So You'd Like to Set Up A Basement Bar?
When setting up a basement bar there are some must have items you must have around. Either you have these necessities, or your basement bar won’t really be a bar but just a basement pretending to be. Of course, there are some extras, like a jukebox and pool table that will really set the bar off. However, consider the following 5 must haves in order to set up your very own basement bar to enjoy a night with your friends. Picture the epic parties, game days, and social events. Then, add the extras when you can afford to.
Must Have #1
This might seem obvious, but to have the best basement bar ever,you really need a traditional basement. There are many benefits to this. Here are a basic few from the list. The bar should be on a completely different level than the rest of the house so noise won’t be transmitted and bother those above you. Of course, you can make a basement bar in whatever space you call the basement, but a true basement bar needs a basement.
Must Have #2
Ok, obvious requirement number two is a bar. A basement bar needs a bar that is set up to serve beer and give the appearance that your basement bar is really authentic. You can buy a ready made bar, hire a carpenter to build you one, or give it a go yourself. To DIY a bar the correct way, ensure that you buy the correct lumber, and for reference, don't hesitate to download step by step instructions from the internet. As long as you have a basement and a bar, your basement bar just needs some accessories.
Must Have #3
A kegeraotr is a refrigerated keg. I know. Amazing. Is job is to keep your beer cold at all times. This guarantees that you will be ready to serve anytime the basement bar is open. You don’t want to have to buy six packs, and litter your bar with bottled beer, when you can serve beer straight from the keg. Keg beer is special and will make your basement bar even more so.
Must Have #4
A BIG TV
No, you don’t have to have the biggest screen television on the market, but it will help. Buy the largest screen television you can afford for your basement bar, or one that fits the space well if your basement is really small. This will allow for great game watching like the Superbowl, Basketball National Championship, and other great games. Let the good times roll!!
Must Have #5
This might seem generic, but it really is a must have for your basement bar. If your friends are joining you for a night of poker, or Monday night Football ,they need a place to sit back and relax, while drinking some of your keg beer. So, be sure to have some bar stools around the bar. Also, it can't hurt to invest in comfy couches and chairs surrounding the TV. Don't forget to keep your poker table nearby. This will enable you to ensure that there is plenty of seating wherever the action is taking place.
These 5 must have items are an excellent starting point to creating the basement bar of your dreams. Cheers!
