We’ve raised the bar on bar operations.

Square for Restaurants

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.

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.

Get reports tailored to bars: covers by section, item and modifier sales, customer frequency—if it hits the bottom line, we’ve got a report for it.


There’s more. A lot more: employee time tracking, location management, customer profiles, and—you guessed it—more.

Accept the latest in payments with bar-ready hardware.

Create your perfect point of sale with our range of bar and wall-mounted stands and accessories. Take payments at 2.6% + 10¢ per tap, dip, or swipe—no need for a separate payments processor.

Let’s talk about a custom rate.

We can create custom pricing packages for some businesses with annual revenue over $250K and an average ticket size over $15. If that’s you, get in touch—we’ll even review your current statement with you. An average ticket size under $15 is unlikely to qualify for a custom rate.
