Amazing Basement Bar Inspiration

In my younger years I dreamed of owning my own pub – I would spend hours dreaming of locations, names and other details of my dream pub. Since then I have altered my focus to the more realistic goal of building an amazing home bar! I often spend evenings longingly browsing Pinterest has provided ample inspiration.

Now that we are inspired how will we create a space like this in our own home?

It’s actually fairly simple! You just need to take care of a few things:


The bar is the centerpiece for the entire room! The biggest decision with the bar is whether to build a custom bar for your space or purchase a piece that is ready to go! Both options can work great!

You want a bar? What will you serve?! It’s important to offer amazing beverages ranging from draft beer to craft cocktails. I love a bar with a specialty – think about featuring craft beer, high end scotch or even your favorite wines.

If you will be hosting frequently make sure you have all the tools to make any drink!

This is your chance to stamp your personality on the basement bar! The options are literally endless – show your sports fandom, classic black and white photos, beer and liquor advertising or even old maps!
