With Google Trends reporting spikes in searches for ‘At Home Bar’ and Aldi’s new Rattan Bar selling out in record time, it’s clear Brits are continuing to create their very own DIY backyard boozers. The supermarket group has also shared tips from the winners of the ‘Best At-Home Bar’.

Tommy and Lyndsay Castleman from Leicester, won the coveted cash prize for the most inventive at-home bar. The Duke of Wellington pub scooped top prize for its cosy and traditional home vibe.
The couple shared their tips on what it takes to create an at-home bar, “The best at-home bars are all about personality! We wanted to dedicate this bar to a recently passed family member, so we filled it with memoirs including a self-portrait to help create a lovely space.
“It’s important when hosting to have a selection of different spirits, wines and beers, so you can cater to all tastebuds. We always make sure our bar is fully stocked with glassware too, from wine glasses to tumblers for a decent G&T!”
