Bar-height tables, also called pub tables, add height and dimension to an outdoor gathering space. Taller than typical tables, bar tables act as a stylish statement piece to outdoor pool areas, large patios and city balconies.
Why Choose Bar-Height Tables
High-top bar tables are 40-42 inches high, slightly above counter height. Paired with the right stools or chairs, a pub height table is a perfect place to gather over cold drinks or a summer meal on the patio. High tables work well in tight spaces. Because guests can use them as a gathering place to stand around and lean on, they don’t require chairs. They have a small footprint, so they’re perfect for busy areas or small porches. For the ultimate space-saver, go with a round bar table.
Use a bar table for conversation spots or eating areas. Guests can use them to put their drinks and snacks down as they mingle at an outdoor gathering. Or they can pull up a stool for a casual meal.
Outdoor Bar Table Styles to Consider
Tall bar tables come in materials and styles that work well in any outdoor decor scheme. Here are some ideas:
• Natural and Beachy. Choose a wood high top table for a rustic or beachy vibe. They’re water resistant and they naturally repel bugs. Their natural finish blends in with outdoor surroundings and looks at home in a wooded yard.
• Sleek and Slim. Metal bar tables are durable and weather resistant. Select from lightweight aluminum or heavy wrought iron. They have a slimmer profile, so they work especially well in smaller areas. For a modern or industrial-style space, go with a chrome finish.
• Artsy and Ornate. Take a more decorative approach with a mosaic or stone table. They make the perfect complement to a paver-covered patio.
Buy stools or chairs separately, or go with a set that includes a bar-height table and chairs. Choose outdoor bar stools that can easily tuck under the table when they’re not in use.
