Mad Men may be over, but your obsession with midcentury barware lingers on. Regardless if you’re a whiskey-on-the-rocks person or a fruity-blended-tiki-drink person, the right bar supplies can be a great hosting tool and a fun collection to start. If you’re looking to start stocking your bar with bar tools, vintage glasses and cool coasters, we’ve got the picks for you!
There are cocktail glasses of every shape, size and pattern you can imagine. We love these vintage Aqua and Gold Atomic Pilsners because the tall glasses can suit anything from a Long Island Iced Tea to a light beer.
For those rocks glasses or martinis, here’s another versatile option. Clean and sharp with a striking silhouette, these Down Time Martini Glasses are the perfect addition to a minimalist bar collection.
If you’re going to decant, decant in style. With it’s long, slender neck and Blenko-esque stopper, this Italian-made Blue Midcentury Decanter with Teardop Stopper will catch any guest’s eye from across the bar.
A true barware aficionado knows that Bakelite is the midcentury bar tool of choice. Keep everything on deck, from citrus reamer to bar spoon, with the 8-Piece Bakelite Tortoise Bar Tool set.
A collection of cool swizzle sticks offers two functions: drink mixing and drink identification. Make sure every cool cat at your party is accounted for with glass or plastic swizzle sticks. We love these fruit-topped glass sticks, but Etsy is full of options for your bar!
Bring that pop of color and famed midcentury style to your bar with a little touch of Eames and Bertoia on this Midcentury Model Coaster Set.
Last but not least, don’t forget to have a bar cart that is just as swanky as the liquors and bar collectibles you put on it. For that classy wood ‘n’ brass look, we like this Midcentury Bar Cart.
