Save Time

Our bar, winery and brewery customers save an average of 5-10 hours each week with our simplified scheduling and timesheets. Spend less time managing schedule changes and shift trades, and more time serving your customers.

Reporting built for bars and breweries

With Homebase, you can optimize your labor around key data like weather, sales, and overtime laws.  Ensure you are staffing on the right days at the right times with our reporting and forecasting tools. Homebase is great for seasonal businesses too, like wineries that are only open in the summer, or bars with private event spaces.

Stay connected even when you aren't onsite

Send messages to your entire team, just a few employees, or an individual right from the free app.  Use shift notes and the manager log to let your team know about deliveries to track, special instructions, VIPs, and anything else.

Support from former bar managers

Liza was the manager of Deluca’s Italian Restaurant in Miami. Because Liza used to hate running payroll, she loves working with other bar managers to make their payroll day way more bearable. Along with other former managers like Madeline that make up our support team, she’s here to help.

Tips and Tricks for Bar Scheduling

Schedule to your team’s strengths

Maybe your friendliest bartender isn’t the most efficient, and your fastest bartender doesn’t like talking to customers. Schedule the friendliest bartender for the slower days, and put your most efficient bartender on duty during Friday and Saturday nights. It’s a win-win — most likely, your bartenders will enjoy those shifts more, and both will likely end up with more tips.

Prioritize schedules for your best employees

If you have employees that are particularly exemplary employees, try your best to schedule around their preferences. Scheduling software makes this easy, and it helps if you schedule your whole team as far in advance as you can — doing so will also give everyone a chance to trade shifts if they need to. With bars and breweries, tips can vary widely based on the day of the week and the time of the day, and there are almost certainly universally desirable shifts (like Friday and Saturday nights at a bar, or Saturday and Sunday afternoons at a winery). Use this as an incentive when scheduling to keep your best employees excited about the opportunity.
