Top 10 Home Bars and Corner Bars: Reviews and Buying Guide!
Last updated 7th February, 2021

Finding the right home bar furniture for your kitchen, dining room or mancave can feel a bit daunting. It's a big purchase that's likely to take up a lot of space in your home, which means finding the right style, size and shape of home bar or corner is an important thing to get right. The internet is also flooded with them, from professional-looking corner bars that you’ll feel you need an alcohol license for, to the more reserved, stylish home bars or bar cabinets with space for those vintage glasses you always save for special occasions.

We’ve done the hard work for you, trawling through products and reviews from trusted home bar furniture retailers to bring you the very best home bar options on the market. We also have three important questions for you to answer in our buying guide to help you decide on the right home bar unit for you. Once you’ve answered these you’ll be ready in no time to take your pick from our top home bars for sale with al the idea and inspiration you'll need. But before we share our best buys, here's why we think home and corner bars are a worthy investment...

Why Buy a Home Bar?

A space for entertaining

We all have those nights in that stay in our mind for years in the future, with stories from the night being recounted for new and old friends. A great piece of home bar furniture is a great way to transform those casual nights in with friends into something a little more special. There's nothing quite like serving up your signature cocktails or some whiskey on the rocks from your very own home bar. Some of us are born entertainers, so let your creative side out and find a home or corner bar that speaks volumes about the way you want your nights in with friends to go.

A stylish touch to a room

We can all spend weeks, months or sometimes even longer thinking up the most creative ways to add some style and character to the rooms in our house, none more so than a kitchen or dining space designed to share family moments or hosting. A home bar is one of those pieces of furniture that can transform a room, adding something new and different to what can otherwise feel like a typical kitchen or dining area. Because of their nature, home bars are designed to be something special. So why not take the opportunity to add some spark to your home with some of our home bar ideas.

A place to keep your drinks

Let's not forget that home and corner bars have a very functional purchase too. Home bar furniture and cabinets are designed to keep your bottles, glasses and other drinks or accessories out of the way so that they're stored in a safe place that doesn't leave them open to being broken or chipped in a busy kitchen. They also allow you to store everything in the same place so you know exactly where everything is when you need it. This is perhaps even more important if you have a family home with young children running around. Keep your home bar accessories out of sight and out of mind (until you need them...).

Top 10 Home Bars and Corner Bars

1. Traditional Solid Wood Home Bar

The word 'traditional' sums up this wooden home bar unit incredibly well, with its rustic pine or solid oak style (that's right, you get to choose the finish to match your room), and large enough to get behind this bar for your home and really entertain your guests. This home bar is handmade using quality timber and stainless steel rails to give those on the other side of the beer something to rest their feet or hands on, just like a traditional bar would. What we love about this home bar is that you can choose the right size for your space too, not just the style.

2. Charcoal Grey Home Bar Unit

A stunning vintage-style bar set-up complete with two fixed shelves and space for 12 bottles. The storage space is a huge selling-point for this one, so great for entertaining the troops. Its charcoal grey colour with mango wood countertop will add a bit of vibrancy to any kitchen, dining room or mancave. The white writing on the front of this home bar add a brilliantly personal touch and a great bit of style to suit many different spaces for entertaining.

3. Diamond Indoor Home Bar

This home bar or corner bar is a minimalistic yet stylish option, with a bit of character from the smart-looking diamond shape on the front and its solid pine construction. The optional upgrade of castor wheels on the bottom of the unit mean it can be easily moved inside or outside for when the weather allows some entertaining in the garden. The space on top for preparation as well as the space inside for storage or room for a standard mini fridge make it a brilliantly convenient option. For the perfect combination of home bar and mini fridge you can also check out our Best Mini Fridges blog for inspiration. What's more, Liberty Games also have another similar home bar called the Diamond Plus Home Bar that comes with a brilliant white finish.

4. Metal Industrial Home Bar Unit on Castors

If you’re looking for something with serious style but a large home bar feels a step too far, or maybe you’re struggling a little for space, this industrial bar cabinet can be a worthy choice. It’s got space for your drinks and removable shelves at the back, and is on wheels so your guests don’t even need to come to the bar. You can wheel it over to them! Whilst this doesn't offer the vast storage space that some of the larger home bar units might, it's certainly more affordable and perhaps a great introduction to stepping up your home entertainment before making a bigger purchase.

  • Size dimensions: Height: 94cm, Width: 85cm, Length: 40cm
  • Retailer: Maisons Du Monde
  • Price: £

5. SPIGA 2-Door Bar Cabinet

If storage space is what you’re after without breaking the bank, this 2-door bar cabinet from Maison Du Monde is a brilliant option, with a purpose-built wine rack, glass holders and plenty of space for bottles and even accessories. The shelves are adjustable as well to suit your needs! The real appeal of this home bar however, aside from all the functional benefits, is quite clearly the style. It's a great way to add a bit of class and sophistication to a room, and with its slick dark wood finish there aren't too many styles of room that this home bar unit wouldn't fit brilliantly with.

  • Size dimensions: Height: 120cm, Width: 108cm, Length: 50cm
  • Retailer: Maisons Du Monde
  • Price: ££

6. Riya Home Bar Cart

Now we know with this piece of bar furniture we're going a little off the 'home bar' brief, but that's for a very food reason. Whilst some home bars come with all the space you'd need for hosting big nights in, this home bar cart serves a very different purpose. It's a brilliantly stylish piece from John Lewis which offers an alternative to a traditional bar or cabinet, with a touch of simplicity and elegance, and just the right amount of space for your spirts of wine bottles with room on top for preparation and serving. And with its wheels wherever the party moves, your trusty bar cart can follow.

  • Size dimensions: Height: 74cm, Width: 73cm, Length: 37cm
  • Retailer: John Lewis

7. Rustic Outdoor Solid Wood Home Bar

Now this one is a little different to the rest, it's an outdoor home bar designed to be weather-resistant, made with solid wood that's been treated and with nano-based UV protection to make sure it's a purchase that lasts and lasts. This outdoor home bar is a fantastic option for those who enjoy hosting barbecues, garden parties, and summer drinks at home. It's entirely made in the UK with timber sourced from Alnwick Castle in Northumberland (yes that's right, the place that many castle scenes in Harry Potter were filmed - now isn't that a talking point!).

  • Size dimensions: Height: 106cm, Width: 154cm, Length: 63cm
  • Retailer: Liberty Games
  • Price: £££

8. Quench Quenchito Home Bar

Sleek is the name of the game with this stainless steel home bar. Perhaps not to everyone's taste - it's a far cry from some of the more rustic options - but we absolutely love it. The Quench Quenchito Home Bar has LED illumination and mirrored panels that will surely get your guests talking. Not only that but practically-speaking stainless steel is a dream to clean, and this home bar unit has tonnes of space underneath for glasses, bottles and even the odd ice bucket or two.

  • Size dimensions: Height: 106cm, Width: 56cm, Length: 120cm
  • Retailer: Liberty Games
  • Price: £££

If you’re looking for 'wow factor' then look no further. This home bar in the style of a truck front will transport you and your guests all the way to exotic Goa, India. It comes complete with two surfaces, a stylish bottle rack, and plenty of storage space in behind. This bar is enough to light up any party! It's made from metal as well as recycled wood.

Buying Guide

Before choosing your home bar furniture, whether it's a typical home bar unit, corner bar or bar cabinet, consider answering these three questions...

Who's your home bar for?

Me, myself and I

Choosing a home bar can feel like a real personal purchase. It can be your place to sit back, relax and be yourself, but it can equally be a place for entertaining how you want to entertain. If the only person who’ll be using your bar is you (or a select few friends and family members), you might not need all the drawers, cupboards or bar stools you might if you were entertaining. You can keep it simple with your favourite comfy chair and a stripped-back, stylish bar top. Don’t waste your money on stools that won’t get used, splash out on some great wall art or a state-of-the-art beer tap instead.

I was born to host

Ok we get it. You’re the host with the most. If you’re planning on inviting people over to get as much use out of your bar space as you can, you need to get thinking a lot more practically. First of all (and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work this one out), you just need a bigger bar. You don’t want to end up squeezing people onto a corner. You’ll also want a few bar stools or somewhere else for people to sit and get the cards out. And last but not least, storage: that’s cupboards, drawers, fridge space and more to make sure everyone’s happy!

What space are you working with?

The bar takes pride of place

Now we’re in business! If you’ve got the space, you can really let the bar do the talking. There’s nothing better than peering into a man cave with an absolute beauty of a bar kitted out with a wine rack and maybe even a glass hanger for your cocktail glasses. Why the hell not. Here’s where corner bars can come in real handy too just to make even more of the space you’ve got.

The bar is the icing on the cake

Some of the best bars out there are the stylish and simple ones. They get the job done and you don’t have to fork out a lot of money in the process. Home bars come in so many different sizes, and if you’ve only got a small space a large bar would only make it feel smaller and congested. You’ve got a few options: go mobile and choose a simple bar cart with wheels, get a single beer dispenser fitted to elevate your cave, or keep it stylish and sleek with a bar cabinet filled to the brim with your favourite tipples. To make the most of your space around the bar, check out these top tips for creating the perfect home bar setup and get those creative juices flowing. Your home bar, your call!

What’s your tipple?

A pint of old faithful

If a refreshing beer is what you like to end a week with you’ve got to be thinking one of two things: a beer dispenser for the home, or a beer fridge big enough to always have a cold one waiting for you. Beer dispensers range from your stand-alone draught beer taps that can fit on most bar surfaces to your integrated draught beer dispensers for the wall. If you’re new to the home bar game a stand-alone beer tap is a great place to start, get a feel for it and work out what you like!

The hard stuff, sipped slowly

If you’re a fan of the harder stuff, whether it’s a whiskey on the rocks or your go-to cocktail (done your way, of course), then a spirits cabinet or even a drinks trolley can be the way to go. A lot of your larger bars will come with space to keep your spirits and mixers of choice, but always make sure you get something with enough space to handle your impromptu cocktail making classes and after work drinks!


Now there you have it, a broad range of home and corner bar products all the way from your outspoken stylish and slightly unusual home bars, to your sleek and elegant bar cabinets and bar carts. There are really two home bars that stand out for us and that we'd wholeheartedly recommend:

  1. The Charcoal Grey Home Bar Unit for its fantastic combination of style and practicality. There really aren't many home bars out that that can boast draw space and an in-built wine rack.
  2. The Traditional Solid Wood Home Bar for its open call for a more traditional way of doing things. Handmade in the UK from select cuts of pine or oak, with stainless steel feel and hand roles.
