Garden Bar Ideas | Creating Space for Outdoor Entertaining

15th September 2023



Garden Bar Ideas | Are you looking for ways to get the most out of your property? Our homes are a sanctuary to relax and unwind; however, they can be so much more!

Create cherished memories to look back on for years to come with a garden bar. Perfect for those “just for one” drinks after a busy day or a big party to host large family events. Whatever the occasion is, you can raise a glass in your very own garden room. 



Creating a garden games room and bar is the pinnacle entertainment combination to create a night that you’ll never forget. Challenge friends to a game of pool, darts or table tennis and claim bragging rights. If you’re feeling retro, why not add an arcade machine and set a new high score for all to see. Whatever your game of choice is, a games room is a great garden bar idea to bring everyone together.

Welcome to the Garden Pub Inn! With a modern approach to a classic British pastime, you can bring the pub to your own garden. Kit it out with a large-screen TV and turn it into your very own garden sports bar, and get your favourite beers on tap. So, no more late-night taxi fees, instead, take a couple of merry steps and your home.

These customers have taken the garden bar to the next level with a hot tub too giving them a place to retreat to when some rest and relaxation is needed.

If you’re looking for a high-quality hot tub or spa, look no further than our friends at Hot Tub Hub, which is 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!

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!

Benefits of a Garden Bar

Detached from the house for noise control and privacy

A garden bar might be the perfect solution if you’re living in a busy household. Escape the sound of noisy televisions, washing machines, or even the kids, and nip out to the local at the bottom of your garden for some much-needed me time to unwind with a nice cocktail.


Adds value and more cost-effective than a home extension or alternative

Traditional home extensions like conservatories aren’t suitable spaces to entertain family and friends due to their impracticality. These costly extensions are one-dimensional and aren’t cost-effective. However, a garden bar is soo much more than a place to drink. It’s a space to entertain, play games, and make memories while adding value to your home. Find out how much value customers are adding to their homes with a garden room!


Fully insulated for year-round use

When we think of garden bars, our imagination takes us to those sunny summer months spent drinking cold, refreshing drinks; however, our garden bars aren’t just for summer. All our garden bars are designed with premium insulation throughout the walls, floor and roof to create a comfortable internal atmosphere all year round. Plus, a wall-mounted radiator is included in the price of all our buildings and we have a range of premium heating upgrades, like our underfloor heating!
