Name a Bar and Grill

How to Name a Bar and Grill. Once you have realized your dream of opening a bar and grill, you must name it. There are many thoughts on the process of finding a name, but your bar and grill is like your child. It is a dream that you have made a reality, and you should put as much time and energy into the process as you if you were naming your child.

Step 1

Go with your name. There are many people who name their offspring with this idea in mind. Instead of naming your establishment James Junior, go with the norm and name it James' Bar and Grill.

Step 2

Get a thesaurus and a dictionary to help you. When trying to name a non-living entity, you should use the widest vocabulary possible.

Step 3

Choose a name for your bar and grill by how you want it to feel. Find a family name, or a name that speaks to family values that you hold dear, if you envision a family style place. If you are marketing to the sports crowd, keep that in mind when naming your bar and grill.

Step 4

Make a list of the ambiance and customers you picture in your bar. List all of the characteristics of the style and look of your key customer demographic. Keep all of these words in mind when you name your bar and grill.

Step 5

Translate some of your favorites. If you want to get an ethnic feel, or just want a different name for your bar and grill, find your adjectives and feeling words on your list in different languages. These could become invaluable when picking a name.

Step 6

Pick a name that is close to your heart. Like naming a boat, some men lean toward the name of their true love. You can go this route, or you can pick the name of your closest canine friend.

Step 7

Use your gut. When a word or phrase jumps out at you, or grabs you in that special way, go for it. If it grabs you, then it may grab your customers, as well.
