How to Create the Ultimate Home Bar

3rd July 2020

The hospitality sector could remain either fully or partially closed for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be bored all summer. There is something that you can to replicate the experience of going out to a bar, that being to create one in your own home! As long as you have adequate room on your property, a healthy amount of cash to fall back on, and a lot of patience, nothing is stopping you from taking on this DIY challenge.


With a socially distant summer on the horizon, everybody is now clambering to bring the outside world into their homes. One of the easiest ways to do that is to build your own home bar. To find out how this can be achieved, be sure to read on.


Give your bar a quirky appeal


Do you want this project to be the talk of the town once lockdown restrictions are lifted, and you are allowed to start welcoming guests to your home? If so, you need to give your bar a quirky appeal. All of today’s best and most lavish cocktail bars are designed in a trendy, unique, and somewhat eccentric manner and your home bar should follow suit!


You will have plenty of options available to you when you decide to push the boat out and give your bar a quirky appeal, that much is for certain. If you really want to make this project stand out from the crowd and draw attention, you should seriously consider investing in heavy duty shelf brackets. Not only are these storage units incredibly practical, but they also help to create an industrious chic that is definitely on-trend.


Invest in the right equipment


If you don’t invest in the right equipment, you’ll never be able to call yourself a full-fledged home bar owner. You need to be able to provide your guests with the kind of experience they would expect to receive in a real bar, which is why you need the right tools at hand.


For those of you that have never spent time working behind a bar before, here’s a comprehensive list of all the equipment you’re going to need to invest in if you want to make your home bar look and feel legitimate:


•   Chopping boards

•   Paring knives

•   Different size glasses

•   Long spoons

•   Ice cube trays

•   A cocktail shaker (if you want to save money, simply use a pickle jar after it has been thoroughly cleaned)

•   A sieve

•   A muddler

•   An ice machine

•   Bar measures

•   Ice buckets



It’s true, you don’t have to go out to have a good night out! If you put all of the advice laid out above into practice, you can enjoy a night at a bar without even leaving your humble abode. 


Whatever you do, just don’t start charging for drinks when you are eventually allowed to invite guests over to your bar, as doing that could land you in serious hot water with the law. Would your home bar really be worth that kind of trouble?
