Every bar needs a workstation that’s designed specifically for them. And there is no perfect workstation.
But often, to increase storage capacity and improve bartender efficiency, you have to get a little bit creative with your design. That’s where Barflex 3D comes in.
We first came up with the concept of BarFlex about four years ago. We were having issues with customers trying to configure their bar setups. As soon as it got to the configuration step and you started adding options, difficulties we’re popping up.
So we went on a journey to build the perfect workstation builder.
Specialty items like speed rinsers and built-in CO2 glass frosters are becoming staples in many new bars. This rapid expansion of equipment options has created a demand for something more intuitive and visual than traditional 2D CAD.
Barflex 3D is a design software web app that allows you to fully configure your workstation in 3D. It features over 2,000 unique configurations to choose from and allows you to create the perfect workstation for your exact application.
It’s really crucial for restaurateurs and bartenders to have a clear understanding of their bar layout before proceeding to the production stage. With two dimensional CAD (computer aided drafting), designs can be difficult for end users to comprehend layout and configuration prior to signing off on drawings.

Tips to Design Your Perfect Bar Using Barflex
Begin with some key questions. As you complete these, the Barflex Wizard will guide you through the customization process.
- How much space do you have?
- How much ice storage do you need?
- How many liquor bottles do you need to store?
- Choose either Modular Bar Die* or traditional legs:
*Note: If it’s new construction or total gut renovation, we suggest Modular Bar Die. If you’re only ordering parts or replacing one item, we suggest traditional legs.
Build your workstation from the bartender perspective going left to right.
Once you complete the design, your design is submitted to our quoting department and they’ll send you a quote on what you made. It’s just that easy!
How to Build Your Perfect Custom Bar
You can build your own workstation, configure it from scratch, pick all of your options, order your equipment, and rearrange your equipment.
You can also pick from our pre-made favorites. This is a great feature because many people are not sure how to best build their bar. These options are some of what we consider to be the most efficient workstations you can possibly create.
From there you can confirm that the size will work for you, and you can order right away.
Example of Using Barflex
So say you want to start with a 30” ice bin. You can click it and your options populate on the right hand side. From there, say you want to do a garnish station, you’ll notice as soon as you click an option, incompatible choices will gray out. This system is tailored to our equipment, so it will let you know exactly how you can configure your workstation.
You can rotate, tilt, and zoom in and out.
The Bottom Line
It can be very hard to understand 2D CAD drawings. You might look at a traditional drawing and wonder, what exactly am I looking at here?
This tool allows you to get the perfect configuration that you’re looking for with your bar… without the custom price tag.
So what are you waiting for? Now you can build your dream bar from start to finish.
