Five Best Bars For The Home

Updated on November 4, 2010

It is so much easier to entertain at home with your own home bar. You won't have to go to bars and clubs to have your drinks and you won't have to go home to a nagging wife if you bring your friends to your home for a few beers. She will already be there. :)

A bar can really look great in a home. It doesn't just add to your lifestyle but it is functional as well. It is a good place to have a man-to-man talk with your son, or flirt with your wife, all within the comforts of your own home. Some might consider it ostentatious, but as we all watch the ever-increasing prices in most bars and pubs, it can actually be a money saver.

These are the best of the best as far as home bars go.

If you only have a small space in which to entertain your friends, this expandable wine bar is a great choice. It transforms from a compact storage unit into a full service entertainment station in seconds.

This Newport Expandable Wine Bar is made of solid wood with a dark walnut finish. It looks vintage and very stylish. It has a stemware holder, an accessories drawer, open shelves and a nine bottle wine rack. This might be small but it definitely gets the job done.

This black bar with chrome accents Bar set looks good both indoors or outdoors - especially if you have a nice garden or pool in your backyard. It has a retro design but it would be a great addition to a modern house. The stools are sold separately, but you could also match it with plain black or stainless steel bar stools if you do not want the matching seats.

This bar has an ample storage space, and will comfortably seat two or three people. Not rugged enough to leave outside during poor weather, it is nonetheless a substantial bar and well worth the $200 price tag. You will need to finish assembling it when it arrives, but nothing major needs doing. Good value for money, stylish bar.

This bar table is really traditional. It is made of wood and a has a rich cherry finish. It is a great dining or bar counter. It has ample wine rack, shelves and sink drawers. A perfect place to talk business or entertain lavishly.

This does require assembly, but is easy to put together, and the antique-look brass footrest reall sets it off nicely.

Good, solid construction and really goes well with the coaster black leather bar stools. The stools are currently on sale at what I consider to be a silly price - around $160 each, Excellent value for money.

This bar is something unique - It is portable, so you can easily move ot from room to room, or outside to a patio. This really makes entertaining more easy and fun. You can just drag this to your living room if that's where you want to have your partyi.

This is a great idea if you have a limited space in your apartment or house. It is made of solid hardwood with heavy duty locking rubber casters. It has raised panel front and sides with extra large levelers for extra stability and folds down to a tiny 43.5" x 27" x 23.5 inches.

Really perfect for smaller spaces - many of these bars can dominate a room when not being used, but this folds away into a corner, making a very nice storage cabinet.

The great cute thing about this product is that it has a versatile design that would not look out of place in a living room or kitchen.This one is more aimed at the wine buff, and comes part assembled. The price of this one has tumbled quite drastically - down from almost $1,100 to less than $460 - well worth the money at that price I feel.
