An outdoor party bar, whether it’s freestanding or part of a fully equipped kitchen, can significantly transform your backyard and make it a place to relax and entertain.
It can be anything you want, for any taste or budget. Often bar counters are made from repurposed items and materials such as pallets and barrels, and sometimes they are part of the kitchen. Some bar counters are attached to the kitchen, which is inside the house, and are a narrow countertop that connects to the building by a see-through window. Others are modified sheds or playhouses that have been outfitted as a bar.
