I don’t have space for a bar, but if I did, here are three styles I’d consider:

Drexel Heritage buffet:


Asking: $180 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 66″ wide, 19″ deep,  30.25″ high
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: It’s not a bar per se, but there are plenty of shelves and drawers to keep your barware. Keep the nicest pieces (and/or the best liquor) on top.

Check it out.

Marble-topped bar:

Asking: $400 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 24″ deep, 74″ long, 41″ high
Location: Logan Circle, DC
Thoughts: This one’s expensive, but it’s a big ol’ slab of marble, so I suppose that’s par for the course. Everything’s on display here, so you have to have decent stuff to show off, but the organization makes sense and looks good to me.

Check it out.

MCM desk bar:

Asking: $125 [No longer available]
Condition: One small piece broke off during a move, but otherwise in good condition.
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Catonsville, MD
Thoughts: Obviously this wasn’t built to be a bar, but the sellers suggested that it could repurposed that way, and I think they’re right. I appreciate the mix of open and closable display options. If you click through, you can see a close-up of the damage, but I’m unable to figure out where exactly it is on the piece as a whole. Based on the far-away shots, it seems like pretty great deal if the damage is that hard to spot.

Check it out.

Antique wood bar:


Asking: $100 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described, but it looks like there are a couple of scratches on top
Dimensions: Not provided
Location: Gainsville, VA
Thoughts: I like the wood grain on the doors, but as a whole I think it looks a little dated. I do think updating the hardware would help. And the price is pretty great.

Check it out.

Bar hutch:


Asking: $150 [No longer available]
Condition: Not described
Dimensions: 48″ wide, 61″ tall, 19″ deep
Location: Alexandria, VA
Thoughts: This one has some nice details, like the light in the main bar area and the felt-lined drawers. I’m not crazy about the way it looks when it’s all closed up though. (Don’t you think it kind of looks like a monkey face?)

Check it out.
