Garden Bar Ideas | Creating Space for Entertaining

2nd December 2021

Oh the weather outside is frightful,

but the garden room is so delightful…



The most wonderful time of year is upon us and what better place to gather with your nearest and dearest this winter than a gorgeous garden bar!

As the ultimate entertainment space, a garden room can provide that extra square footage we all crave when the festive season rolls around. With festive gatherings aplenty on the calendar, and lots of lost time to make up for, our homes can quickly start to feel cramped and cluttered with all the extra decorations, presents and fridge stocked full!

A garden bar is an ideal space to retreat to and host all your festive fun. Be inspired by some of our favourite customer garden bar ideas made for entertaining and you could be the hostess with the mostess in your very own customised entertainment space come Christmas 2022!



Garden Bar Ideas For Entertaining

Our Favourite Customer Builds


Large Garden Bar

Go all out with a large garden bar that’ll give you all the glitz and glamour of a night on the town without the queues, entry fee or long ride home! Choosing one of our larger configurations (our buildings range from 4 sqm to 40 sqm internally) gives you all the space for those entertainment extras like a vintage arcade game, big screen TV or even a karaoke machine that’ll get everyone in the party mood.



Small Garden Bar

Love the idea of a garden bar but need a garden building for a multitude of purposes? You don’t have to abandon the garden bar dream altogether! If a garden office is a more pressing space need currently then why not create a clocking off corner with a mini-fridge or trendy bar cart that’ll create a post 5pm use for your garden room.

Did you know…?

Our buildings are designed with a 30-year life so your garden room can continually be reconfigured inside to meet your current life needs and wants!



Garden Bar and Games Room

Who doesn’t love to crack out the board games as the dark nights roll in! Creating a garden games room and bar is perfect for housing a snooker or table tennis table that is too large for many traditional spaces in the house. Plus, it’s the ultimate space to retreat to for those festive after-dinner games when the big day rolls around instead of all squeezing everyone around the festive chaos already created.

Garden Bar with Hot Tub

There’s no doubt that Christmas can cause chaos to our regular routine with all the extra social events and rushing around the shops! A garden bar with hot tub gives you a place to retreat to away from the festive chaos to reset and recharge.

If you’re looking for a high-quality hot tub or spa, look no further than our friends Hot Tub Hub, who are located within our Buckinghamshire showroom. Purchase a hot tub with them and it can be installed at the same time as your Green Retreats garden room minimising disruption for you!

Are garden bars warm enough to use in winter?

There’s no need to worry about feeling the chill in winter in our garden buildings! All are designed with premium insulation throughout the walls, floor and roof to create a comfortable internal atmosphere all year round. Plus, an oil-filled radiator is included in the price of all our buildings and we have a range of premium heating upgrades, like our underfloor heating and wall mounted radiators!



Whatever your style our garden buildings come as a blank canvas for you to put your stamp on so you can create that sophisticated gin soiree vibe, garden pub or pretty prosecco palace! To give you a kickstart we include all the essentials like internal and external lighting, flooring and heating – the rest is up to you to get creative and bring your garden bar ideas to life!

Our garden rooms are priced based on the internal sizes rather than the exterior footprint, making it easier for you to plan your work space. A commercial unit from Green Retreats could end up saving you a fortune from the costs of renting a workspace alone. The price includes base, installation and VAT so there are no (nasty) surprises when it comes to final payment.
