21 Great Home Bar Decorations & Accessories
Perfect as Christmas, birthday, and retirement gifts, each and every one of these creative home bar decorations will be a great conversation starter.
1. Personalized Whiskey Barrel
The best home bar accent is also something that you can use to improve the overall bar experience. That’s why an authentic oak aging barrel is #1 in our list of personalized home bar decorations.
Our oak barrels look great anywhere, plus you can fill them up and use them to age your own spirits. And lastly, of course, it is custom engraved with your name and more.
Available in multiple sizes and designs. Shop all styles here.
2. Pressurized Growler Keg
Growlers are all the rage, and for good reason. A good growler will allow you to take craft beer from the tap straight to your refrigerator for home consumption.
This device takes it to the next level. The vacuum insulated stainless steel keg holds 64 (or 128) ounces of craft brew and not only keeps it cold all day long, but keeps it tasting freshly carbonated for up to two weeks.
No more flat beer!
3. Personalized Glassware
Customize your own bar glassware to create a sophisticated atmosphere that is fully personalized!
Fine glassware, made in the USA, and personalized with any text, monogram or line art. If you have a business, etch your logo on there!
Find everything – from mason jars to Glencairn whiskey glasses to stemless or stemmed wine glasses and much more – at Northwest Gifts.
4. Custom Vintage Home Bar Sign

12. Wine Barrel Dartboard
Competitively throwing sharp pointy objects goes well with alcohol. So what could be a better accent for your home bar than a dartboard and score keeping set?
A professional dartboard is mounted to an oak barrel head, and you can keep score on the barrel staves which have been converted into chalkboards. Add a bit of fun and barrel flair to your decor!
The chalkboards provide plenty of additional opportunity for personalization. Not only can you use them to keep score, you can also use it for a wine or tap list, take odds on who is going to win the dart competition, list tonight’s menu, and more.
