Building a Beautiful Custom Basement Bar

If you’re the type of person who likes to entertain, you might be dreaming about a custom basement bar when envisioning your future home. A personalized bar means a space that reflects your style, personality, hobbies, and passions. 

Consider these basement wet bar ideas or come up with your own.

Three Unique & Inspiring Basement Bar Ideas

At ADŌR Bespoke Homes, we have been able to create all kinds of custom basement bars for our clients. If you have a specific idea in mind, we’d love to hear all about it.

Sports Longue

Whether you’re a Vikings, Twins, Gophers fan (or even a Packers fan), a sports lounge is ideal for watching the game with friends. With personalized screen and speaker installation, create the ultimate watch-party site. You’ll also want plenty of room to store and pour your favorite kegs, so your top choice is always on tap!

Stylish Speakeasy 

One hundred years later, speakeasy bars are making a comeback. With 1920s-inspired art deco and dark wood accents, turn your basement into a piece of the past, with modern conveniences, of course. 

This is the ideal place to host parties that feel like you’re stepping into a different world. Show off a vintage bourbon collection or curated art pieces, throw on a jazz record, and party like it’s going out of style. 

All-Inclusive Sleek & Stylish Bar 

If you plan on hosting, why not add the Perlick and Wolf Subzero appliances you want with a custom kitchenette. Our team can easily incorporate a fridge, dishwasher, custom storage, wine and beer coolers, and a second oven without making the space too crowded or cluttered. Add in custom bar-ware and get ready to become a mixologist in your own home.

Must-Haves for Your Custom Basement Bar

Of course, the design is up to you, but here are a few key elements we strongly recommend for every basement bar:

Bar Counter & Seats. This one is a no-brainer. You want a comfortable place for you and your friends to cozy up.

Running Water Access. You’ll be glad to have running water when you’re looking to rinse out those bar glasses at the end of the night. Although, having a dishwasher installed is even better!

Plenty of Storage. You want room to house bar tools, garnishes, and everything else you’ll need for a good time. Floating or open shelves are a gorgeous way to show off stemware or bottles. 

Ambient Lighting. Regardless of your style, good lighting creates the right mood. Our design experts can help suggest and install beautiful selections to brighten up your basement.

A Stunning View. If your home is on a lake, why not enjoy it? Custom doors open up so you can enjoy the lake breeze while sipping on a pint or two.
