Inspector on the way - oops

Inspector is coming today...checking my remodel....Just read something on another thread which has me a bit nervous.... I've put in one receptacle above a new "wet bar" in the basement. Does it need to be on a dedicated (single solitary) circuit? I was planning on a GFCI plug.... but hadn't run a separate circuit to it.... I've got a new bathroom on the other side of the new wall.... but don't believe I can hook the wet bar plug into the bathroom GFCI 20amp dedicated line ....

Hope to get some prompt help here..... case I need to run a new wire real quick...

No, the wet bar does not require a dedicated circuit.
It does require GFI protection, be it a breaker or receptacle.

Do not hook the receptacle into the bathroom circuit. This would be a code violation.
