Building an Outdoor Tiki Bar In Your Own Backyard

Posted on: May 15th, 2013

Are you the neighborhood’s residential mixologist? If you love to entertain and serve your friends’ creative cocktails, take it one step further and build an outdoor tiki bar in your backyard.  Some might call this an outdoor kitchen, but if you do it right, it’s more than a boring outdoor kitchen, it becomes your very own tropical tiki bar.  

You can have your outdoor tiki bar custom built to include shelves, fridges, and cabinets; a fully-functional outdoor kitchen. But the real magic is the environment you create for your friends and family: a backyard tiki bar is a social haven that’s inviting and sheltering all at once.

Construct your outdoor tiki bar frame with bamboo poles or eucalyptus timber, and then enhance the style using these techniques:

  • Use rolled bamboo fence panels for the counter front of the bar, which is not only beautiful but is extremely durable and long-lasting as well as very easy to install.
  • Incorporate bamboo slats for the bar counter trim, which are harvested from the outer skin and wall of large diameter bamboo and then sanded to make a flattened surface.
  • Use bamboo skin board for the countertop, coat with a polyurethane to give a waterproof clean finish. Carry this theme to the cabinets and use the bamboo skin board for decorative cabinet door inserts.
  • Finally, select one of our many natural or synthetic thatch roofing options to shelter your outdoor tiki bar area. amaZulu has three natural thatch roofing options as well as seven synthetic thatch roofing materials to choose from.

Why socialize somewhere else when you can create an outdoor tiki hut and spend more time entertaining at home?
