The bar business
What is it about your favorite bar that keeps you coming back? Is it the friendly service, the clientele, the drink specials? Or, is it the look and feel of the physical bar itself? More bars and restaurants are installing glass bar tops and accents to set their design apart from the competition, and here at Glass Magazine, we want to see them. Backlit, laminated, kiln-cast, large and small, tell us about the coolest glass bars you’ve worked on recently. Fabricators, retailers, installers, we’d like to hear from all of you. So, please email high resolution photos and descriptions to email@example.com and tell us why your bar project belongs in Glass Magazine’s upcoming “Best Glass Bar” feature.
For the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, D.C., UltraGlas created this all-glass, illuminated bar of ¾-inch-thick low-iron glass with a translucent frit-based coloration and UltraGlas “Linen” kiln-formed texture. The glass frit-based, fired-on colors were heat processed to fuse to the No. 2 surface of a lite of low-iron Diamant glass by Saint Gobain.
