While many of us have long since carved out workspace in our homes, a dedicated in-home bar space – whether an entire room, a clever wet-bar built-in or a simple dedicated shelf, table or trolley – still feels fresh, bringing home some of the fun of going out.
We think the collection of WRJ-designed spaces below raise the bar on at-home cocktails, signaling a continuing trend for the coming year – in both bars and homes in the West’s wide-open spaces…
Rocky Mountain saloon meets chic contemporary styling in the custom-designed game room of this Jackson Hole home, complete with a pool table by James Perse, overlooking the home’s great room and the kitchen.
The elegantly rustic bar in WRJ owners Rush Jenkins and Klaus Baer’s own darling Wyoming guest cottage, recently seen in House Beautiful, features a Mountain Modern mix of elegant stone counters and reclaimed wood shelving invisibly mounted on shiplap walls.
A dedicated built-in bar space lends color and sparkle to the living room of this contemporary Jackson Hole home.

For those who prefer teatime over happy hour, a tea tray for two may hit the spot – or easily switch out to cocktail makings with glasses at hand in the cupboard above. Either way, this Jackson Hole kitchen exudes a sense of calm with sleek modern walnut cabinets topped with cristallo quartzite.
