For both locals and visitors alike, destinations like Palm Beach, Jupiter and Boca Raton are a sun seekers’ paradise. Whether they are year-round residents here for the legendary golf and country club life or visitors from around the world looking to relax on our long sandy beaches, everyone on the Gold Coast also enjoys our amazing dining scene.

For restaurants, bars, and hotels looking to maximize their guests’ enjoyment and drive revenue for their businesses, creating welcoming covered outdoor dining is a must.

Benefits of Adding Covered Outdoor Dining for Restaurants, Bars & Hotels

First, let’s explore what does outdoor covered mean for your hospitality business. There are some unique benefits to adding a covered outdoor dining area to your establishment including:

  • Increased seating capacity – Outdoor dining spaces provide additional seating options without the need for constructing a new indoor dining room. This allows you to accommodate more customers without expanding your infrastructure.
  • Diversify the dining experience – Covered outdoor seating areas can be designed to match the existing aesthetic of your indoor spaces or offer a distinct ambiance that differs from your restaurant's interior. By creating an upscale indoor setting alongside a casual outdoor patio, you can cater to the preferences of all your customers.
  • Provide all the comforts of indoor dining – With the right pergola for restaurants, your outdoor dining space can feature motorized louvered patio covers. These covers can be opened on sunny days to provide a pleasant atmosphere, and they can be tightly closed to protect against unfavorable weather conditions.
  • Drive revenue – Apart from the expanded seating capacity, covered outdoor dining areas that are suitable for all weather conditions allow you to confidently book the space regardless of the forecast. This reliability can lead to a boost in revenue for your business.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Structure for Your Covered Outdoor Dining Area

When upgrading your restaurant, bar or hotel with a luxury outdoor dining space, relying solely on simple patio umbrellas or sun shades can be quite limiting. Not only do they provide partial shade protection, but they also offer inadequate shelter from rain showers and lack durability as long-term solutions.

Among available patio cooling solutions, the optimal choice for hospitality settings is a modern aluminum adjustable louvered roof pergola. There are several compelling reasons to select such an advanced structure, including:

  • Durability – High-grade aluminum pergolas are ideally suited to withstand the humid and often rainy weather conditions in South Florida. Unlike wood, which is susceptible to rot, durable aluminum pergolas ensure that your investment will last a lifetime.
  • Functionality – Today’s modern louvered roof pergolas are equipped with electric motors, allowing you to effortlessly open and close the louvered roof. This functionality enables you to control the amount of sunlight or shade reaching the outdoor diners. It also enables you to close the louvered roof completely to block out the sun or rain, ensuring uninterrupted business regardless of the weather.
  • Technology – Our aluminum pergolas are full of high-tech advancements to maximize the potential of your outdoor dining space. We can integrate motorized retractable insect screens to keep the mosquitos at bay or privacy curtains that can be lowered to create private dining spaces. Our hospitality clients also appreciate the intuitive sensor array that can be embedded to monitor the weather and automatically close the louvered roof when a rain shower is detected.
  • Style – Our design team can also fully customize the exterior powder coating for your covered outdoor dining space. In addition to standard colors such as black, white, and bronze, we can color match any hue so the outdoor space can perfectly match the restaurant’s existing color schemes. Furthermore, we can apply a wood grain coating to the pergola, adding warmth and comfort to the outdoor space.
  • Storm Rating – The pergolas we design are always built to meet the strict storm resistance regulations prevalent throughout South Florida. Our manufacturing partner, Azenco, has even secured a Miami-Dade Certification of Acceptance for its pergola designs, which expedites the approval process for storm resistance reviews.

Inspirations – Covered Outdoor Seating Designs SYZYGY Global Has Built

Here at SYZYGY Global, we are experts in collaborating with South Florida’s most sought-after restaurants, private clubs, and renowned local businesses. We have successfully designed and constructed numerous award-winning outdoor covered dining spaces throughout the region. Below is just a sampling of these projects to provide you with some outdoor bar inspirations.

Boca West Country Club

Our design team partnered with the prestigious Boca West Country Club to create a first-of-its-kind outdoor dining space for the club’s Mr. D’s 19th hole restaurant. This groundbreaking project not only doubled the restaurant's seating capacity but also introduced an interactive driving range facility for guests to enhance their golf skills or host private events, all within the expansive shelter of a sprawling pergola.

Jonathan's Landing Golf Club

At Jonathan’s Landing Golf Club, the outdoor dining area of the clubhouse is situated on an elevated deck, providing a breathtaking view of the intersecting waterways and golf courses. SYZYGY Global crafted a remarkable 1,400 square foot motorized louvered roof pergola, ensuring diners are shielded from the midday sun and unexpected rain showers. This addition of the pergola created over 50 additional seats without the need to expand the building's footprint.

Tiger Woods’ PopStroke

As PopStroke continues to expand its unique experiential golf entertainment facilities throughout the United States, SYZYGY Global was selected to design and build the rooftop covered outdoor dining area. The SYZYGY team has successfully completed multiple projects with PopStroke in Glendale, AZ and Katy, TX, and more locations are expected to open in South Florida soon.
