Turn up the music and stock the home bar high! We’re only a few restrictions away from dancing in the kitchen with our favourite people – and until then its garden parties as you’ve never seen them before.

If lockdown has taught us anything it’s that the people we love most are what really matters. It has been a long hard winter without our friends and family around us but as summer begins, we’re feeling energised, hopeful and in the mood for drinks, dancing and having fun. 

I can’t speak for your friends, but when it comes to mine some sassy cocktails, a few ice cold beers and a nice glass of fizz or three will all be front and centre of this reunited action!  Will they be impressed? We think so!

Which is why here at Asha Living we’ve been busy working on a new line of fabulously quirky home bars. These truly unique pieces are all designed by us and hand-made by our master craftsmen in India using recycled tyres and reclaimed metal.  View the whole range in our Home Bars department.

Why Choose An Asha Living Home Bar

  • VERSATILITY: Perfect for the corner of a large kitchen or informal dining room, inside a garden gazebo or under a pergola, and ideal in a converted garage or shed.  The BMW Bike Console Bar is a great example! 

  • SIZE: From the dinky Vespa Bar Shelf and Tuk Tuk Counter Bar, to the statement Vector Bike Home Bar, we have home bars in all shapes and sizes.

  • STYLE: These quirky bars are designed to fit all living spaces, painted in a range of neutral colours including silver, black and bronze. Although we must admit, the bright red racecar bar is a favourite too!

  • STORAGE: Space to hang glasses, store bottles, counters for bowls of fruit and buckets of ice. We’ve thought of everything to host the perfect party – and free up cupboard space in the kitchen! Check out the Triumph Bike Bar which has it all.

Top Tips For A Well Stocked Bar

We caught up with our fellow Perth Indie retailer, Diane Brown from Provender Brown in George Street, to ask her for some top tips for a well-stocked bar.  Provender Brown is the home of gin and craft spirits and beers in Perth city centre, and Diane has mixed many a drink in her time.

Here’s what she said,

“When stocking your home bar, try to think about your own crowd of friends.  I am a lover of gins and easily have a dozen open at any one time. We also love a glass of Prosecco and a cheeky cocktail or two but others will be more inclined to have a good choice of whisky or rum.

“Remember too to think about your mixers.  Go for something a little different to the standard Schweppes and really impress your friends! Finally, invest a few pounds in some classy glasses and essential bar tools to help you mix the perfect drink.  Now send out the invites and prepare to shake!”   

Try this as a good basic starting point.

6 Best Spirits for a Home bar

  • Good quality Vodka
  • Two or three choices of Gin
  • Tequilas for Margaritas
  • Two different rums or Bacardi
  • Whisky – a couple of single malts and a blend for cocktails
  • A good basic Brandy

Liqueurs to Have In a Home Bar

  • Amaretto - An almond-flavored liqueur that is used in both fancy and casual cocktails.
  • A Coffee Liqueur - White Russians rely on Kahlua.
  • Dry and Sweet Vermouth – James Bond fans love a Martini
  • Irish Cream Liqueur – who doesn’t love a Baileys?
  • An Orange Liqueur – Go triple sec, Cointreau, or Grand Marnier
  • Chambord - The iconic raspberry liqueur used in lots of cocktails
  • Drambuie – The ultimate companion to your whisky offering

Mixers For Your Pub At Home

When choosing mixers try to go for something different. There are loads of options now and you can buy small bottles or cans in individual servings that work for one or two drinks so you're not mixing with flat juice!

  • Tonic Water
  • Ginger Ale
  • Cola and Diet Cola
  • Lemon-Lime Soda
  • Club Soda
  • Orange Juice 
  • Cranberry Juice 
  • Tomato Juice 
  • Bitters 
  • Grenadine 

Finally, to create a really great drink you’ll want plenty of ice! We’ve made sure each of our home bars comes with a good-sized counter to hold a chunky ice bucket and all of the essential tools of the trade.
