Outdoor patio bars come in many styles and designs to fit your outdoor entertaining lifestyle. An outdoor patio bar can make the difference between an outdoor party that is so-so or one where everyone you’ve invited feels at home and comfortable.
An outdoor patio bar is an excellent way to keep your party outdoors which limits the amount of traffic going through your home. Clean up after your party is then contained to your outdoor area which will make your outdoor entertaining experience much more relaxing.
One of your first decisions for an outdoor patio bar is whether you want a wet or dry bar. A wet bar offers convenience and will provide a great touch to your deck or patio. A refrigerator and sink are a couple of options that will make a wet bar complete. The downside to this particular type of outdoor patio bar is the added expense to install plumbing for water and drainage.
An outdoor patio bar that is considered a dry bar is more flexible and less expensive. Dry bars typically do not have running water or refrigerators. They do have plenty of storage for glasses, alcohol and other drinks. One advantage for a dry outdoor patio bar is the portability. Certain styles come with wheels that allow you to place it where you want, and moving because of the weather or just needing it in a different place because of the party situation.
You can either purchase your outdoor patio bar or if you are a do-it-yourself type individual, there are a number of plans that will help you build the perfect bar that will fit your needs. And you can always use the money you’ve saved to stock your new outdoor patio bar with your favorite refreshments.
