How to Build an Epic Basement Bar

Creating a basement bar is a dream that is within your grasp. While this may sound like a huge undertaking, it’s a project that’s often easier than expected—with a payoff that’s beyond fantastic.

A basement is an ideal location for a bar. Space here is usually more plentiful than in the upper living areas. Plus, since basements are located under existing kitchens and bathrooms, you’ll find ready access to electrical wiring and plumbing.

What’s more, your basement bar project is entirely flexible. If building a full-scale wet bar feels daunting, start with a dry bar with no plumbing connections. If you find that you love it, you can revisit it later and add a sink and other features of a wet bar.
