While you can't knock the appeal of a fun night out, there's something extra special about being able to entertain at home. So pour yourself a cold one and make room for a new happy hour essential: let's check out some of the coolest bar accessories on the Marketplace!
Splurge: Art Deco Bar Display
You know the easiest way to make an everyday get together feel like a special occasion? Investing in something truly one-of-a-kind. While this Art Deco beauty isn't essential for entertaining, even "cheap" glassware or drinks would instantly look more impressive when placed on it. If a true splurge is marked by something that you don't need (but really want), treat yourself to a little 1930's aesthetic upgrade.

When you combine luxe glam, convenience, and a heavy dose of industrial-style whimsy, you end up with this rolling minibar. The $230 price tag goes beyond the rolling trolley itself; you get an ice bucket, tongs, decanter, shot glasses, highball glasses, and side shelving that can pop up to give you more prep space. Plus, the wheels mean you're not tied down to just one drink-making area. Take the party with you where ever you go!
Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $230.
Have you ever seen anything like this?! What appears to be a corner bookcase swivels to reveal a mini mirrored dry bar hidden inside. The "steal" comes from the fact that you're essentially getting two pieces of furniture in one: no longer must the bartending bibliophile have to choose between their two loves for spacial reasons. How good does kicking back with a good book and casually grabbing yourself a drink sound? No formal party necessary.
