The home bar has become something of a must-have for those who take their entertaining seriously and for a place to mix cocktails that’s truly worth its salt (rimmed margaritas) bespoke design is the ideal solution. At Mowlem & Co we are often asked to extend our expertise to creating an area dedicated to the service of drinks, be that a complete bar area, the most stylish of built-in cocktail cabinets, or a dedicated zone within the kitchen.

Our award-nominated Legend kitchen features a built-in cocktail cabinet and a special pantry for making after dinner tea and coffee (and breakfast the morning after!) Custom-stained, it features antiqued brass trim and a mirrored splashback.

Depending on space and location, a home bar might be something that harmonises with your new kitchen design, or that works well as a stand-alone feature in an open-plan living area. Either way, unique and beautiful furniture and finishes are something both our designers and craftspeople enjoy getting to grips with.

From sophisticated details such as mirrored splashbacks and brass trim, to the full-on glamour of a backlit bar top made from semiprecious carnelian mineral, to the subtlety of a cabinet integrated to the wall the aesthetics can be whatever your heart desires. But the practical elements matter too, from extra sinks that can also serve as ice buckets, to ample and specialised beverage refrigeration – not forgetting the end of the evening tea and coffee making – plus, of course, display storage for all that elegant glassware. It’s up to us to think of everything… and we do!

A backlit bar-top made from semiprecious stone? We would be happy to oblige. While adding, of course, every detail that makes the perfect home bar. All that remains is for corks to pop and martinis to be shaken (or stirred.)

Whether an integrated cabinet, a dedicated zone of the kitchen or an island unit so glam it begs for guests, we can craft it.

So, if you (or a discerning client) have a vision to achieve (and parties to be thrown) talk to us about how we can help that dream come to beautiful and practical life. Cheers!
