A garden bar is an ideal place to sit and relax, especially during warmer weather. While you might have been wondering if you could create your own garden bar, the short answer is yes, you can! With a Loghouse log cabin, it’s much easier than you might think.

If you’re looking for a garden bar that is both stylish and practical, a Loghouse log cabin can help you create the home bar idea of your dreams. Made from high-quality materials and manufactured with great attention to detail, our log cabins are designed to last. And using a log cabin to set up your garden bar will create a unique focal point in your garden.

With plenty of space to store glasses, bottles and bar accessories, our log cabins make it easy to keep everything you need for your outdoor bar close at hand. And with various sizes and styles to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect log cabin man cave for your garden.

Can you build a bar in your garden?

While we’ve already established that you can build a garden bar, there are a few things to consider. A garden log cabin in your home will not usually require planning permission if it is below a certain size, and Loghouse log cabins are designed to reflect this. It is always worth checking with the local authority to ensure there are no restrictions in your area, but in 99% of cases, you can simply put up a cabin.

As log cabins are available in a range of sizes, you can choose the one that meets your needs. You might decide to have the cabin exclusively as bar space with a seating area in your garden. You could also have seating inside the cabin, and with Loghouse log cabins, you can have full kitchen facilities installed.

However, ensure that you don’t try to run this as a commercial enterprise. Having friends and family around for a drink at your log cabin bar is great, but you can’t run it like a real bar – if you charge money for any drinks, you’re likely to fall foul of licensing laws! While you can build a garden outdoor bar at your home, you can’t open it to the public.

What are garden bars called?

It’s easiest to call them garden bars, although terms such as home bar, shed bar, and pub shed are often used. It doesn’t matter if the bar is in your home, a shed, or a log cabin – the names are often used interchangeably.

A common practice is to give your garden bar a name in the style of a traditional pub. These names are often puns or twists on well-known pub names. The Red Lion could become The Shed Lion, while Coach & Horses could become Cabin & Gorses (assuming you have a gorse bush!).

The term “gin garden” is in common use, but many outdoor bar owners like to use their own name, such as “[NAME]’s Bar” – and if you get a nameplate made up to hang on your log cabin, the choice is entirely yours.

Whatever name you choose for your outdoor bar, make sure it reflects the style and atmosphere you’re trying to create. A garden bar is a great way to add extra fun to summer BBQs and parties, so make sure it’s a space you’re proud of and can enjoy yourself.

What do I need for a garden bar?

If you’re wondering what equipment and furnishings you’ll need for your outdoor bar, the list is actually quite short. Obviously, you’ll need a bar – and this is where a Loghouse log cabin comes in handy. Our log cabins can be connected to the electric and water supply, and you can install a bar quite easily.

You’ll also need bar stools or chairs, and depending on the size of your outdoor bar, you might want to include a sofa or some other type of seating. If you’re planning on having friends over to enjoy your garden bar, you’ll need enough seating for everyone.

As far as equipment goes, you’ll need glassware – glasses, tumblers, and mugs – and you might want to invest in a good cocktail set. A blender is also useful for making smoothies and other drinks. If you’re planning on serving food and drinks, you’ll need plates, bowls, and cutlery.

You can even have cooking facilities inside your cabin with a connection to the electricity supply. While it’s possible to cook in your home and simply bring out the food, how much better is it to have the full experience and be able to cook and serve in your outdoor bar?

That’s just about everything you need for your garden bar. Of course, you’ll want to decorate the bar, and installing flooring and decorating the walls is simple. With some imagination, you can turn your outdoor bar into the perfect space for summer fun.
