A bar sign needs to be enticing and inviting. It also needs to give a good indication of what the bar is like. Is it high class? Does it offer live music? Is it high end or catering to the visitor on a budget? All this, and more, needs to be conveyed in one simple sign at the front entrance. The name of the bar also should be clear and readable, in a good font style, large enough to be read but not overbearing. It is usually placed above the bar itself.
