Maximising floor space for a live music small bar
Lyric Lane is a bar, café and live music venue built and owned by the Mako Group. The exciting Maylands-based project required a draught beer solution that could work across a multi-level building from one central cool room in order to maximise floor space in the venue.
A brand new fit-out based on a good word
Being able to provide draught beer was particularly important to our client as their venue would be located next door to a microbrewery, and they wanted to be able to attract the same clientele. The project was a brand-new fit out, which meant Barons was involved in the early design phase.
Lyric Lane reached out to Barons in the early conception phase of the bar based on a multitude of recommendations from a hospitality industry social media group.
Long-term planning for the ultimate solution
One year before installing the new systems, Barons conducted a site visit to discuss the way they needed to run lines, how PVC ducting had to go in, how everything had to be laid before the
install could happen.
Once we understood everything the client needed, we began designing the solution ‘the way the brewer intended’ – which means the beer coming out of the tap tastes the same as the beer that
goes into the keg.
There are plenty of benefits to a beer pump system:
- Ability to push the beer further
- More elevation without increasing gas pressure
- Can reduce a gas bill by 80-90%
- No need to use mixed gas or introduce a foreign gas
- Clients can use C02 gas, a natural byproduct of brewing
- Beer can stay fresher and crisper for longer
- Reduced risk of over-carbonating (which leads to frothy pours)
