A simple bar area is functional for any kitchen or open living space. Cabinets add storage, while extra counter space is perfect for mixing drinks while entertaining. It can also serve as a breakfast or brunch bar for morning gatherings.
This open-concept kitchen has it all: stainless appliances, a charming range hood, an eat-in island and a custom coffee bar. Recessed lights and gold pendants keep the space bright from morning to night.
A butler’s pantry was typically placed in a hallway between the kitchen and dining room and were used to store china but now they more frequently used as a wet bar. A sink, wine cooler and bar for liquors and this bar is ready for the homeowners and guests, whether it’s to perk up in the morning or mix a happy-hour cocktail.
This is not your average bathroom: The makeup vanity features drawers wired with outlets so that appliances like blow dryers can be easily plugged in. And to make getting ready in the morning even more pleasant, there's also a coffee bar!
Once a closed space, this kitchen was remodeled to create a more open and unified space with modern design. A stylish breakfast bar with barstools provides a spot for having a quick morning meal with coffee before the day starts.
Before, a partial wall isolated the island from the rest of the kitchen. Now, the homeowners can easily interact while they enjoy a bowl of cereal or the morning news at the updated breakfast bar, as seen on HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother.
Repurpose a bar or garden cart into a rolling breakfast station complete with gourmet coffees and a variety of newspapers. It's the perfect time of year to loll away the morning over the paper, sipping hot java and noshing freshly baked pastries.
This master bedroom is truly decadent: In the middle of the countertop between the two sinks is a coffee bar, perfect to jump start early mornings. Another area was planned to fit a massage table and a privacy screen.
Several seating options throughout this cozy kitchen make it a comfortable space for mingling or just grabbing a quick bowl of cereal in the mornings. Two green and white patterned chairs and a plush green banquette seat line a small table, while taupe suede stools are positioned along a neutral granite breakfast bar.
If you want a scene-y, vibrant, stylish stay for your Alpharetta visit, you couldn't do better than The Hotel at Avalon, a hip Autograph Collection spot with a buzzy bar and lobby scene and a destination-worthy in-house restaurant, Atlanta favorite South City Kitchen, a great way to sample smart regional cuisine if you are feeling too lazy to head beyond the hotel's oasis-like ambiance (which could happen).
