Multi-zone bar servicing for a boutique hotel
QT Perth is a boutique hotel in the heart of the CBD. As a well-known, fashion-forward hotel, QT would have been a little out of sorts without a top-tier bar and a draught beer system.
A quality bar for QT
This was a complex project – a brand new venue opening up in a major hub of the city that required both a café-style ground floor venue, a second-floor restaurant and a rooftop bar.
Facilitating the transfer of draught beer to each of these hotel zones required architectural design and input long before the build began – and it was not feasible for the client to implement keg cool rooms everywhere.
Once the design process was complete, QT contracted Barons for the installation of the beer system (this was part of a supply contract with Lion).
As industry leaders, Barons have set standards in Western Australia since branching out to installations in 2010 – although we are currently the fourth generation of the Baron family to work in draught beer!
The fact we provide a full operation manual, all training required to operate the system and maintenance line cleaning are just some of the reasons QT Perth chose to contract Barons.
A different feel on every floor
The client needed to provide their customers with a different offering in each area of the venue. In the ground floor café they wanted to achieve a casual feel, with three easy-drinking beers to cater to walk-ins coming in off the street.
Upstairs in the restaurant, the client needed two stations with a broader beverage offering in order to pair more beers with foods (as we so often do with wine).
Thirdly, the client needed the rooftop bar to be the biggest draw card in the venue – a stunning place to sit and watch the sunset over the Perth skyline. QT aimed to capture the entire Perth market, and they didn’t want to lose out on potential clients by offering a limited range.
