It doesn’t have to be the holiday season to merit setting up a chic little bar at home, in fact what better way to beat the winter blues than a nice cocktail served up in fun vintage glassware.
If you don’t have the space for a cart you can easily create a stylish bar on a small table or even atop a dresser. This antique oak sideboard makes for an ideal bar with the mirrored backsplash and convenient drawers perfect for storing barware utensils and cocktail napkins.
We’ve used an antique oval mirror as a tray to protect the sideboard while mixing drinks and brought out a vintage cut crystal bowl to serve as an elegant ice bucket. Be sure to have a few fresh lemons or limes on hand and a mixer or two.
Now just add your favorite spirits, which can simply be set out in their bottles or transferred to crystal or glass decanters for a more formal touch.
