While two-dimensional CAD designs can be helpful for conceptualizing your bar, many of our customers like to visualize various layouts and configurations. For those looking to do some initial concepting, we suggest utilizing the BarFlex configurator from Krowne. Since its introduction in 2019, the software has allowed us to collaborate with numerous clients in designing multiple bars, resulting in stunning layouts that can be found in some of the most prestigious dining establishments across the nation. Below we break down the key features of one of our favorite tools.


Build Your Own Station


When you begin, you'll have the choice between two support systems for your equipment: the innovative modular bar die or traditional legs.

Modular Bar Die

  • Bar equipment ships pre-attached to steel bar structure in up to 7 ft. sections
  • Hides plumbing and drains
  • Replaces legs with a premium steel cantilever base
  • Seamless sealed-to-floor steel finish for improved aesthetics and cleanability
  • premium steel bar die structure includes cutouts for plumbing, electricity, soda & beer lines
  • Dramatically cuts down installation time
  • Perfect for new construction, total gut, or renovation projects

Traditional Legs

  • Perfect when ordering replacement bar equipment
  • Great to use if bar structure is already installed
  • Ideally for applications that require equipment to be moved seasonal
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Sturdy and durable
  • Available at an affordable price

Pick From Krowne Favorites


Begin your journey to the perfect bar setup with pre-configured workstations that have been carefully crafted. Once you select a station that resonates with your vision, you have the freedom to customize and tailor it to your exact preferences. Choose from the following:

  • The Taffer Command Station
  • Chain/Sports Bar
  • Craft Cocktail Bar
  • Hotel Bar
  • Wedding Venue Bar
  • Zero Step Design Bar

Try BarFlex Design Wizard


Feeling a bit lost on where to begin? Simply answer a few questions and let the BarFlex design wizard work its magic to create the perfect bar layout for you.

  • Do you intend to use fresh garnishes?
  • Do you intend to use glass elixir bottles?
  • How many elixir bottles per station?
  • Do you want a dump sink?
  • Would you like a faucet above the ice bin to help melt ice down quickly when needed?
  • Do you want a glass rinser or dipperwell station?
