With ‘staying at home’ still the number one choice for most of us at the weekend, there’s never been a better time to build your own bar at home! Whether you’ve chosen a cosy corner in your living room or you’ve planned to build a grand outdoor entertainment space for your nearest and dearest, this year it’s all about staying in and pouring home measures!   

To make your home bar that extra bit stylish, scroll down for our top five quirky home bar essentials and enjoy ‘club casa’ this weekend (and every weekend for that matter!).

1. Reusable Soap Stone Ice Cubes

How many times have you gone to the freezer and discovered an empty ice cube tray?  

It’s annoying right?  

Avoid the frustration and cool down your beverage with a set of reusable soap stone ice cubes instead. Packaged in a cloth freezing bag and presented inside a quirky storage tin, our reusable ice cubes feature a neutral grey finish and can be rinsed and reused time after time for every cold drink. Check out our soap stone reusable ice cubes for Gin and Whiskey.  

2. 6-Piece Copper Bar Tool Set

Missing happy hour cocktails and the menu of fancy options?

Become a cocktail master with a contemporary style 6-Piece Copper Bar Tool Set. Our cocktail making bar set features a strainer, measuring jigger, bottle opener, lime chopping knife, a set of tongs and a stand to hold all your tools. This copper bar tool stands out on the counter with its gorgeous warm copper finish on the tool handles and holder. Highlight your interiors rose gold and copper accents with this practical cocktail tool set.

3. Wall Mounted Wine Rack for Bottles & Glasses

When it comes to storing wine bottles, the best way is to keep all your beverage options at eye-level on the wall of your home bar. A wall mounted bottle holder frees up cupboard space and allows you to monitor your drink levels (so you know when to replenish your bar!). Displaying your red wine collection on the wall gives you and your guests the visual of what’s on offer! Our simplistic iron wire design offers plenty of character with a touch of chic sophistication when customised onto a dark wooden backboard.
