Let the idea sink in for a moment. A bar in the convenience of your own home. Does the life of a hard-working man who doesn’t have time, or permission, to go to the local pub get any better? If you’ve heard that the trend to implement home bars is coming back then your sources are wrong, because it’s a bloody movement. It’s only a matter of time before a political party called “The Home Bar” chooses a leader and run for presidency. Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s explore the benefits of getting your own piece of heaven.
Your Bar, Your Rules
That’s right baby. You are the king of the castle, the man with the goods and the ruler of wonderland. Nobody gets in or out without your permission. Your ass-kissing co-workers who just happen to show up at your favorite bar when all you wanted to do is relax with your buds won’t be a problem anymore. Mind you, this benefit alone is worth all the effort.
No More Designated Drivers
Now everyone can enjoy getting smashed without one poor soul sitting in the corner drinking flat coke, waiting to drive the taxi. Let’s face it; if you have pals over to enjoy your new bar then you won’t have a problem if they pass out on the couch. Many of them probably live only a few blocks away and they can walk home. If they live far away and the need for them to go home truly comes up then call the wife.
It’s a Natural Entertainment Centre
With a nice television and Hi-Fi the home bar can quickly resemble a living space no man has to leave. You’ll be surprised at how the bar will attract the people who come over. If you have a choice to take a seat at the dining room table or at a cozy little bar where nice music is droning in the background then what will you choose? You can even get a karaoke machine, but the neighbors probably won’t appreciate a drunk rendition of “We are the Champions” at 2 in the morning.
It’s a Sanctuary
Getting home after a hard day, opening a beer and sitting in front of a television switched to “Desperate Housewives” isn’t exactly a dream come true. With a home bar you can walk in, tap the custom made “Kiss My Ass Lounge” sign hanging on the wall while picturing your boss, throw yourself a scotch and switch the television to a good boxing match.
In reality there is no reason not to get a home bar. Nobody can chase you out and if you feel like sulking then it will always be there to support you. If nothing else it just looks good. Just be aware of the temptation to go out and by expensive toys to compliment your bar. The drinks might be a lot cheaper, but the money you save might not cover that special blender you ordered from some Russian company that promises to make any cocktail look like a manly drink.
