One of the things I love most about Boston is the eclectic choices of bars around the city. Some bars specialize on craft beers (my personal favorite kind of brews!) while others shift their focus towards a product strategy. Either way, there’s always some random spot I haven’t drank at that I have to check out.
With so many choices to choose from, the intriguing part is discovering what makes them tick. Just a few nights ago I went into this awesome place called Four Winds Bar & Grill that had that neighborhood feel where the people would remember you. Not only was the food amazing, but the bartenders were so friendly that I stayed a few more minutes after finishing my meal! On a random note, I’ll post up a list of neighborhood bars around Boston if I find more.
Back to my point, cities like Boston or Salem have those unique restaurant or bars that customers remember. Whether it is simply rotating drinks or having live music, there’s always some unique selling point that will keep your customers staying longer. Audiences stay longer when there is an interesting theme within the bar. Boston sure has some vivid bar themes, but a Portland, Oregon has a bar with a DIY theme.
Nestled on 3522 North Vancouver Avenue is DIY Bar, a joint specializing in beers and craft projects. DIY Bar opened in Spring 2017, a place where customers can choose from a variety of craft projects to work on while sipping on their favorite wine, cider, or beer. Projects range from easy to hard and take about 1-3 hours to complete. It’s the perfect joint to get your craft on while sipping on your favorite brew!
DIY Bar definitely has a great unique selling point here! The USP of providing fun crafts to do will pull audiences into the establishment, having them stay longer and drink more. Other than the drinks, it’s a great craft place to socialize with other patrons about their work as well. While the price may be high ($39 for each project!), it would definitely be worth checking out.
We need more places like DIY Bar around this country. What makes it so special is the USP of doing craft projects while drinking with your friends. This is definitely a place I could see myself going with my friends in the future.
This sounds like an awesome place! I’ve been to bars that had arcade games (BitBar Salem and A4cade in Cambridge!), but this idea sounds really captivating. Not sure if something like this is around Boston, but this would definitely fit well with the city. As a matter of fact, Boston should think about establishing a bar with a writing theme to it (lots of famous writers started in Boston, FYI!).
There’s always some grand idea that’s part of the USP for a bar. Sometimes you have to think outside the box to pinpoint your main theme for your audiences. A bar or restaurant isn’t nothing without some USP that would distinguish itself from the competition (otherwise it’ll become another monotonous chain restaurant!).
With that, I’m so grateful to stumble upon this awesome gold I dug up in the internet. DIY Bar is definitely something to check out if you enjoy completing DIY craft projects.
