Outdoor Garden Bar Ideas for Entertaining


Garden Bar Ideas | With the weather warming up all eyes turn to the garden with the hopes of a sunny season of outdoor entertaining ahead. Adding a garden bar to your home is a great way to expand your living space, plus make sure you always get a seat in the pub garden!

Whatever your style there are lots of garden bar ideas to carve out a sociable space right outside your homes back door! Mojito anyone? 🍸



About Garden Bars

Having a garden room installed is the perfect way to add a garden bar to extend the footprint of your home.


Benefits of a Garden Bar
  • Fully insulated for year-round use
  • Detached from the house for noise control and privacy
  • Adds value and more cost-effective than a home extension or alternative


Large Garden Bar

Go all out with large garden bar ideas 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 30 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 Favourite Customer Builds


Garden Bar and Games Room

Creating a garden games room and bar is perfect for housing a snooker or table tennis table that is too large for many rooms in the house. Add some DJ decks and you’ve got the coolest party pad in town only a short stroll from your house. Plus, it’s the ultimate space to retreat to when the typical british summer weather lets us down.

Garden Room Pub

Make your home the go to spot of the summer by creating the ultimate garden pub garden room where you can become your very own pub landlord. Add a large TV to stream all the summer’s sporting events and you’ll have all your friends and family queuing to get a seat.



Garden Bar with Hot Tub

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 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!
