Bistro or café lighting is a hugely popular modern decorating trend. We specialise in supplying light fittings to restaurants, bars, cafes and hotels but find that our assortment of styles look great both in your home or commercial premises.

Cafe LIGHTs for all types of interior design

A cafe is a large (or small) room with tables, until you add a touch of decor and a good lighting design!  At Fritz Fryer we know the importance of atmosphere and ambience. Creating a special experience for your customers and making them want to return is top of our list of priorities.

Whether you are looking for a cutting edge, quirky or contemporary feel to the lighting design in your cafe, or whether a more traditional lighting scheme is your goal, we can help.  From antique chandeliers to designer pendant lights or your own bespoke lighting design we will help you find the perfect lights to serve coffee by.

The cocktail bar at Dark Horse in Stratford features our Hereford Globe Pendant Light pendant lights in a variety of sizes hung at various heights over the bar.

The most effective cafe lighting creates intimate pools of light, where your customers can feel that they are almost alone in their own company.  This is often achieved with pendant lighting, hanging from the ceiling by a twist flex cable or chain and directing the light downwards beneath it.  It may be highly functional with an industrial feel, or simple and elegant, like our modern glass pendant lights or sellack lanterns which look great hung in a line over a counter top.

Fritz Fryer Lighting can offer a wonderful selection of pendant lighting to suit any theme or colour scheme, and if we don't have what you are looking for, then we'll make it. Our custom made lighting design service is often used by shops, cafes or restaurants looking for a truely unique feel. A one-off, tailor made design can help cement your brand identity to your customers, or create a unique talking point in a restaurant or pub.

Multiple branch lighting offers even more scope for creativity, with everything from traditional crystal chandelier styles to extravagant modern creations that are a talking point in themselves.  How about a chandelier made of coffee cups or dessert spoons?  One customer who owns a cycle hire centre went one further and commissioned a chandelier based on a traditional design but made from bike wheels, chains and cogs.

At Fritz Fryer we like to offer something unique that your customers can associate with you. At The Railway Inn, Cheltenham we converted copper kettles into pendant light fittings. From striking bespoke designed chandeliers, to simple glass pendant lights, all are made in the UK, by hand and of the upmost quality.

We are proud to have created lighting schemes and supplied lights for many cafes, restaurants, shops and hotels including many unique independants as well as chains such as Ask Restaurants, Jamies Italian, Prezzo, Brasserie Blanc, Caffe Nero, Cotes Brasserie, Jack Wills.  Our flexible approach to design makes us perferct for boutique hotels and unique bars across the country and abroad, so please, get in touch and find out how we can help make your lighting scheme something special.
