Default Bar recepts...GFI?

The two recepts for the coolers are just less than 6' from the bar sink. The coolers are on wheels (would matter if they were stationary?). Do these recepts need GFI protection?

Does it meet the definition of a Kitchen?

What you are plugging in does not mater, if receptacle is within 6' of the sink it must have GFCI protection.

that looks more like a food prep area in a kitchen, than a bar.

but, if the receptacles are within 6' of the sink, yes they need gfi.

if this is part of a commercial kitchen, they need gfi no matter where they are.
