Why You Should Invest in a Luxury Bartender Apron

Here at S&R we sell high-end aprons of all kinds, including luxury bartender aprons. We often hear the question, “Why would I invest that much in an apron?” Plenty of bartenders don’t wear aprons at all, let alone handmade, high-end aprons. But we believe that a quality bartender apron is a tool that’s just as important as a corkscrew or a bottle opener. It’ll up your game as a bartender, and once you start wearing one, you’ll wonder why it took you so long.

In this article, we’re going to go over some of the reasons you should consider investing in not just any bartender apron, but a luxury bartender apron. Jump to the section you're interested in, or just read on!

First up is a big one: comfort. You’re on your feet behind the bar for hours at a time - comfort is a priority! The last thing you want is a strap rubbing annoyingly on your neck or a thin cloth apron that absorbed liquids that are now soaking into your shirt. A luxury bartender apron is going to sit comfortably on your body and be a seamless part of your outfit. The sturdy canvas, leather, or denim will keep liquids away from your clothes and skin, and lightweight cotton straps will be soft against your neck and waist.

For a real step up, opt for X-back cotton or leather straps. These offer even greater comfort, distributing the weight of the apron over your shoulders instead of your neck. This is where a high-end bartender apron can really set itself apart; it’s in these thoughtful details.

Lastly, standard aprons tend to be a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. That’s not the case with a luxury apron: we offer four different sizes based on how long you want your apron to be on your body. Use our fit chart to determine what’s right for you and get the most comfortable fit for your body. When you wear a high-end bartending apron, you’re going to forget you’re even wearing it - it’s that comfortable.

This one seems obvious - you’re paying for higher quality with a high-end apron - but it’s worth talking about. There’s two parts to quality: the materials and the work. With a luxury bartender apron, you’re in a whole different ball game from a mass-produced product.

The materials in a luxury apron have been specially selected by an apron expert to be ideal for the use of the apron. They’re not just canvas, denim, or leather - they’re premium materials that have been tested and refined over time. Here at S&R, we've been making aprons for over a decade, so we've had plenty of time to figure out the exact best fabrics for comfort and durability. All accessories on the apron have been carefully considered, too. The straps, hardware, and thread are all of the highest quality and built to last. 

Additionally, the design and craftsmanship are second to none, because a luxury apron is handmade. Real people used their hands to measure and cut the fabric, sew the seams, and put together a luxury item for you. This also means there are extra thoughtful details that increase the quality, such as reinforced rivets and an extra double-layer at the bottom of the apron to ensure it lays flat and lasts longer. This is the level of quality you should expect from a luxury apron!

The extremely high-quality materials and work result in incredible durability and longevity for an apron. In fact, it took over ten years for one of our original aprons to wear out. The craftsmanship of a luxury bartender apron means you won’t need to think about a new apron any time soon. Our customers don’t replace aprons, they just add to their collections.

We said above that we consider a luxury apron to be a tool in a bartender’s toolkit. This means it’s gotta be useful. A high-end apron has to keep everything you need at your fingertips at all times. For us, this means multi-use pockets and a well-placed towel loop.

Every bartender is different, so a luxury bartender apron needs to be flexible. In our aprons, we have a chest pocket with three separate compartments, and a larger front hip pocket with two compartments. You can configure your tools in your pockets in the way that is most convenient for you. The towel loop sits next to the front hip pocket so your towel is always right where you need it, instead of laying on the bar somewhere, out of sight. Of course, if you want a different configuration of loops and pockets, you can always go the custom route and get an apron that meets your exact specifications.

Also, surprise! There’s a hidden inside pocket for those cash tips, your phone, or anything else you want stashed away. We keep mentioning the thoughtful details of a luxury bartender apron, but this is really what sets one apart from a run-of-the-mill apron. The thoughtfulness makes the luxury.

What kind of bartender are you? How do you want others to perceive you at work? There’s a good chance you want to be seen as cool, professional, and creative. These are aspects of your personal brand, and a high-quality bartender apron can be a key part of that.

A luxury bartender apron can be your work uniform, giving you a sharp, consistent look every time you’re behind the bar. It takes your level of professionalism up a notch and shows customers that they’re getting a drink from someone who takes their job seriously and knows what they’re doing. It’ll make you stand out from the crowd and help to create a memorable experience for patrons. And when you do that, you’re building your bartender brand and overall career.

To really create a brand, you can add custom embroidery text or a logo to your luxury apron. This helps not only in a bar or restaurant, but also on social media, if you’re working on building an online following. It provides the opportunity to add a visual element that people will associate with you now and in the future. This is even more important if you own your own bartending business - putting your logo front and center on your apron is key to building your brand. You could also consider an entirely custom apron that incorporates your brand’s colours and/or patterns into the fabrics. The sky’s the limit with customization, and this means you can wear an apron that truly personifies your brand.

We know that bartenders are creative and like to stay on top of alcohol trends. It’s important to know how to make an espresso martini when suddenly they’re on every drink menu in the country. And just as with beverage trends, you should be a trendsetter with your bartending uniform. Stay ahead of the curve by getting your luxury bartending apron now and set the standard for those around you.

If you walk into most high-end bars or restaurants, you’ll see bartenders wearing good quality aprons. In these environments, folks know the impact of a sharp, professional uniform. Align yourself with the best of the best by upping your apron game.
