The best garden bar ideas can transform the way you use your garden, upgrading it to somewhere you feel excited about hosting parties, hanging out with friends or simply relaxing with loved ones when winding down.

They needn't take up too much space in your garden design as a whole either — it is quite possible to use just a small corner or your garden for a bar area. Likewise, they don't have to cost thousands of pounds to construct. There are plenty of low cost garden bar ideas around that are easy to build on a DIY basis.
