Paradise Cocktail Bar Strategy Overview

Making ice is probably the biggest obstacle in getting 3 stars.  Increasing patience and upgrading the juices and ice maker are key.  Getting the Automatic Ice Maker is also very important.  It appears around Level 27 and will cost 40 gems, so save up before you begin playing any level above 20.  You will only have 72 hours to buy it.  Until you have the Automatic Ice Maker, you'll need to change your playing strategy.  Limit customers to one or two at a time by leaving money on the counter.  While a customer is waiting on an iced cocktail, bring in another customer.  There's a very good chance the new customer won't need ice and will want a different flavor drink.   By upgrading your tabletop, you can always have one glass with ice available

See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy. 

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Continually click on your Ice Maker throughout the level so that it is always creating ice.
  • Mix up different fruits to make exotic juices and smoothies
  • Create drinks that are visual and gastronomical masterpieces
  • Quench the customers thirst right on the beach
  • Never leave a juice blender empy - make all juice flavours in advance
  • Don't leave the ice too long - it will melt
  • Use every spare second to create more ice
  • Making ice is probably the biggest obstacle in getting 3 stars.  Increasing patience and upgrading the juices and ice maker are key.  Getting the Automatic Ice Maker is also very important.  It appears around Level 27 and will cost 40 gems, so save up before you begin playing any level above 20.  You will only have 72 hours to buy it.  Until you have the Automatic Ice Maker, you'll need to change your playing strategy.  Limit customers to one or two at a time by leaving money on the counter.  While a customer is waiting on an iced cocktail, bring in another customer.  There's a very good chance the new customer won't need ice and will want a different flavor drink.   
  • Cola and Sausage upgrades increase prices
  • The best advice is to upgrade your tabletop to hold the maximum number of glasses and keep each glass filled with a different juice at all times.  That way you can add ice and garnishes as needed.
  • Cotton Candy upgrades increase price by 5 coins
