How to Design an Outdoor Bar

An outdoor bar is a great way to entertain guests and be the “life of the party” no matter what time of year it is. It might sound like a lot of work, but putting together a picture-perfect outdoor patio scene can add value to your home, give you a personal retreat, and be the center of entertainment for friends and family.

The best part? Designing an outdoor bar doesn’t have to be as difficult as it might seem.

With that in mind, let’s look at how you can put together your dream patio with a bar, outdoor pizza oven, and so much more!

Consider Your Space

The first thing you should consider when designing the perfect outdoor patio is how much space you have. It’s not always easy to make your patio seem bigger than it is, so you’ll want to invest in things that maximize the space and utilize every inch of it.

For example, instead of installing a full bar, you might benefit from a rolling bar cart that can be stowed away or brought inside.

If you’re concerned about space, a BBQ pizza oven is a great way to utilize it without causing too much clutter. Outdoor pizza ovens don’t have to take up a lot of space, and they can be the centerpiece and “talk” of any party!

Make Conversions

One way to maximize your space and reduce the amount of waste you’re bringing into play is to repurpose an outdoor kitchen. After all, you won’t need to worry about pots or pans when you’ve got a piping hot backyard pizza at the ready!

If you do/did have an outdoor kitchen, why not repurpose it into a bar area? It can save you time, money, and a lot of hassle.


Find a Focal Point

For the perfect patio, it’s important to have one thing that really stands out—something that draws people in and makes your house the “place to be” for parties. Thankfully, an outdoor pizza oven can do just that. You can throw dozens of pizza parties, people can pick their own toppings and create their own pies, and it’s a great party option for kids and adults alike!

You can also make your furniture the focal point, by designing a seating arrangement that makes people feel comfortable and invited. A central table, outdoor sofa, or chairs can instantly make people want to stay longer and feel more content at your party.
