Raise your hand if you love entertaining? Do you hate dealing with going to a loud bar where you can’t hear anyone around you, and you enjoy going to bed at 11 pm instead of 2 am? While there’s nothing wrong with going out and enjoying yourself, sometimes you want to relax at home with a few friends over watching a movie, the game, or have a dinner catching up. A dry bar gives you the freedom to provide that entertainment without everyone piling into the kitchen. Here’s what you need to know about these fantastic at-home bars!

Wet bar vs. dry bar?

Wet and dry bars are used synonymously. They are very similar features, but the most significant difference is that a wet bar has a sink with running water. A dry bar is where you can store alcohol, mixers, soda, and other drinks. Usually, people opt for a dry bar because the installation is less expensive than figuring out how to run a water line wherever you want the sink to be.

Are there benefits to a dry bar?

The main benefit is that you can entertain whenever you like. It’s a safe, relaxing area where friends and family can hang out, enjoying each other’s company. You don’t have to worry about fitting everyone in a restaurant or at a bar. It will also increase the value of your home since it’s a unique feature.

Where would dry bars be in the house?

Usually, you see dry bars assembled in a finished basement, man caves, game room, etc. If you don’t have a separate area like that, dry bars can also be attached to the kitchen, which is extremely convenient because the sink will be much closer. It can go anywhere in your home. With how large they tend to be, dry bars usually become the focal point of the room. You can even have it outdoors as part of your outdoor kitchen!
