Let's face it, having "Home Bars" and drinking at home is something we are pretty much used to by now but are we doing it in style? - After this third lockdown there is no saying how long it will be until Bars & Restaurants can swing open their doors fully for us all to go "out" out, if you get me! and many people may not even want to for a long time, I mean who can blame them!
Let me tell you, my beverage collection during these lockdowns is going up quicker than Regina George's weight when she went on Kälteen Bars **Little Means Girls reference there for anybody confused** but not just my spirits and mixers, my glassware too! Let's face it, if we are going to spend Happy Hour at home, we need to do it in style!
So, whilst scrolling through the web and trying to stop myself from clicking for yet another Amazon delivery I decided to make a blog post dedicated to some of my favourite "Home Bars" that can be bought online to help inspire those who are considering investing in either a Drinks Cabinet or Bar Cart!
The first thing you need to consider is Room, Space, Theme!
Once you know the above finding the perfect one online will be easy with more and more businesses jumping on the trend and widening the range of what's available! Remember to add your own stamp and bring your vision to life but lets talk about the benefits of both a Bar Cart & Drinks Cabinet.
If you follow my Instagram or Facebook you'll know how much I love my bar cart and how often I like to switch up the design which for me was on the key benefits but I love that it's moveable but I can also pack it away under the stairs when not in use or needed! Bar Carts are great for showing off because of the open space so if you want to proudly show off your Spirits and glassware then it's ideal but I personally don't like it when it comes to storage as I LOVE everything to be packed away, the more you have out means the more cleaning / dusting needs to be done. This is where I love having my bar cart as hidden behind those doors you'll find over 35 different gins along with wines and other spirits!
Now let's get down to business and check out some of the most fabulous home bar solutions I have found! Please note I do not own the rights to the photos used, they have come direct from the businesses websites
