How to Build a Backyard Tiki Bar

30 January 2010 3 Comments

If you would like to throw up your own backyard tiki bar but don’t really want to go to the time or expense of building a high-quality one, Threadless presents a nice little video on how to set up a simple outdoor tiki bar.  To get started, you will need an old dresser or shelf (this will become the base of the bar), a bamboo screen, 4 – 4ft 1×2 strips, cordless drill and screws, grass skirts, wire cutter, galvenized wire, and a couple of hawaiian leis.

This is a quick and simple way to build a nice little backyard tiki bar.  Of course, if you are looking for something more, you should check out our tiki bar reviews.

After you get your tiki bar built, don’t forget to set yourself up with tiki torches and decor!

    […] And everybody knows you can’t have a surf shack without a Tiki bar. You can wrap an old wet-bar with some Lampac or other grass weave wall mats, or improv a Tiki bar something like these guys in their video. […]
