Raise a glass to bar essentials (and the people you can rely on to pour a great drink).
Life advice: have a beautiful home bar, or have a friend who has a beautiful home bar. As the holiday season approaches, we’re raising a glass to these six gorgeous drink-making essentials that add a stylish element to home bartending.
These hand-blown, hand-dyed glasses ($105 each) from NY-based Kokomo are sturdy enough to become a go-to but pretty enough to place centre stage on any bar cart. Because the glasses are made individually, each one is completely unique.
Is there anything more chic than a tray full of cocktails and accoutrements? We think not, and the Grib tray ($115) from Copenhagen-based Ferm Living proves us right. With a handy-dandy rounded handle and powder-coated finish, this piece will take you from cozy-by-the-fire to backyard barbecue with ease.
West Elm is bringing glam to the home bar with their brass and marble Deco barware collection ($120). It comes with every tool necessary for an elegant cocktail party.
These handmade glass tiled coasters ($24) from Subtle Art Studio bring some trendy and colourful checkerboard-chic style to any side table. Plus, they are durable enough for both hot items and your favourite frosty drink.
This sleek ice bucket ($80) from Crate and Barrel brings contemporary style with a matte graphite finish and warm acacia wood lid. It’s double-walled so ice stays cold with less condensation, making more time for cocktail sipping and less for counter wiping.
No need to leave the house when you can pour brewery-level suds with this undercounter beverage dispenser ($6,739) from True Residential. If beer’s not the vibe, it’s also configured to pour nitro coffee or cold brew.
