Setting Up a Home Bar in Your Game Room
When you want to really impress your friends and throw parties they’ll never forget, set up a bar in your game room. You can create custom drinks while having a great time playing billiards, throwing darts, or watching the game on your mounted flat-screen TV. However you want to enjoy it, here are some tips to help you plan for a home bar in your game room.
Refrigeration and Glassware
Most alcohols and liquors do not need to be refrigerated, but many of their mixers taste better if they are chilled. If you do not want to set up a small refrigerator, consider a small freezer to hold the ice. Many drinks taste better—and your guests will probably prefer—a drink that has been chilled with a little bit of ice. If you want to have a fully-functioning bar , consider purchasing sets of specific glassware. The three basic types include a tall glass, short glass, and one with a stem. Depending on how many guests you plan to accommodate, you should have at least three glasses per person.
Alcohol and Tools
You do not need to have every alcohol to impress your guests; simply stock a few of the popular brands and their common mixers. You should also have the basic tools of an expert barkeeper. These tools would typically include a cocktail shaker, strainer, muddler, and a bar spoon. Maybe throw in some green olives and cherries, and you will be well on your way as the barkeeper of the group. You can also pick up mixology books online or at your local bookstore to learn how to mix up and serve your guests’ favorites cocktails.
Bars and Barstools
There should always be a place to sit at a party, so why not have comfortable barstools set up next to your fully-stocked bar? You can impress guests with your expert knowledge as a barkeeper, and they can sit down and watch their fellow guests play on the pool table nearby. Your game room will have the perfect atmosphere with your custom-made bar and barstools sitting in the corner.
