A stand-up buffet is the best option for informal communication. It is usually organized when within relatively short time it is necessary to receive a large number of guests. A stand-up buffet suits business, but not too formal meetings. Guests, as a rule, eat standing, and they are free to move around the dining room, to select dishes and beverages. A few large tables are decorated as minibars, with strong and soft drinks. The menu of a stand-up buffet mainly consists of a large number of cold starters. They are divided into small portions, so that they can be eaten standing, with a fork only. Hot starters are also often included into the menu of stand-up buffets.
