How to Create the Ultimate Whisky Bar

With the party season fast approaching, here are some suggestions to help you create the ultimate whisky bar for your bachelor pad and home!

Find a Stylish Bar Cart

First and foremost, you’ll need a stylish way to store your bar essentials and show off your kiss ass bottle of Scotch! I really like the Maddox Bar Cart from Arteriors because it’s practical and sleek looking. With two clear shelves, you can store opened bottles in the four small cubicles and add anywhere between 10-30 bottles on the two shelves. In addition, the wheels make it really easy to use from room to room.


A Bar Table

The second most important item is a display table such as the Iro Table from Arteriors. This table is industrial chic at its best. The antique brass frame and honed black marble top make this piece simultaneously modern and classic. It’s the perfect table to stack all your showcase bottles of scotch and whisky. It can be placed anywhere from the dining room to the kitchen.


Dark Bronze Light Pendant

In order to make your bar extra enticing, add a Mario Pendant Light from Arteriors. The iron pendant with a dark bronze finish will shine light on your cocktail making skills. Be sure to hang this light right above your bar cart for the ultimate effect. 


Glass Blown Lights

In case you want glass pendants that are a bit lighter, try the Organic Blown Glass Pendant by West Elm. Not to mention, they’re having a massive sale and you can get 25% off with using the code ‘moreismore’. These light pendants are ultra chic and unique, just make sure to hang them above your bar!


Crystal Glassware

Now comes the fun part, glassware! I suggest the Estate Barware Collection from William-Sonoma. This glassware set has sleek lines, clear lead-free crystal, well-balanced weight and is ideal for any sort of entertaining from casual cocktails to everyday enjoyment. Not to mention, they’re also 20% off so get them while supplies last!


Bar Tool Set

Whether you want your cocktails shaken or stirred, the Bartender’s Dark Wood Bar Tool Set from William-Sonoma  is the perfect way to say “Cheers!” The set includes all the essential tools for measuring, mixing, straining and serving drinks in style.

  • Set includes cocktail shaker, double-sided measuring jigger, cocktail strainer, ice tongs and stirring spoon.
  • Double-sided jigger for .5 and 1-oz. measuring.
  • Constructed of gleaming stainless steel with polished walnut-stained beechwood accents and handles.


Leather Ice Bucket

Now to complete your bar, add a Leather Ice Bucket from William- Sonoma. The rich, supple leather paired with steel accents gives this ice bucket a classic club-style sophistication that’s perfect when you’re serving cocktails. The bucket includes: a stainless-steel bucket wrapped in leather, hand stained to a rich tobacco hue and a stainless-steel knob on lid.



Now that your whisky bar is complete, make sure to invite all your friends to check out how great it looks (and for your speciality drinks of course!).
