If you think you need tons of space to throw a killer party, think again — all you need is a designated spot to keep your cocktail supplies, and no, that doesn't mean sacrificing what little counter space you have. You could get a bar cart, or you could mount your bar area to the wall. Yes, really!
Hanging Cocktail Bar, $110, UncommonGoods
This hanging cocktail bar from UncommonGoods solves all your space issues — it folds right up and acts as a floating shelf. Inside, the shelf has plenty of storage space with room for multiple bottles of liquor and wine. The top acts as another shelf, so you can store more supplies, glasses, recipe books, or whatever decorative items you'd like to have on display. And, perhaps the best part: When it's cocktail time, the door folds down to act as a prep space, so you can mix drinks right there. No tabletop necessary.
The floating bar is made from raw metal and paulownia wood (so it has a bit of an industrial, farmhouse-y flair) and measures 15.5 inches long by 8.5 inches wide and 17.5 inches high. It also comes with hanging hardware, so you don't have to worry about how to mount it — just install and stow away your booze of choice, then pour yourself a drink and toast to your new, tiny-space approved cocktail bar.
