1. Update the butler’s pantry Placing a home bar right next to the kitchen or in a little nook within it is the entertainer’s update on the butler’s pantry. A butler’s pantry was typically placed in a hallway between the kitchen and dining room and was used to store china, silver and serveware and for doing serving prep. Outfitted with a sink, wine cooler, bar for liquors and an espresso machine, this bar is ready for the homeowners and guests, whether to perk up in the morning or mix a happy-hour cocktail.
