A home’s outdoor living spaces have surged in popularity thanks to the sudden need for them during the height of the pandemic-induced lockdowns. In the post-pandemic era, spaces like a luxury garden bar or outdoor bar continue to be relevant as they present the perfect places for entertaining guests and loved ones while taking in the majestic views of the Mojave.
Here’s what to consider when you decide to create an outdoor bar in your Las Vegas luxury abode.
- MAXIMIZE LOCATION AND SURROUNDING VIEWS
What are the best views surrounding your home? Is there a golf course nearby? Or do you have a roof deck overlooking a lake? Designing an outdoor bar with these views in sight is a great idea. Not only will it enhance the overall aesthetics of your bar but will also provide your guests with a comfortable and relaxing experience.
- BE MINDFUL OF BAR DIMENSIONS AND STORAGE
The ideal height for a bar service counter should be from 42 to 46 inches from the floor to the top of the counter. If you want to have bar stools to come with your outdoor bar, experts recommend buying the stools first. With the stools in place, you can then adjust the height of the bar service counter.
Also, consider adding cabinets at the base of your bar for supplies. But bear in mind that you need your overhang to be around 10 inches from the floor to accommodate guests’ knees when they sit at the counter.
- PAY ATTENTION TO LIGHTING
Choose the right lighting for the type of ambiance you want your outdoor bar to project. Below are the most commonly used sources of illumination for bars due to their functionality and aesthetics:
Pendant lights: These can instantly add a touch of elegance and style to any space; more so, an outdoor bar. All they need for installation is a stable structure to hang them from.
Downlights: With the right placement and aiming, downlights can create a lighting effect that imitates the moonlight. These can be mounted on trees, soffits, under gutters, and other overhangs or positioned in corners so they are mostly hidden from view.
Outdoor string lights: Give your outdoor bar a rustic ambiance by hanging these lights on the bar and surrounding foliage.
- FIND THE BEST DESIGNER OUTDOOR FURNITURE
To complete the overall luxe design of your outdoor or garden bar, you may want to check out furniture from these high-end brands for anything from bar stools to lounge chairs and dining tables and chairs. These include
- Vega Collection
- Somers Furniture
What’s more, these brands are available in furniture shops in the city or have their own showrooms in Vegas.
- ADD AN OUTDOOR GRILL
An outdoor grill is a great partner to your outdoor bar. It allows you to cook your food while talking to your guests. Pair great drinks with your choice of proteins grilled to perfection. Plus, the smell of cooking meat builds the anticipation of a sumptuous meal. Once you’re done grilling, you can proceed to eating – no need to run back and forth between the kitchen and the patio for food items and utensils.
