Setting Up A Great Bar

Besides the obvious considerations (like what to stock the bar with), here are three other things to consider when prepping your bar for party time:
1. 2. Being a great host or hostess can inevitably involve some prep work, but when it comes to setting up a bar space that your guests can use to serve themselves, prepping can pay off big time. A tray is essential for a great bar — it keeps the contents looking neat and corralled, but also lets guests know that the glasses are clean and ready to use. A key component to setting up a great bar is where it is situated. Not only is it one less thing to think about during the hustle and bustle of a holiday party, but a well-thought-out bar can look great, too. Lighting. 3. Accessories. A good way to do this is by keeping it in a separate space away from the kitchen — like the living room where guests are likely to sit for a drink. Seasoned entertainers know ambience can be everything and lighting your bar area is no different.
