Stay organized with well-designed outdoor bar furniture that offers clever storage solutions so you can relax and enjoy the party. Browse our outdoor bar furniture options to get inspired. Not sure how to choose what’s best for your outdoor space? Here are some ideas:

One-Piece Wonders

Love the look of a built-in outdoor bar but can’t wait to start? Our Toscana A-Grade Teak Outdoor Bar instantly transforms your patio or deck. Beautifully designed in resilient teak with brass fittings, this compact showpiece features interior storage for bottles and glasses and easily folds away when the party ends.

Every outdoor bar needs our essential Teak Bar Cart. This durable multi-tasker includes bottle storage, a chopping board, and two removable serving trays. Constructed in solid teak and wheels easily from an outdoor kitchen to poolside. For small spaces, all you need is a portable bar cart and a table for two. Our stylish Pietro and Teak Bar Set contrasts classic teak with modern wicker bar chairs in black.

Choose Bar and Counter Height Tables & Seating

You may think the terms Counter Height and Bar Height mean the same thing but make no mistake; a few inches make a big difference when shopping for surfaces and seating that works together. Remember: when you order drinks at a bar, that surface is higher than the counters in your kitchen. Mixing materials from rope to raw concrete is a great idea; just be sure to check the listed height measurements. Our experts are happy to help you make it work.

Establish a sophisticated gathering place with our Donald Outdoor Reclaimed Teak Counter Height Bar Table. A striking modern showpiece in beautifully weathered gray, it attracts a crowd and accommodates up to ten people for cocktails. To maximize space, position your main table somewhere accessible from all sides, and choose armless seating like our Jack Outdoor Reclaimed Teak and Wicker Counter Height Bar Chair.

Invite intimate conversations with our sleek, distinguished Noble Outdoor Bar Table. Height is not the only factor when choosing bar-height seating. Scatter a few lightweight Nairobi Bar Stools in airy wicker on a powder-coated steel frame, and let guests choose whether to sit or stand. Or line your bar table with Loop Swivel Bar Stools. Swiveling means guests don’t need to pull stools away from the bar to sit down.

Shade and Shelter

Fireworks don’t start until dark, but Fourth of July celebrations get underway while the sun is out, so choose a shady spot for your outdoor bar. Take advantage of existing structures like overhangs, arbors, and gazebos, or designate a cool, leafy corner under the trees.

Maintain shade as the sun moves with large umbrellas that bring resort vibes to your outdoor space. Our Antigua Round Cantilever Umbrella rotates a full 360 degrees. It remains stable on the Antigua Granite Cantilever Umbrella Base with rubber wheels. The umbrella is customizable in Neptune™ colors to coordinate with your outdoor upholstery.

Add Finishing Touches

Keep your patio bar party Instagram-ready with our Teak Trash Container. Don’t let a bag of bottles to recycle ruin anyone’s shot! Details like this thoughtfully designed outdoor receptacle give your solace a finished look and make your guests feel welcome. Finally, cast a flattering glow. Hang a row of Barnes Outdoor Candle Teak Box Holders to illuminate your outdoor oasis.
