Creating The Perfect Whiskey And Cigar Bar For Events
Wow your guests with this fun & simple whiskey & cigar bar for any holiday, event, or wedding
Everyone remembers a detail of their wedding reception that was their absolute favorite & Adam’s is hands down the whiskey & cigar bar!
Not only did this little bar save us big bucks from having to buy multiple types of liquor & mixers but it also gave the whole wedding a very swanky vibe.
So I thought I would show you how to set one up for your next party or event!
Choose A Foundation
This is what your barn will sit on!
You can get as creative as you want or just use a simple table.
Some cool options are:
- Large Wire Spools (that’s what we used)
- Use Stacked Antique Luggage boxes
- Use a Large Mirror With Twinkly Light (romantic vibes, swoon)
- Wooden Plant Stand
- Wooden Ladder With 1×10 Boards Placed in Inbetween Slats
Add Greenery or Decor
Wrap greenery, lights, flowers to your stand for a little extra oomph.
We used this greenery that we also incorporated on our table centerpieces.
When it got to be dusk we turned on twinkly lights that we wrapped around the spools so guests could still see what they were pouring!
To add a little extra ambiance we also placed
Mix & Match Decanter/Glasses
One of my favorite parts of the whiskey bar was the eclectic-ness (sure it’s a word) of the decanters & glasses!
We found different decanters at TJ Maxx, Amazon, & some from our own collection.
The glass shot glasses each had a unique design & added extra character to the whole scene!
I mean what kind of whiskey bar would it be with the actual whiskey!
Choose a variety of whiskies that will suit a range of guests.
Here are some that will provide a good variety for all your guests.
- Screwball Whiskey (my personal favorite)
- Wild Turkey Longbranch
- GentleMan Jack
- Makers Mark
- Woodfor Reserve
Chose something fun, colorful, & also delicious for your garnish.
You can have multiple or stick to one, we chose oranges!
Other options are:
Cigars paired well with our whiskey bar!
It was such a fun addition & something extra that normal event & party bars don’t usually have.
You can display them on antique trays or in wooden boxes for a little decor extra.
Plus cigar cutters & lighters can make great favors!
