Choosing a portable outdoor bar is an easy and affordable way to relax outside without the need to build a permeant feature or for homes with smaller patios, decks, or balconies.
The best portable outdoor bar designs include all the features of their larger cousins but with a more compact footprint. Look for bars with drawers and adjustable shelving, or one with an enclosed cabinet to keep your supplies from collecting dust and leaves. One with a locking cabinet is a great way to keep curious children away from any alcoholic beverages, glass containers, or sharp objects. A drain sink and ice compartment are always convenient bar design features.
Choose an outdoor bar made from weather friendly material such as sturdy plastic, aluminum, or stainless steel. Wooden bars are fine if treated with water resistant and sun safe finishes. Stone or ceramic could also be used, but keep in mind the weight factor when deciding just how portable you want your outdoor bar to be.
And remember, a portable outdoor bar can also be enjoyed inside on those rainy days!
