We specialize in all kinds of custom basement additions in the Indianapolis area, and our customers are happy to refer us to others because “We treat every home like it is our own”.

The Best Bar Features for Basement Remodeling

Wondering how to make a home bar as fun as the neighborhood pub while staying within budget? It’s simply a matter of choosing the right features and elements that make your family and friends happy. Some of the most fun and useful basement bar features include:

  • Pinball machines and old arcade cabinets, which can be purchased inexpensively if they’re not collectible
  • Coffee bar additions, which expand the use of the space to family members who don’t enjoy alcohol
  • Backlight fronts for the bar sections to increase the total lighting in the space due to the lack of windows in most basements
  • Extra wine storage in sliding racks that expand from inside a wall
  • Keg storage that stays at the right refrigeration temperature and dispenses directly from the cooler
  • Fireplaces or faux fire features to make the space feel cozy and homey
  • Separate entrances, complete with customized signage that makes it look like a real bar
  • Waterfall bar seating, which inverts the usual bar design so that chairs fit neatly under the open design
  • English or Irish pub accents, including aged brick veneers, rich leather seating, and moody understated lighting.
