Home Bar Needs & Professional Bar Supplies

Home bar needs and commercial bar needs are similar but the home bar requires less equipment and stock. For the home bar the basic needs are a bar tool set, ice bucket and glasses. The stemware and glasses you should have are a matter of personal preference. Some prefer a complete set of stemware glasses including assorted cocktail glasses, shot glasses, wine glasses and more while others will prefer a basic glass set. If you are doing formal entertaining you will need a complete set. An ice bucket is one of the basic items everyone should have. An insulated ice bucket will provide easy access to ice cubes for all entertaining and ice cubes will last longer in insulated bucket. Ice tongs or a large spoon are recommended for sanitary purposes. Some bar tool sets will include an ice bucket and tongs while other bar sets will not. Bar tools are used for measuring, stirring and mixing drinks as well as opening bottles.
