Here are some ideas and examples to try, get inspired!

Outdoor/Indoor Bar

The coolest idea if it fits your home is organizing an outdoor/indoor bar. The idea is the following: make a large window in the kitchen – sliding, foldable, going up or any other that you like and then attach a bar counter on the outside. Place some cool stools and voila, a cool bar is ready! Make your outdoor space livelier with potted greenery and flowers, add various decorations and maybe cover the bar to protect yourself from too much sun. Keep your outdoor bar in the same style as your indoor spaces adding decor touches and enjoy staying there and having drinks!

Foldable Bar

A is a classic foldable bar that can be attached to the wall anywhere you like, and it contains both a storage space and a bar counter. The main problem is to make it stable for having drinks, then just add stools and that’s it. You may also find some wall-mounted foldable bars with a simpler construction, which are also very comfortable. They have an advantage of taking less space than a murphy’s bar, so they are suitable even for the smallest spaces like balconies. Both a murphy’s bar and a usual foldable one can be DIYed, so look for some tutorials and go make one!
