When refurbishing and renovating a bar or restaurant, the bar area is likely to be one of the first areas to get a facelift. The bar top itself is an especially high traffic area that every customer who visits will be in contact with.
A beautifully installed and fabulous bar top will really make an impact with customers and leave a lasting impression. A high quality bar top that looks fantastic is an essential addition to any new bar.
Versital manufactures high quality stone resin bar tops in a huge range of finishes. Finishes include true to life faux marbles, granites as well as the striking high gloss sparkle ‘Reflect’ range of colours.
Manufactured to Spec
Bar tops are manufactured to spec from diagrams or measurements supplied. In the case of curved bars and more complicated shapes a template may be required to ensure a perfect fit.
Amoro Restaurant in Blackpool has recently opened its’ doors with great success. We were delighted to work alongside and have our bar tops specified by Joseph Boniface Architects on this exciting new independent restaurant.
Joseph Boniface Architects
Versital worked alongside architects Joseph Boniface in Blackpool who designed and specified the full project with a sleek modern sleek design. As an experienced architect in commercial projects they opted for materials that look fantastic, but that were also easy to keep and would last long after the opening.
The client wanted a marble look for his Italian restaurant as a nod to tradition, but both he and the architect Joseph were concerned about using natural marble due to the problems the material inherently brings. Being naturally porous marble has a tendency to stain and is not waterproof, which is not ideal in a bar or restaurant situation.
100% Waterproof Marble Look Bar Tops
Versital faux marble is the ideal substitute for real marble where a real world practical solution is needed, as well as looking the part. Versital bar tops have all the look of a natural marble being hand made, but are 100% waterproof and stain resistance – perfect for a busy restaurant and bar area.
Versital finish ‘Arabesque’ was chosen here as a great alternative to Carrara marble. The white background and black vein have a beautiful depth of colour. Being a hand made and veined product, it is the nearest match to natural marble on the market using a synthetic stone resin.
All Versital bar tops are manufactured to order to design specifications and sizes from either the client direct or the interior designer and architect. Bar tops can be made from plan where needed, or template if that suits a customer best.
In this project for Amoro Restaurant, the client required a template taking by a fitter we were able to recommend and the bar top was manufactured to that precisely.
Well renowned and highly rated restaurant Cannonball House recently underwent a refurb on the bar and restaurant area. The facelift designed by Ambience Designs Edinburgh and installed by ECG Joinery included a new restaurant layout, bar area and decor.
Rated 5 star on the independent review site trip advisor, Cannonball House has an excellent reputation for food, service and decor.
“We were delighted that Cannonball House decided to use Versital for their new bar tops and table tops. As a highly regarded and successful restaurant we understand how important quality is to them.
They chose the classic white marble finish ‘Arabesque’ for a look to emulate Carrara marble. They wanted the marble look, but in a waterproof and easy to care for material that would last. Versital’s custom bar tops and table tops were ideal for their needs and could be made to their exact design specifications.
Their fitters ECG joinery could install the product themselves without the need for a specialist masonry team or equipment.”
Versital bar tops are manufactured from stone resin to the specification of designers, architects or client ready for installation. There are over 90 colour options to choose from in marble, granite and sparkle finish options.
Unlike natural marble, Versital cultured marble is 100% waterproof and stain resistant making it a more practical option for high traffic areas such as bar tops and table tops. Versital offers the look of beautiful marble surfaces, but none of the problems they bring.
