Okay, bar sinks. As you can see we are in a bar right now and here's some sinks right in front of me. And traditionally, a bar sinks will have three separate sinks and a one, whatever you call it, counter, one area. The point of the three sinks is, traditionally; one sink for rinsing, one sink for soaping and scrubbing and one sink for sanitizing your glasses. But nowadays most bars have their own dishwashers and you know, these number of sinks isn't really necessary. Here we just fill up up some of them with ice on ice on busy nights and put things like wine and juice on them so we can grab them quickly. But always, always you want to have something like this that you can dump your drinks into so that you cant catch all the straws and pieces of fruit that you'll be discarding from empty glasses because you do not want that stuff ending up in your sink. It will get clog, it will be a mess and it'll be a serious chore cleaning it.
