Apart from its functional attributes, a bar also adds character and dimension to a patio area. The following pointers will help you when setting up your own backyard area.


You will definitely take into consideration the size of bar you require and the amount of people it is to cater for before setting up. If your space is too big you could simply opt for a bar cart which is mobile.
