Summer Party Bar Ideas
Memorial Day weekend marks the official start of outdoor summer fun, backyard parties, camping and local festivals.
Hot Grill, Cold Beer and Good Times
Having the right party equipment on hand makes for a more enjoyable event that friends will remember for years to come. Here’s a couple of great outdoor party bar ideas for your next gathering.
1. The EHBP-01 Straight Bar Design:
Basic Bar Design
This easy to build beer bar can be used either indoors or outdoors, but in the summer, it makes a great festival or backyard party bar.
Interested in making a little extra money over the summer months?
Here’s a great business idea for you – Some of our more enterprising builder’s have made small fleets of these bars, loaded them up on a landscaping trailer and rent them out for weddings and festivals. Easy enough for two men to move, you can line multiple units up for a very long beer bar or wrap them around corners for rectangular configurations.
The sink shown in the image is optional.
Feeling Tropical? The EHBP-01 can be quickly made into a tiki bar by adding some bamboo and thatch trim. It’s just one of the many plans available at Barplan.com.

2. Jockey Box Delivers Cold Beer Fast!
One of the biggest problems with backyard parties is how to keep the beer keg cold and how to do it fast! Dropping a tepid 1/2 barrel into a tub of ice will work, but only if you do so 8 hours or more in advance.
When the beer runs out and you need cold beer fast, the only answer is the Jockey Box! You simply fill the chest cooler with ice, connect your warm beer keg to the back and start enjoying cold beer without the wait. Works by circulating the beer through a long length of stainless tubing immersed in icy cold water. Uses less ice than simple tub systems and lasts many hours longer.
Buy one and rent it to your friends and it will pay for itself in a few short parties – Click here to learn more about the Jockey Box Beer Cooler System.
3. EHBP-5 Portable Party Bar:
Similar to the EHBP-01 design, the EHBP-05 is a portable mini bar that breaks down into 5 or optionally 6 easy to transport sections. This makes a great portable bar for backyard parties, poolside or patio bars, concerts, sporting events or camping.
This project can be nominally re-sized using the custom bar designs, included with your membership to the Barplan.com site.
Imagine having a bar in your campsite? You’ll be the life of the party! You may even get a visit from the Warden and he may never leave! (ouch!)
This bar can be built in one day using the easy to build plans at Barplan.com – Click here to learn more about the portable bar
Note: The EHBP-05 Party Bar is also available as an L-Shaped Portable Bar Project in the l-shaped portable bar.
