you see fit. I will put up screenshots for the Monday.

Let’s take a look.

Here we have the template for the Monday Opening Procedure

I will only show Monday on here but template does obviously have setups, breakdowns and cleaning lists for every day of the week.

You can quite easily chop and change all the jobs around as well as delete and add your own as we understand that every bar is different.

Let’s take a look at Mondays Cleaning lists


Cleaning List


And finally the bar breakdown part, or ‘End of Night Clean down’ as it is sometimes referred to.

As we said at the start, it is all pretty much self-explanatory but if you do have issues then let us know below and we will get right onto them.

    I certainly agree with you about it revolves around team work. Please in your next update the bar backs job as well since their ultimate desire is to become a bartender. Good job otherwise
