A home bar is one thing that most adults should have in their homes. Even if you’re not a drinker yourself, you should have something on hand to offer guests when they come over for an evening of food and conversation. You’ll need the right setup, the right tools, and the right recipes handy to have the perfect home bar. Whether you have a bar already or are looking to build your own, we have all the tips that you’ll need as a rookie bartender.  


The Essentials


You’ll need quite a few essentials in your home bar including but not limited to:


  • Glasses
  • Bitters
  • Bar tools
  • Recipe books
  • Spirits
  • Mixers
  • Garnishes

Find The Right Surface To Transform Into A Bar


You can easily transform any table, sideboard, or cart into a bar. If the vessel that you’re using has a drawer, that’s even better. You can keep all of your bottles, glasses, decanters, and openers in one convenient place. It’s not bad if you can’t fit all of your supplies in one place. Less used items can be stored in the pantry. 


You can even use a simple bookshelf to store all of your bar supplies. Transform any bookcase from “boring bookshelf” to home bar in no time. You can arrange the shelving by category, giving each shelf a purpose. You can keep spirits on one shelf, glasses on another shelf, tools on another, and recipe books on another shelf. 


Does Your Home Have An Actual Bar Built-In?


Many homes actually have bars built in, but people rarely use them because they feel inexperienced in using the bar tools of the trade. Whether you have a full wet bar or a simpler dry bar, keep all of the essentials there. You’ll need:


  • Bar towel
  • Trash can
  •  Glasses
  • Decanter
  • Bar spoon
  • Strainer
  • Shaker
  • Access to ice
  • Juice
  • Sodas
  • Juicer
  • Limes
  • Lemons
  • Jigger
  • Simple Syrup
  • Old fashioned glass
  • Peeler
  • Mesh strainer

Location Of The Bar


If you’re setting up a brand new bar, there’s a variety of places that you can put the bar. If you have space in the kitchen, you can add it to a corner right there. Other great places for your bar could be a den or a man cave. Wherever you’ll spend time hanging out with company is a good place to keep your bar. If you have children, you might even consider getting a locking cabinet system for your liquor. You don’t want little hands getting into what they’re not supposed to.  


Setting up your own home bar is something to be proud of. It will be quite the conversation piece when guests come over. You’ll be able to discuss your collection of liquors and see if friends have any recommendations as to what you might add to your selection of liquors. A home bar is an entertaining essential.

Remember how excited, happy and nervous you felt days before you moved into your current home? It was the perfect house, meeting you and your family’s needs. Hard to believe several years have passed since then. It may also be hard to believe that you’re actually considering moving into another house. But, moving just might be the right option. Makeup of a new city - Face it. You felt more curious, connected and happy when you visited a relative or friend at their home in another city. Culture, vibe, entertainment options and natural landscapes in the new area appeal to you. Moving to a new city might be just what you need to feel revitalized. Before you move to a new city, stay in the city for at least a week, this time without visiting family. It's a good way to learn more about the city and find out if you really want to move. Neighborhood changes – If crime in your neighborhood has increased, adding another lock on your house doors and windows may not be the best option. Instead, it may be time to move to a better, less crime ridden, city. Argumentative neighbors, an increase in untrained neighborhood pets and congested traffic are other reasons why moving may be a good option. Family Size – Adult children leaving home to embark on their own could cause your house to feel too big. After your adult children leave, you may also desire to relocate and move closer to your siblings or parents. Similar to empty nesting, plans to have children could inspire a move. Infants and toddlers becoming teenagers may require added privacy or the need for growing children to have their own bedroom instead of sharing a room with one to two siblings. Marital status – Get married, separated or divorced and you may not have much of a choice as to whether or not you’ll move to a new home. The move could help you to accept other transitions that your marital status change brings into your life. Moving into a new house may also help you to feel empowered, certain that you can thrive on your own or with your new spouse. Career – Opportunity to work a better job in another city or neighborhood may inspire a move. These career opportunities could come through a company led relocation, market shifts or a job search. Moving to a new area could also introduce you to employers, new clients you could support as an independent contractor, franchise or government agency work opportunities that you were previously unaware of. Your current house itself may also be a reason to move. The number of home repairs required to keep your house in good condition may have increased, possibly even doubling, since you bought the house. Construction or local zoning laws may have had a negative impact on sewage and water sources where you live. These are times when moving may be a good option.
