Having a party at home doesn’t mean that guests are limited to twisting off a beer cap. Hosts, today, are seen glamming up their home bar by stocking the best of the bar furniture and accessories from round the globe. The best cocktail party chatter happens, not at a 5-star pub, but at your home bar — especially when it’s stylish and comfortable. But, does setting up a home bar sound like a cumbersome job? It ain’t, actually. With some smart buying and innovative thought, you can easily have friends relish an exotic bar experience from the comfort of your couch.
Here’s help on how you can turn your desired space into your friends’ favorite watering hole.
Invest in some smart home bar furniture, liquor cabinets and consoles. While there’s quite a variety available in markets today, classy wooden furniture renders an actual bar-like look. Pick bar stools that are high on appeal as well as utility. You may want to consider the upholstered stools for their chic comfort.
To make a lasting impression, you need not stock a lot of barware. But you shouldn’t miss out on these – ice bag, bar spoon, muddler, jigger, cocktail shaker, strainer, and ice cube trays. Pick a trendy bar set, or store these – glass markers, corkscrew, bottle opener. Decanters and wine holders always look impressive.
As for glassware, you essentially need one set each of short glasses, tall glasses, and stem. To keep it simple, invest in eight to 12 basic stemmed wineglasses for both white and red wine. Or you may pick separate sets of glasses for both. So, follow these helpful hints and host guests over a friendly glass – anytime!
