Ideas for Your Outdoor Bar

August 8, 2022

Looking for outdoor bar ideas? You’ve come to the right place! An outdoor bar area is perfect for entertainers, and it takes your outdoor area to the next level. Whether you’re looking to build an outdoor area from scratch or just spruce up your existing outdoor space, we’ve got plenty of ideas to get you inspired.  

 Accommodate Your Space: 

A small outdoor bar can be made to fit any space. It’s simple yet effective. You can make a small bar fit a tight space and it still serves its purpose. A small bar space is perfect for single or partnered occupants that enjoy entertaining a few people at a time. A few chairs at the bar are all you need, or you can forget the chairs altogether and opt for some comfy outdoor lounge chairs.  

A medium outdoor bar is ideal for entertaining more than a couple of people. A medium bar is a good size for the average family of 4 along with a few guests. Have a pergola? Put a medium bar under it! Or if you want a pergola, The Covered Patio can help you out! You can create a great outdoor hangout if you include a few other chairs and possibly a built-in firepit for those chilly nights.  

If you entertain large groups or have the space, a large bar is perfect. It can accommodate your guests and include all the bells and whistles, such as a TV, sound system, and plenty of seating. Large outdoor bars are perfect for sports fans that love watching the game. Bring the atmosphere of a sports bar home and make it your own.  

Go Cozy:  

If you want the ultimate cozy outdoor space, consider adding a few lounge chairs around the bar. Hang string lights to add to the vibe. Consider building an outdoor fireplace to up the cozy factor. The Covered Patio also installs outdoor fireplaces, so you can kill two birds with one stone when working with us! 

No one said your movie theater had to be inside! You can set up your bar like a concession and turn your outdoor bar space into your home theater. If you don’t have a TV outside, you can always hang up a white sheet and use a projector to watch the movie.  

Go for the Goal:

Create your very own sports bar in the comfort of your own home! Host your friends and family every weekend to watch the big game. Hang up sports memorabilia and the like from your favorite teams to create the atmosphere. Stock up the outdoor mini fridge with your favorite brews and enjoy the game. 

Go Minimal 

Don’t know what to do with your bar yet? You can always go minimal and figure it out later. Install a standard bar to fit the space and go from there! Our team at The Covered Patio can always help you plan what would work best for you. Consult with us today for ideas to suit your outdoor space!

Budget: How much do you want to spend on your outdoor bar? Keep in mind that outdoor bars can be as simple or elaborate as you want, so there’s a style and price point for everyone. 

Space: Where will your outdoor bar be located? If you have a small space, you may need to be more selective with your features and furnishings. If you have a large space, you can go all out with your design. 

Function: What do you want your outdoor bar to be used for? Outdoor bars are great for entertaining friends and family, and they can be a great addition to any outdoor kitchen or living space. Plus, they’re the perfect gathering spot for enjoying a summer evening or watching the big game.
