Now that we have a good idea of what it’s like to be bar-hopping with friends, here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:1.
Call out your bar-b-que.
This may sound like the ultimate bar-related prank, but it works well for any time of year.2.
Create your own bar-themed food truck.
Bar-bakery owner Nicky Mascola created this simple, bar-inspired take on the classic Bar-B-Q Truck, which he calls “a fun and playful take on traditional bar-food.”3.
Make a video of you bar hopping with your friends.
Make sure you upload the video to YouTube and use a camera phone, because you’ll want to share it with friends or family.4.
Do a short dance to your favorite bar music.
The music is always great, but you can also use the time to enjoy the bar’s music-and-drink specials, including a rotating selection of beers from the city’s finest breweries.5.
Have a bar-specific party.
You’ll want a special drink at your bar of choice and a bar napkin to keep your friends entertained during your next date night.6.
Do your best to make your bar feel like home.
A great way to do this is to make a few DIY bar decor items and stick them on your walls.
Some creative options include an Americana-style wall, a vintage mural, and an original cocktail stand.7.
Make your own cocktail bar.
There are so many great cocktails out there that it’s impossible to choose just one, so try to find a bar with a cocktail bar-like vibe.
Just be sure to pick one that has the right cocktail, like an Old Fashioned, a Scotch and a Rum, or a drink made with fresh ingredients.8.
Make some DIY party favors.
It’s always nice to get a craft cocktail from home that you can put on your mantle or hang on the wall.9.
Make it a party!
You can also try to make some homemade cocktails at home, or use the bar as a backdrop for a themed party.10.
Make an awesome party drink.
Some of the more creative drinks include a gin and tonic or a gin-and a Coke.
But you can definitely use your bar as the backdrop for any themed party you’re having.
