The Coolest Home Bars on Airbnb

We always have a good drink on the brain—even when we’re booking travel. There are tons of hotels across the world that cater to cocktailians, whether they feature complimentary happy hours, swim-ups bars or rooftop lounges with sweeping views. Even though we love the hotel life, sometimes Airbnb is a better option for certain locations and budgets. Fortunately there are plenty of homes on Airbnb with bars that are way more impressive than any hotel mini bar. So the next time you want to cozy up to homier accommodations, book one of these beautiful Airbnb rentals that feature some of the coolest home bars we’ve seen. Stock up at the liquor store before you check in and play bartender for the duration of your stay.

Desert Mediterranean Estate, Rancho Mirage, California

Celebs like Lady Gaga have called this sprawling estate home for the night, enjoying things like a fully-equipped chef’s kitchen and a spa. But we’re pining over the indoor/outdoor bar that provides gorgeous views of the property’s pool and fire pits.

Unique Artist Mirrored House, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Although the bar in this Pennsylvania home is pretty standard in terms of looks, the house where it’s located is completely insane. The large artist’s house features hundreds of mirrors inside and out, eye-popping prints and massive fish tanks for a retreat that is a sensory overload in the best way.

Moganshan Zhen Villa Phoenix, De Qing, China

This 150-year-old restored villa is situated on Moganshan Mountain and is the perfect place from which to enjoy rural China with all the comforts of home. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home features a gas barbecue, a pizza oven and a large bar with cushy stools in the living room area.

Tile House, Twentynine Palms, California

Located just 10 miles from the entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, this whimsical desert sanctuary is designed with thousands of tile, glass and ceramic pieces. The mosaicked bar is our favorite part of the property, where we would no doubt drink an El Guapo, aptly made with desert pear syrup.

Paris Luxury Houseboat, Puteaux, France

This gorgeous houseboat is docked on the island of Puteaux, which is just a bus or metro ride away from the center of Paris. Its glossy red bar is part of a large, fully-equipped kitchen and features four taps that dispense icy cold beverages.

Artist Loft, Providence, Rhode Island

Fans of open loft living will gawk in envy at this modern Providence space. The rental takes up an entire floor of the building and features amenities like a fireplace, a pool table and a large chef’s kitchen. The loft’s portable bar is small but mighty—perfect for mixing a pre-dinner drink.

Love Nest, Morongo Valley, California

The coolest part of this funky California ranch rental is the private two-person bar in the bedroom where you and your honey can imbibe in complete solitude. If you feel like socializing, you can also take your drinking downstairs to the Draft Horse Saloon where you can park yourself in a horse saddle in lieu of a bar stool.

Punta Sayulita Treehouse, Sayulita, Mexico

This three-bedroom luxury treehouse is like something out of a dream. The property is surrounded by a lush jungle canopy and features wraparound terraces, a jacuzzi-style plunge pool and luxe decor. Have a seat at the granite bar and enjoy the most tropical tequila- or mezcal-spiked beverage you can muster.
