While creating the BarDojo WordPress theme, we’ve put ourselves into the place of a bar / restaurant owner who wants a simple one page website (or multipage) that would look good, required no maintenance (or easy to maintain via WordPress), would be very informative and would make the visitor get in touch for a reservation.
Theme Anatomy and Overview
So we have the first screen dedicated to a slider with some nice impressive images and awesomely designed typographic titles. After that – there’s the menu. 3 dedicated columns for some highlights and then a button which you can link to your whole menu in a .pdf format for example. All these combined with some of the Chef’s recommendations.
And them the About us section comes – with a block dedicated to who we are, chefs, history, the idea and the concept slider.
Events – earliest event comes first and it’s expanded. It has the image with the same ratio as a Facebook event cover. It has a countdown, title, start date and time, short description and a link to the facebook event page. Plus the entrance price and a call to action button. Enough to keep your audience informed and get them engaged.
A filterable photo gallery where you can mix photos from your events, food, your place’s interior, etc.
In the Reservations section we haven’t forgot about the good old phone contact method, plus a reservation form. Below that we have the Working Hours, current time and your bar’s status – is it closed for a private party?
And then the contact info with some social links, address, phone and a map.
