Consider it a comeback. In an era when hanging at a pub is literally off-limits, the home bar is no longer frivolous—it’s necessary. This family-friendly lounge was designed by the Brooklyn-based duo of Cristina Casañas-Judd and General Judd, and is packed with everything you need for your pod. The punchy, modern Old West–inspired room mixes an overscale basket-weave wallcovering, electric-blue cabinetry, a Day of the Dead print, and graphic black-and-white tiles to let you know the party’s here. What looks like a surfboard is actually a sound system primed for dance-offs and sing-a-thons. The bar (aka a mini kitchen of its own) is stocked with tools to prevent any need to run upstairs, like a popcorn-ready microwave, a two-in-one beverage fridge, an ice maker, and even a dishwasher. A beer tap and in-counter wine chiller promise to make your family bar the place to be.
