Amazon's Under-the-Radar Hotel-Inspired Storefront Has So Many Home Bar Essentials
For the mixology-minded traveler, a lavish hotel bar is an important consideration when choosing where to stay in a new city. Although the pandemic has put many travel plans on hold, enjoying a hotel bar-quality cocktail at home is easier to achieve than you might think. Amazon's Just Add Room Service storefront is full of barware, accessories, furniture, wall art, and more to help you create your own hotel-style bar—and our favorite picks start at just $28.
Amazon's curated section includes plenty of essentials for cocktail and wine lovers alike: think decanters, insulated ice buckets and cocktail shakers, martini glasses, and entire mixology sets. A home bar also needs a sleek bar cart, comfy armchairs for you to sit and sip from, and maybe even well-designed lighting to set the mood. All of these items can be found in the Just Add Room service collection, and better yet, many of them are on sale.

Hotel bars typically mix functionality with style, so you'll want your home bar essentials to not only work well, but look good, too. This mixology bartender kit, for example, comes with everything you need to craft delicious cocktails and stands out from other sets with its sleek wooden stand. You might also consider BrüMate's triple-insulated cocktail shaker that's available in plenty of colors, or Paksh's decanter set that reviewers say has a "classy look at an excellent price point." Some other stylish finds include these marble coasters, this sleek insulated ice bucket, and Amazon's modern serving tray that could be used for more than just carrying drinks around.
It wouldn't be a home bar without a bar cart where you can organize and hold everything, and Amazon reviewers especially love RiteSune's Round Gold Rolling Bar Cart that one person called "stunning and functional" as well as this larger, art deco-style option. Once your drinks are made, you'll want to enjoy them from a cozy spot, and the wide seats on this Velvet Accent Chair and this Boulevard Café Lounge Chair are perfect for the job (plus, the latter is 22 percent off right now).
