1. Cold Beer Neon Light Sign
It might be stating the obvious but let all your guests know that cold draught beer is served at your bar with this authentic neon light sign. The signs come in a variety of different neon colours ensuring that there is an option to suit the decor of your own home bar. The best thing is they don’t use any noxious gas so no maintenance is required and the LED bulbs have a good 5-10 year lifespan depending on how much your bar is open.
2. The Sub Compact Beer Dispenser
Well, if you’ve got a sign that says ‘cold beer’ you better be able to serve it! The Sub compact is a home draught beer tap which utilises mini-kegs called ‘torps’ which you put into the loading bay, connect a tube and then you are ready to pour a glass of authentic draught beer. There is a great mix of beers available with it from premium lager’s such as Heineken to IPA’s like Lagunitas. The Sub is one of our favourite beer dispensers as it’s such great value for money but there are many other beer dispensers on the market to suit all budgets which you can discover here.
3. Bar Top Condiment Holder
Whether it’s peanuts, pork scratchings or sliced lemons to pop in a corona, a condiment holder will add a nice bit of organisation to your home bar. The Garnish Bar Caddy is made up of four plastic containers attached to a non-slip base and is dishwasher safe which means no hassle on cleaning up afterwards.
4. Party Lights
Get the party started with these sound activated disco lights and bring a party vibe to your home bar. The lights will change colour to the beat of the music and can also be controlled with a hand remote which also can change colours or modes.

5. Personalised Bar Mat
Proudly proclaim the name of your bar or add any other cheeky message to your own personalised bar mat to place on your serving surface. This durable slip resistant mat will soak up any wayward spillage and also give you a nice platform on which to deliver your freshly poured beer just like a real landlord!

7. Beer Fridge
Keep your SUB kegs or several cans of lovely craft chilled in this Cookology beer fridge, another perfect addition to your bar. This fridge is probably one of the best value options in terms of size, price and volume it can hold and it can be placed under a bar or as a nice drinks display on your table top for guests to help themselves! The fridge is compact enough and versatile to be moved if necessary and is super quiet and energy efficient. There is enough space to hold roughly 40 x 440ml beer cans so you won’t be wasting time re-stocking it.

The sign is printed both sided and is made from aluminium so it will last for years and years even if placed outside. It comes pre-hung so all you need to do is attach it to the area you want to hang it.

Not quite ready to shell out for a SUB? No problem, the Gadgy Beer Dispenser is a great option for parties and is a cool addition to your bar. It’s super simple to use, fill the core compartment with ice and add your favourite beer for nicely chilled beer out of a tap. Whilst it won’t improve the quality of your beer it will hold roughly 6 pints so you will have plenty of beer ready for dispensing. It’s also great for BBQ’s in the summer and can be used for other liquids but we think having beer in it is best!
10. Branded Bar Runner

The sign features 38 LED lights to bring a nice upbeat glow to your bar without breaking the bank. There are key hole slots at the back of the letters in case you wanted to hang them somewhere but either way they would look great on any bar top.
