Your furniture has a tough task: it has to match the motif of the entire establishment. Your vibe must be accentuated by the furnishings, because while many people won’t notice an excellent match with your café tables and their surroundings, they will surely notice a sore mismatch.

At Café Club, we take pride in offering a huge variety of the crème de la crème of café tables. In a burgeoning hospitality market, something that is increasingly found throughout Australia’s urban landscapes, you need your furniture to stand out, in order to distinguish your café from the rest. Sub-par furnishings are almost immediately noticed, and will work against you.

Our varieties of wood tops on our café tables, from beech to acacia to oak, are complimented perfectly with our even larger variety of bases. We have a fixation on letting our clients find the most suitable table for their establishment.

We have square tops, rectangle tops, and circular tops. They are mounted on solid frames or foldable frames, made of wood, aluminium, or stainless steel. The list is a long one, but then, there are a lot of different cafes in Australia these days. When you’re ready to find the furniture that best suits yours, Café Club is ready for you.

 Being versatile is a key attribute to café and bar furniture. Maintaining the ability to move and adjust your setup, without being confined by furniture and chair combination incompatibility, can make it far easier to achieve a new look in any café, restaurant, or bar.

Dry bar tables fit this bill. Sitting at nearly the exact height of an actual bar, they are able to serve a twofold purpose. They can provide indoor or outdoor platforms for both standing areas, during crowded times, and seated areas, using the same bar stools you already have.

The perks continue with an easily washed surfacing and a light construction, able to withstand years of use, while portable enough to be easily shifted around the café. Convenient braces serve as footbars for your patrons, making them nearly as comfortable as your seated areas.

Available in two styled wood models and a rugged polished aluminium, our three dry bar tables (or high tables) are built to the industry standard and beyond. They are built for style, without sacrificing ease of cleaning and moving.

At Café Club, our dry bar tables match up with the legendary quality and workmanship exhibited by all of our café furniture. If you’re in need of a versatile and well-crafted addition to your furniture arsenal, give us a call!

There are unique demands on café furniture. The heavy usage of tables and chairs at busy cafes and service venues means that your investment must involve a durable finish, so as best to preserve the gloss of the outer paint job, and ensure that many years of service are the norm. This has to also balance the aesthetic preference of your venue.

Powder base coating has been around for a number of years now, and its ability to adhere itself to modern seating with tough efficiency has made it a favourite of seating providers Australia-wide, Café Club included. The notion of powder coating uses magnetically-charged pulverized paint flakes sprayed on to a grounded surface, which quickly adhere to it. The paint itself is then baked on to the surface in a large oven.

This method of painting has gained a great deal of accolades for a number of reasons. The dry flakes which miss the item of furniture are easily recovered, so there is little wastage. There are no aerosols in use, so less damage to the ecosystem, and because of this, the spraying of powder coating requires less containment infrastructure, and is more economical.

The resulting paint coating on the furniture is comparatively bulletproof. Its magnetic quality means it is resistant to scratching and chipping. It is versatile, and available in both high and low gloss finishes across a number of different colours and styles. As a hardwearing and well-presented finish, powder finishes are well worth consideration.

Somewhere in the recent past, Brisbane began to get really excited about its morning ritual.

Breakfast cafes in Queensland’s capital have exploded in recent years. If it can be reasonably eaten before ten in the morning, you can bet a venue nearby can do it. And having a climate amenable to outdoor seating year-round doesn’t hurt either.

This love of the day’s first meal has been compounded by a particular trend within Australia: a coffee hysteria. Our own particular take on the brew was influenced by Italian espresso makers back in the pre-war era, and we have never looked back. Nearly every venue in Brisbane has a skilled barista on permanent retainer, should anyone’s caffeine content sink below normal.

Brisbane’s pre-noon hospitality, then, is on the rise. And at Café Club, our café chairs have become the choice of these operators to provide proper seating for their sleepy-eyed patrons. If there ever was a meal in which proper seating is needed, it is at breakfast: who hasn’t felt a tinge delicate before work? Luckily, our lineup of café chairs fits the bill perfectly in Brisbane, appealing to both outdoor and indoor venues.

This two-way usage is what has set us apart. Brisbane weather is not easy on furniture. The blasting UV is countered by the driving rain of a sudden thunderstorm, and outdoor furniture can take a beating. Our range of café-oriented chairs and tables are built and treated to last in this rough environment, despite the best efforts of the elements.

As Brisbane’s favourite seating firm, we bid you good morning.

Café furniture speaks a good deal about your establishment. It is responsible for a considerably amount of the vibe and sensibility emanating from within, to say nothing of the enjoyment of your patrons which comes from sitting in a well-designed and properly-appointed setting.

Meanwhile, as a café owner, there are other considerations at work here. Your seating represents not only the face of your venue, but also a considerable investment. You want to be able to balance the stylistic and the durability attributes. Your seating arrangement, with all of its decisions with regards to style and form, also must factor in the longevity and value of commercial café furniture. They must be hard-wearing enough for repeated, long-term use, while maintaining their aesthetic quality throughout.

As a venue owner, then, there is much to consider. As Australia’s experts in commercial café furniture, we at Café Club have compiled a useful summation of the various pros and cons of the paints and finishes often found on café furniture.
