On the Las Vegas strip, the rooftop bar is the place to see and be seen. When a summer evening is cooling off, what is more enticing than the patio of your favorite restaurant? There’s something about the open air, the intoxicating aroma of food, and the cool refreshingness of a muddled cocktail to free up the flow of conversation and really let loose.

Creating the perfect outdoor bar area, whether it’s for a 5-star resort or the backyard, is all about facilitating the free flow of movement so guests can mix and mingle. The right outdoor furniture selections can flow traffic in a fun relaxing way from indoors to outdoors, from the bar to the grill, and even to a pool or outdoor lounge.

First you want to make sure the seats are at the right height to fit comfortably under the bar or counter height surface. The traditional bar height stool sits 28-32” or so off the ground to fit under a 40-45” high bar table. However, you may be looking to create a social gathering area around an outdoor kitchen island. In that case, you would want an outdoor counter height stool that sit a few inches lower (typically 24-26” high).

Curran offers a wide assortment of different design styles and material profiles for the various vibes of outdoor bars. A brewery or winery might have a patio or outdoor bar with a country rustic style. In that case a simple solid teak bar stool like Bermuda from Barlow Tyrie might be ideal.

A tropical tiki bar would be complemented by the airy open weave of the DEDON SEASHELL bar stool. The sleek modern rooftop bar of a restored Art Deco hotel would be enhanced by the tapered stiletto-like feet of Gloster Archi, or the ornamental teak armrests and industrial-style polished steel of the Barlow Tyrie Equinox Carver Chair.

There are a few other functional and cosmetic features to consider when selecting an outdoor bar stool. A backless outdoor bar stool like the Houe ReCLIPS bar stool is ideal for space-limited situations and adding extra seating around an assortment of outdoor cocktail tables, for example. At only 7 lbs, this ergonomic wonder is very mobile and versatile, and interestingly enough, constructed from repurposed household Danish plastic waste. Sounds like a great conversation starter!

An outdoor swivel bar stool like the Barlow Tyrie Titan makes watching multiple screens at an outdoor sports bar a breeze. The Garpa Fontenay Teak Barstool is great for a garden event and folds up neatly to stow during the off-season. 

Shop our modular outdoor lounge furniture for creating seating islands on the terrace. Curran also sells poolside patio umbrellas and chaise lounges. For the ultimate in exclusive outdoor experiences, see our selection of cabanas. For something a little lower to the ground, bistro tables make for a space-saving solution for hospitality settings.
