To open up my very own cocktail bar in the area with 5% of all annual profits going to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

by Dave Gatfield in Yateley, England, United Kingdom

Hi My name is Dave and im a bartender in Wokingham. I suffer from ADHD and Austism Spectrum but I refuse to let my disability get in the way of achieving my dreams. 

As a kid ive always wanted to be a police officer however due to my medical conditions this is now a thing of the past as I am unable to pass the medical for any force. Since getting into the hospitality sector 3 years ago and self funding professional courses in bar tending which include the following

Working and exhibition Flair 


Beer, Wine and Spirit knowledge, production and origins

Free Pour

Bar Management 

Staff Training

Customer Service 

I have since had this dream which i am totally 100% dedicated to and dream of making happened which is to start up and own my very own cocktail bar in the area.

The bar itself will consist of the following 

Draught Lager and Cider

Draught Postmix

Soft Drinks



Alcoholic Cocktails 

Non Alcoholic Cocktails

Kids Cocktails

Adult and Kids meals

Bottled Beers

The Bar will be kept family friendly during the day times with customers who have children vacating the  premises by 9pm.

The bar will not tolarate any form of crime and disorder or abusive or offensive behaviour at all times

The Bar will provide a large seated restraunt area for customers to sit down and eat.

The Bar will provide an over 18's section for those  who wish to come and visit but remain in an adults only section. 

The Bar will provide weekly events such as Quiz Nights, Karaoke, Sports events etc.

The bar team shall consist of those who are experienced and enjoy working in the hospitality sector 

The bar will accept jobseekers who are actively seeking employment and are showing an interest in working in a busy environment

These are just some of the ideas I currently have to offer yourselfs

Unfortunately due to working in a low paid environment, I am struggling to raise the money required to get the ball rolling as I require the money to help with costs towards some of the following.


Building Rent

Hiring Staff

Furnishing the bar


First months stock order

everybody who helps me make this dream come true can expect an invitation to see the opening of the new bar along with free dinner and drinks and a speech from myself. 

As a strong supporter for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, I will donate 5% of all profits made each year towards the charity.

I am currently working on this massive project by myself only and will thankfully and happily take on any and all help offered.

Thank you for taking the time to read my proposition and if you have any questions or comments please let me know

Many Thanks
