However, if your collection of liquor is extensive and requires electrical appliances such as a refrigerator and wine cooler, then the selected location must have electrical points. Furthermore, a complete mini home bar should include an eat-in counter for snacks, with accompanying bar stools too!

3. Outdoor Bar
The balcony is considered an integral extension of a home, especially since outdoor entertainment is increasingly getting popular with the guests. Thus, if your balcony is spacious, you can consider utilizing the area as an outdoor drinking place too.
Tip: Use only weather resistant materials so that the furnishing is able to withstand the damage from direct sunlight and rain. In addition, you should also consider the placement of the power sources as you may need to run electrical power into the balcony.

4. Wet Bar
A wet bar is different from a dry bar since a wet bar includes a sink. So, aside from mixing alcoholic beverages, the wet bar allows for wine glasses to be cleaned conveniently and for you to attend to accidental drink spills.
Tip: The water and electricity must be set up while setting up a wet bar.
