How to Set Up Your Own Sports Bar at Home

 Every day, millions of people all over the planet visit their favorite sports bars. Ever since the world’s first bar of this type opened in St Louis, Missouri in the 1930s, they have proved to be a massive success with sports fans.

 However, what if you would rather watch the games at home while still enjoying the unique atmosphere of a sports bar? In that case, you might want to consider the idea of setting up your own private bar in your home.

Choose the Right Location

Do you have the perfect place to build your own sports bar? Some people do this in their garage, in a spare room or even outdoors. It makes sense to carefully consider all of the different options open to you.

How big do you need it to be? What access do you need to the kitchen, the bathroom, and other parts of the house? Will the noise generated there disturb neighbors or people in the other parts of the house? There are a number of points to take into account when making your final decision. 

Get a Big-Screen Television

What is the first thing that you notice when you walk into a sports bar? Typically, it will be the giant screens that are showing the action. Look for a big television that lets you and your guests watch the games comfortably.

To choose the right size, you need to think about the size of the room and the number of people who will be watching at any given time. The distance that the viewers will be from the screen is also important. For example, if you are going to be more than 9 feet away then a minimum of a 60-inch screen is recommended.

The quality of the sound is also important. Choose the best sound system that your budget allows, so that the room is filled with the authentic atmosphere of an NFL, NBA, or NHL match. This adds tremendously to the occasion for your guests and they will soon be discussing NFL odds or the next drafted players in the NBA rosters.

Add Comfortable Seating

You will want your guests to feel right at home when they get here. After all, an NBA game can last for up to 2 and a half hours, while the average NFL match runs for over 3 hours. You don’t want them to be sitting uncomfortably and wondering how soon they can leave.

Take a look around your favorite sports bars, to see the kind of seating that they use. Would you prefer to use bar stools or plush sofas? If the space is big enough then a variety of different types of seating can make sure that everyone can choose something that suits them.

Put Up Some Sports Memorabilia

What is it that is going to set your bar apart and make it a fun place to watch any type of sport?  A simple but highly effective way of doing this is by putting up some sports memorabilia.

This could mean photos of your team in action or it could simply be whatever interesting things you can get hold of at a reasonable cost. Of course, you don’t need to spend as much as the $5.64 million record paid out for Babe Ruth’s Jersey.

The sports memorabilia market is filled with all sort of fascinating object at different prices, so it is worth looking around before settling on something to purchase. It makes sense to choose items from the sports you are most likely to watch there. However, the truth is that any sort of good memorabilia will give the bar a wonderfully authentic feel. 

By carrying out each of these steps, you will soon have your own private sports bar to be proud of.
