The lighting will be essential in making the place more attractive and reflecting the beautiful beverage colours.  The level I will choose for the bar is the customer engagement with all the buying transactions being done within the bar. Self-service is the form of service the bar will engage in which entail ordering from the bar with all payments and drinking happening within. The employees will wear scientist uniforms and the safety glasses which are in line with the laboratory setting (Susanto, 2018). The bar will also offer small dishes of food and snacks which are essential in the slowing the alcohol absorption in the bloodstream. Some of the key drinks the bar will offer include wines, beers, and spirits, cocktail and even soft drinks with all of them set to align with the theme of the bar.

The key inspiration in this bar is the scientific laboratory with everything aligned to the same.  Despite drinks being the main business, the bar will also offer snacks and small plates meals which have health benefsl. From research it is evident that costing calculation is essential in every business as the differentiator between success and failure, hence, a key element in this industry. The costing calculation will be helpful in the tracking the performance which will be done efficiently (Ismail, Azlan, & Mustapha, 2018).  


Name and style

OH mixology laboratory is the name I will choose for the bar. It is a type of bar which is focused on creating new tasty drinks with the use of quality ingredients (Jayne, & Valentine, 2016).

The theme of the bar is a colorful laboratory full of light. Lighting is very important in changing the perception of flavors. For example, some drinks are able to shine the full light to attractive reflections (Kseniya, 2018).

The focus of this level of service is to build loyalty and relationship such that when the consumer chooses to buy will definitely choose the bar. This level entails how people interact with the customers when the things are going well and their ability to handle situations which are difficult. The employers must be able to interact with the clients such that they will be coming back to the bar since they feel appreciated and at home (García, 2016). To achieve this level of service, the employees must be able so resolve conflict efficiently, pay attention to the needs of the customers and learn the preference of the frequent clients to compose of their favorite drinks and sitting position (Kseniya, 2018).

Self-service is the form of service I choose for the bar.

One of the key reasons for the use of the uniforms is the brand identity.  The brand of this bar is the mixologist laboratory which is a best method for the advertisement.  The element of trust is usually amplified through the recognition of the brand which is brought about by the effective bar wear.

Costing calculation and recipe card

Ability to manage profitability is the key differentiator between succeeding in the business and business failure (Chinchanachokchai, & Jamelske, 2015).

I will choose this as my calculation formulae to get the cost of goods;

COGS: OI+P-EI/S. With;

OI-opening inventory; the liquor one had on the shelf at the start of the week

P-purchases; the products one had bought during the week

EI-Ending Inventory; what one has at the end of the week

S-sales; what was sold during the week

After one knows the cost of goods in the week, they can understand their profitability which guide them to checking their performance which is helpful in choosing the best practices in managing their costs.

With costing 330046ccounting, one is able to manage the liquor items in place ensuring they do not inquire losses which ensures profitability. The costing accounting is a key method which is used for the proper purchasing strategy and preventing the behind the bar theft (Sofhian, 2015).

To ensure that there is proper cost accounting while still preventing the behind the bar theft, there are three key practices the bar will adopt;

Consistency in counting is the first practice which entails people counting the liquor which is essential in spotting any abnormalities in the business. Secondly, the business will adopt the weekly bar inventory which is essential in tracking any variances and in relating the sale revenues with the purchasing dollar over time (Cepoi et al…, 2017). Thirdly, the bar will also adopt the repair and maintainace issues practice which enable one to identify the preventive maintainace concerns and the surrounding facilities which may affect the profitability leading to the management of the same. Finally, the bar will also adopt the breakage book and the comp tabs which will enable us control the spill or waste due to the ability to check the usage against the sale. The comp tabs is beneficial in maintaining the control on the product usage or sold and promoted.

The cost accounting will be helpful in the choice of the proper purchasing strategy. By tracking the weekly spending, one is in a position of making spending cuts in respect with the same. The stock value will be accurate in line with the week’s purchase (Fumero, De & García-Rodríguez, 2015).
