However, before you actually get down to inviting people, it's time you take a look at your bar too. Besides being well equipped with booze, a bar needs to be pleasant to look at, easy to use and well kept. Refurbishing your bar or sprucing it a little bit isn't as expensive as you think, if you decide to do it all by yourself.
Thus, once you've narrowed down on the theme, you'll get an idea for the kind of lights you would need to have. For a mellow effect, have spot lights in the cabinet instead on top of the bar.
The other option of seating arrangement at the bar is of lounging couches. They are super comfortable and coveted by most home bar owners these days.
The theme you pick for your bar will actually decide the accessories to be bought, the light effects you need to have, the kind of seating arrangement you will need, and so forth.
Decorating a bar is not as difficult as you think, provided you maintain your focus while decorating the bar. Lastly, to add the finishing touches, stash up your bar with the most exquisite booty!
