Bar Cabinets in Home Interior Design and Decor
Bars and booze, these are a few of my favorite things. If you have been keeping up with my long lost Kardashian-self, then you are fully aware of my affinity for fine wines, rooftop paradises lined with liquor, and the occasional good stiff vodka drink. Let’s be serious, living in New York where there are happy hours galore, disco brunches blaring music at 12:00 pm on a Saturday, and enough booze cruises to combat the Spanish Armada, is it even a question as to why New Yorkers love to drink so much?
Whether you’re dressing up in your fashion’s finest and hitting the cobblestone streets of the Meatpacking District (i.e., Le Bain) or heading down to your Thirsty Thursday after-work drink-fest, there comes a point where you may just want to sit back, relax, and be your own bartender for the night.
One of this year’s hottest home furnishings is the BAR CABINET. Yes, ladies and gentleman, now you can be a lush in the company of your own swanky digs. High-end retailers are punching these babies out for the well attuned alcohol aficionado in luxurious wooden finishes.
Looking for that new FOCAL POINT in the living room? Well, look no further! Your own personal bar is available in an array of styles, finishes, and colors. These bad boys range from vintage-inspired looks that will hold your casks of amontillado (well, maybe not a cask) to sleek modern marvels that will have you feeling like a cross between James Bond and George Jetson.
What we especially love about the bar cabinet is its DISCRETION. From the outside that little guy you’ve been eyeing across the room looks like an armoire, a curio, or a sideboard. Little do your guests know, that they will soon be hit with a ticket to the party train thanks to you.
Offer your fellow party animals a cocktail, don’t forget to pour some for your homies, open your shiny new personal bar haven ala The Price is Right, and watch as your friends’ mouths drop to the floor. You may need a mop after the night is through to lap up all that drool from your jealous mates. Cheers!
