One of the things we’ve really (and we mean really) missed during lockdown is having a drink at a local pub or heading to a bar.

We’re not knocking having a drink at home - there are lots of great things about indulging in a glass of wine in front of the TV or with a loved one in the garden - but there’s something exciting about having your drinks served from behind a counter, isn’t there?

It changes things up, it makes things interesting and it’s fun.

However, even with pubs and restaurants set to open in July (according to current Government projections), it’s unlikely it will feel the same as it once did for a long time to come.

But don’t worry, we’ve found a solution: John Lewis are selling a garden tiki bar and we could not be more excited by it.

A genuine tiki bar of our own - who would have thought we’d ever see the day?

The Honolulu Bar is not only functional, it looks good too, meaning that even when not in use, it works as an interesting feature in your garden.

And, though you have the provide the alcohol yourself and there are no fancy bartenders, there’s something undeniably cool about having your own bar.

Proof of just how many ‘cool’ it is, Wickes launched their own ‘Build Your Own Bar’ last week, priced at £350 and the product is already sold out.
