There are evenings when the thought of heading out for a round of drinks seems more like a task than revelry, and a night in would be much preferred. But more often than not, the idea of the modern home bar conjures images of frigid glassware and sleek marble tabletops, and don’t offer much more by way of a good time. Instead, switch out cold elements for colors that are unafraid to make bold statements: bright champagne glasses paired with lacquered trays, showy candles, and evening entertainment in the form of unconventional card games. Finally, take things down a notch with bar tools that are a touch more pragmatic.
