We are doing some design research on coffee shops design and particularly looking into bar style seating next to the windows. This is a cool trick and works both ways for the Client and for the cafe owner. Those bar style seating areas are perfect for customers who came alone and do not feel like taking the whole table and might potentially feel awkward , catching other people glances. Seating facing the street gives you both entertainment as you can see what is happening outside and at the same time you get some privacy. For cafe it works as a marketing tool, as a live advertisement, showing that their business is doing well and there is chance to show what is being served.

Bar stools come in different heights and you need to make sure they work fine with your table height as well. 

We quite like how they incorporated lighting pendants above the table, making it look more cosy.
