If you are given the choice of what glasses you should use in your bar or club, then you may want to know that it is actually a fairly big decision. You have to decide whether it will be safe to have glass in the bar, as well as what sort of image you want to portray.
If it is a rowdy bar where glass would be smashed (and potentially used as a weapon) then you will have to use plastic glasses. But if your bar is laid back and classy, then it may be imperative to have glass, simply to complete the look of the bar!
One other option that you can take (which is much safer and adheres to RSA Course safety guidelines) is to rotate between glasses in the day and plastic glasses at night, as it usually gets a little more crowded and rowdy at night!
Using plastic wine and champange glasses has become more popular for many occassions
For a long time we have been stressing the benefits of plastic wine glasses. Increasingly, plastic champagne glasses and flutes have been proving popular amongst bars, clubs, holiday home owners, yacht owners and those who love to hold outdoor events at their house.

Plastic champagne glasses offer the benefit of being virtually unbreakable. Because they are constructed from polycarbonate, an ultra-strong polymer that can withstand huge amounts of force, they won’t break or chip when dropped. Thus, this makes them ideal for use around the pool, home and at bars. Swish Plastic agrees – “We’re seeing a huge increase in the number of champagne glasses sold. They’re almost overtaking plastic wine glasses as our most popular type of plastic glass.”
There are many different styles of plastic wine glasses available today. The most popular is the traditional shaped glass, which looks and feels like traditional glass champagne flutes. Of course, there are a multitude of different glasses available depending on the occasion. You’ll be able to celebrate in style with a quality polycarbonate champagne glass.
Whatever your choice, remember that you have to complete the RSA Course first, before you can work in a bar or restaurant in Australia.
