Home Bar Basics

In addition to a theme, you’ll need a few basics to get your home bar hopping. Bar equipment, like bottle openers, corkscrews, jiggers, cocktail shakers, and strainers, are important for the cocktail maker. Whisky drinkers need a cool decanter set. If you’re only serving up beer or wine, you’ll want a good corkscrew, bottle opener, and some nice glassware.

Home Bar Themes

Your home bar needs a theme, otherwise it’s just plain vanilla ice cream. While vanilla ice cream is good, why not have a veritable banana split? A cool place. A place where you and your friends enjoy spending time. Your home bar.

Once you’ve decided on a theme, decorating is easy. To get your creative juices flowing, here’s our list of twenty-five home bar themes:

Home Bar Themes: Sports

  • Super Fan – This one’s easy. Pick a team, college or pro, and fit out your bar with ALL the merchandise.
  • Sport Specific – Great for those that just love the sport, or have more than one favorite team.
  • Golf – Your very own 19th Hole, at home.
  • Equestrian – Horse racing is called “The Sport of Kings”, so enjoy your Kentucky Bourbon in this hot spot.

Home Bar Themes: Locations

  • Tiki – Step into your own Trader Vic’s and enjoy a Mai Tai cocktail without leaving home.
  • Beach/Coastal – Soothing tropical winds, an icy cocktail, and some Jimmy Buffet, no matter where you live, the season, or the time of day.
  • Western – Line ’em up, partner.
  • English Pub – Pop down to the Pub for a pint. Don’t forget the darts.
  • Nautical – Anchors aweigh. No grog, though.

Home Bar Themes: Era

  • Hippy/1970’s – Peace signs, macrame, and lots of tie dye. Groovy, man.
  • Vintage Las Vegas – Sinatra, showgirls, and slot machines. Fly me to the moon….
  • Hollywood Glam – Old Hollywood with a bit of Art Deco, and an extra splash of glamor. A place you could picture Joan Crawford hanging out.
  • 1950’s – A jukebox, black & white checkered floor, and a vintage style fridge for a bar that would make Fonzi happy.

Home Bar Themes: Interests

  • Gaming – Perfect for those that are into video games, or board games like Dungeons & Dragons.
  • Card Shark – Poker, Black Jack, or Gin Rummy? Invite the squad over for a night of fun.
  • Superhero – Focus in on a superhero (or a villain!) or a whole universe, like Marvel.
  • Film – Movie posters in your favorite genre or era. 1950’s monster flicks like Frankenstein & Dracula would be pretty cool.
  • Harley – Vroom. Vroom. Black, orange, and trademarked merchandise. Easy peasy.
  • Music – Pick a favorite band or era. 80’s hair bands, anyone?

Home Bar Themes: Style

  • Posh – Channel your inner Thurston Howell, III in this uber luxurious spot.
  • Boho – Enjoy your Moscow Mule (in a copper mug, of course!) amongst some plants in macrame hangers.
  • Fiesta – Bright colors, decorative Mexican tiles, and a few cacti. It can be Cinco de Mayo everyday.
  • Steampunk – A little Victorian luxury mixed in with some industrial elements.
  • Speakeasy – Make sure you know the password to get into this bar, and then enjoy your bathtub gin while
  • Cougar’s Lair – A little bling, a dash of glam, and a spritz of animal prints. Meow.
