This is Square for Restaurants. Bars love it, too.

Square for Restaurants

Run your bar how you’ve always wanted. (Faster.)

Our built-from-scratch platform of software, hardware, and payments streamlines your whole operation. It’s built for your bar and your back office. And it’s built for speed.

Simplify complicated drink orders. Order up custom ones.

Whether it’s shaken, stirred, dirty, or dry—group modifiers with items and have them automatically appear so you can pour fast and accurately.

Menus for happy hour (and any hour).

Create menus for different parts of the day, add preset happy hour discounts or specials, and let your team switch between menus in a tap. Need to make changes? Be our guest—no service calls needed.

Keep your point of sale secure with roles and permissions.

Assign roles to your team, like server or manager, and set their level of access and what they can do. Give everyone their own passcode so you can track who’s doing—and selling—what.

When you dim the lights, so do we.

Don’t let your point of sale ruin the vibes (or blind your servers). Switch to Dark Mode for a low-light-friendly display.

Easy and expedited reports for every little thing.

Track every cover

Run floor plan reports that break down covers by section so you can make the right tweaks to turn customers into regulars.

Predict the future

See how each drink and liquor is performing, then use that data to precisely forecast and purchase the stock you need.

Multiple bars, one account.

Whether you run one or many bars, manage them all from the same account. Access and update all your menus, employees, and reports—plus make bulk changes that apply to multiple locations.

Hardware that holds up at top speed.
