The concept of a home bar never really occurred to me until my family moved into a larger house. With a new home and more space, it didn’t take long before I was bit by the entertaining bug. My husband and I are social drinkers, a cocktail here or there, but having a well stocked bar of fine liquors and G-rated beverages may not be such a bad idea.
After the hustle and bustle of a long day who wants to stand behind a velvet rope to spend money on overpriced, water-down beverages? Relax at home and invite a few friends over. With these amazing custom and semi-custom bars, your place is the hottest ticket in town. No reservations required.

Here, a mini bar is built-in to a custom work station. How convenient for those days when happy hour can’t come fast enough.

I love the idea of a multi-functional refreshment station. This combination consists of an espresso machine for the morning caffeine jolt and wine storage for the evening nightcap.
