It’s undeniable that the bar is of utmost concern to many event guests, but it’s not just what’s served at its counter that matters anymore. No longer are bars being pushed into back corners of event spaces, but rather they are becoming strategic design focal points during cocktail hours and receptions.

The bar is the social epicenter of any event, and its look can set the tone for the rest of the evening. Frequenting the bar now has a whole new meaning. Drink-up on this trend of utilizing bars as design centerpieces in event spaces.

Here are our custom and trend-worthy inventory pieces that are ‘raising the bar’ and helping events shine:

Seagrass Infinity Bar
The Seagrass Infinity Bar is the perfect addition to any Lowcountry soirée. The neutral bar compliments multiple color schemes, and the grass texture provides another element to the reception space. The bar seamlessly extends up to 32′ and has hidden LED lights on its front panel showcase the piece itself, as well as provide a nice, gently lit area for guests.

Gold Versailles Bar
All that glitters is GOLD! In 2014, metallics were a huge movement, especially paired with romantic hues of blush and crème. And, this trend has no end in sight. Gold continues to be used as a complimentary accent, as pastels have a rebirth (again)! Our Gold Versailles Bar gives any space added opulence, and is a perfect addition to the grandeur of a location. Its gold-tiled front provides a beautiful, bold touch to an event, accenting the French influenced architecture of many of Charleston’s historic buildings.

Wine Barrel Bar
The perfect rustic bar for any occasion, our Wine Barrel Bar flatters a wide variety of settings and themes. Most often we see the piece incorporated in outdoor events, as the wood grain texture lends itself to the natural landscape of the Lowcountry. From a country-chic gathering to a vino-themed event, our Wine Barrel Bar is a great event pillar.

Whichever you choose, adding a custom bar to your event can anchor your space and give guests a great place to socialize.

As the primary social spot, the bar design should incorporate with your event decor, and EventHaus’ diverse options can help set the scene for your event. View all of our bars here or stop by the showroom, and we’ll show you around!

Then, belly up, sip and repeat.
