Creating a cocktail bar design:

don’t design your bar on a cocktail napkin

Typical home bar projects start out with a few friends and a few rounds of cocktails. A wrinkled napkin becomes the palette for a rough draft but missing a few small but essential details. On a home bar, there can be surprisingly many.

The end result is more of a “cockeyed” bar than a cocktail bar. What can you expect from a cocktail napkin plan? Don’t reinvent the wheel.  Save time by consulting our time tested collection of bar designs.

Our plans are your guide to getting it done right the first time. Years of experience and bar knowledge are packed into our site.

Classic Cocktail Bar – ready for action

It’s Not Rocket Science:

Sure, blurry eyed designs will work and a bar build is hard to screw up, but if you tried and failed or your design was simply cleaned up by the waitress, we have you covered. Our designs use the perfect dimensions for a comfortable cocktail bar.

Our design approach saves the cocktails and napkins for the end of the construction process. We provide plans in a variety of configurations for any budget. No guesswork, just head to the store with your shopping list.

Cocktail Bar Applications:
