Toast the Irish in a Home Bar with More Than a Wee Bit of Style

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and may the luck of the Irish be with you today! Especially for those who love to entertain, a home bar acts as a central gathering place for festive occasions from March 17th to Christmas. Having a home bar doesn’t necessarily mean stocking it with dozens of liquors – some people love to serve soft drinks from their bar as well. But, if you are interested in exploring the world of fine whiskeys, wines, liquors, and mixes, having a home bar is a comfortable and stylish way to share the spirit of discovery. With a wet bar custom designed for your home and lifestyle, you can serve, wash up, and store your glassware and bar accessories all in one place. Let’s drink in some of our favorite inspirations for home bars.

Historical Hideaway
In this 1937 historical home with a new addition inspired by British and French design ideas, the bar is tucked away like a sparkling jewel. Framed by an open doorway with meticulous molding, the bar’s gorgeous textured custom wallpaper acts as a dramatic backdrop for glass and brass shelving. Rich blue cabinetry with brass hardware emphasizes the luxurious mood.

Old World Glamour
This gleaming bar designed to seat several guests is in a colorful historical home owned by a young family who love to entertain and often hire a bartender for festive occasions. Glittering pendant lights make a statement with a shape that evokes rare crystals. The graceful arched niches are dedicated to displaying the husband’s prized whiskey and scotch collection.

Brilliant Irish Pub
The bar design in this traditional home was designed to echo an authentic Irish pub with an extra shot of elegance. Rich materials, including a substantial granite countertop in intense tones, imbue the bar with memorable charm. The connection between the bar and the kitchen is effortless, with ample storage and surfaces making entertaining a joy.
