The Home Bar - Stay In; Still Go Out The Home Bar - Stay In; Still Go Out

Having a home bar means you can bring the fun of a Saturday night to the comfort of your own home at a fraction of the cost.

Let’s face it. Going out for dinner and drinks today is not only an expensive proposition, but now more than ever, requires some serious thought about how it affects your household budget. Hitting the local pub for dinner and drinks with some friends has often been forsaken in an effort to save money in these trying times.

But your home bar can be an oasis during this troubling time by not only providing some entertainment, but keeping the cost of this entertainment down considerably. For example, the purchase of a simple karaoke machine can turn your rec room into a karaoke bar. There are several competitively priced models available for the discerning homeowner to choose from. Forget going to the karaoke bar and paying for drinks in food to have a good time when you can have the same fun in your home bar.

The next time the big game is on and your friends suggest going to the local sports bar to watch it, you can offer an alternative. Your home bar can act as the local sport pub provided you keep it stocked with the sports bar essentials. You need to have plenty of beer, ice, and snacks to keep your guests happy during the game.  Comfortable seating can’t hurt either as your guests will appreciate a nice spot to take a breather.

Your home bar can be a great place to gather with friends and play some fun bar games. A small pool table or dart board is a great source of fun for both you and your guests. Either of these items can be purchased at a reasonable cost from you local sporting goods store. No matter which one you choose, they will provide hours upon hours of fun.

Staying home over going out has certainly grown in popularity over the last few years as people have become more cost conscious about how they spend their money. Spending a night with friends at your home bar can be a welcome escape from it all. Best of all, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
