Shed bar ideas

With the evening's getting longer and the weather warming up, there has never been a better time to bring the bar into your own back garden.

Separated from the rest of the house, and still sheltered from the unpredictable British weather, your shed could be the new neighbourhood hotspot.

Come rain or shine, you’ll be able to enjoy cocktail nights, beers with your pals and endless BBQs all summer long.

Whether you've got a shed that's well overdue a makeover, or some extra space in your garden you'd like to dedicate to some day or evening drinking, we've got endless ideas for you.

Garden shed makeover ideas

Got a garden shed that’s well overdue a makeover? Bring some new life into your outdoor space by transforming your shed into a well-equipped bar.

With just a weekend's work of DIY and some love, your shed could be the envy of all your friends and neighbours.

So, start working and stocking those shelves because the warm weather is on the way and she doesn’t wait for anyone, that’s for sure.

How to make your own outdoor shed bar

Start from scratch and build a stand-alone garden bar, pre-built or a bit of weekend DIY and you’re ready to start mixing those cocktails.

With an outdoor bar, you can go wall-mounted or stand-alone, these are great options if you’re working with less space or don’t want to set up a whole shed in your garden.

Without going too much into the possibilities of your new garden bar, we've found some inspiration to get you started. On top of that, we've also scoured the internet to get you the best deals on all the bar you'll need, to turn your shed or outdoor area into the perfect boozy backyard getaway.
