Spring is here, and as the weather gets warmer, we all want to spend more time outdoors, even if it’s just outside our door (because, honestly, we are all tired of staying indoors). Aside from having backyard picnics and movie nights, creating an outdoor bar can liven up the mood of your home. It can be as simple as a bar cart in the corner or elaborate as a full outdoor kitchen and bar, these outdoor bar ideas will definitely give your backyard (or tiny patio) an instant makeover!


Cinder Block Bar

This cinder block bar proved that an outdoor bar doesn’t have to be expensive. You can easily build one yourself using concrete blocks. Plus, it will stand up to gloomy weather and strong winds. You can also store glassware, shakers, and towels in their hollow shape. However, we wouldn’t recommend a cinder block bar for a home with kids since it may cause accidents.


Free-Standing Wooden Bar

Romantic and simple, a free-standing wooden bar is one of the outdoor bar ideas that is great for entertaining a large crowd. It can also be a nice space to eat dinner or even have coffee on a lazy Sunday morning. Bonus points if you can decorate it with fairy lights.

Kitchen-Side Bar

A kitchen-side bar is perfect if you live someplace sunny and warm most of the year. It’s the perfect spot to eat breakfast or have a cold beer on a hot afternoon.

Mini Bar

A mini bar is one of the outdoor bar ideas that is easy to carry from indoors to outdoors. You just have to add your bar must-haves, and you are good to go! Don’t forget to keep it indoors during the rainy season.


Pallet Bar

A pallet bar works perfectly for small yards since it could be space-conscious. Plus, you could use it for other purposes, such as a lemonade stand or a snack bar.

Potting Bench Bar

Reuse your old potting bench into a stylish outdoor bar! It’s one of the outdoor bar ideas that is a great and inexpensive solution to entertain guests.


Small Bar Cart

If you don’t have enough space, a well-styled small bar cart is the perfect answer! Make your bar cart chic by transferring drinks into pretty glass decanters. Plus, use ingredients, such as citrus fruits, as décor. You can also add a vase of fresh blooms or snacks like candies and walnuts. It will add pops of colors to your plain bar cart.
