It's party time!
Give your party a glamorous look with a gold touch, perfect for any occasion. Take out your big ice cooler and buy more than enough ice. Remember that you are not just using it for drinks but also for chilling bottles of Champagne, white wine. A well organised bar cabinet is perfect all year round. Coaters will prevent marks on your table or precious table linen.
Stock your bar. Wine, beer, liquors that can be made into a variety of cocktails. Don't forget the mixers: juices, soda, tonic.... Dark colours, mahogany wood, leather to create the look of an English bar. Perfect for a corner in your living room or is it the masculin look which you want to give to your home office/library? A bar cart stays a great solution to move the bottles and the glasses to the most convenient place for the evening.
Maybe it will be the occasion to invest in a beautiful bespoke bar. The Martell Trunk is an exemple of the perfect combination of savoir faire: the House of Martell, one of the oldest of cognac distilleries, paired up with Pinel & Pinel, a Parisian contemporary trunk/luggage company, to create a unique Cognac Trunk. A masterpiece made out of the most luxurious materials.
The Martell Trunk is crafted for the true connoisseur. Make a checklist of the bottles you want to store, the glasses you need. And think of having a build in fridge to keep some small bottles of water or juices cool.
Have a variety of glasses on hand; you should offer wine in wine glasses, simple glasses for water or juices, tumblers for spirits, martini glasses, and cocktail glasses depending the type of cocktail you are serving. Be ready to have enough glasses, approximately twice as many glasses as you'll have guests. You don't want to be washing glasses in the kitchen when your guests are having fun.
Be creative by using an small desk or library and turn it in your own bar cart for the event. Add a big painting or picture to give it a bold look.
Don't forget the small details: cocktail stirrers, bottle opener. Have them all ready next to the glasses and bottles, and you will be the perfect host.
Think out of the box. The classical suitcase turntables are back: easy to take around, easy to use. Visit some friends and you will have a party wherever you go. A unique Bar Cabinet, a luxury handcrafted piece of art for the living room, office, bars, hotels, you name it. Up-cycled from a Original World War 2 fuel can, better known as a Jerry Can. It holds three 70cl bottles of liqueur and up to 12 glasses.
Now that you are prepared: let the friends come over.
