Today, the idea of the home bar is a divisive one, but 50 or so years ago the in-home pub was as common as a starburst clock. The home bar was where couples entertained, parents escaped their children to have adult conversation over pulls of scotch, and where generally questionable holiday parties got out of control. Over the years, the bar has been relegated to America’s basements. With a resurgence of the popularity of midcentury modern design, however, the home bar is stumbling its way to a comeback. Many still think that bars belong downtown, but when done tastefully, a bar can become an entertainment centerpiece in your home.
