With the seventies trending big time right now in interiors, we’re re-living low, laid-back sofas, cane furniture, and indoor plants. Honestly, it was only a matter of time before the home bar would re-emerge too! I know what you’re thinking… but this is not a ‘straight to the pool room’ type of freestanding bar!

The home bar has been reinvented. Think smart, built-in joinery (if you’ve got the luxury of building) or a delightful drinks trolley, or even just a dedicated tray with some snazzy cocktail accessories.

Now that home entertaining is finally back, it might be time to give your alcohol station a bit of the old razzle-dazzle. Don’t worry… we got you!
