Bar Glasses to Elevate Your Next Happy Hour
While the wine and spirits are obviously important, having a well-stocked bar goes far beyond what's in your liquor cabinet. Whether you regularly host cocktail parties, love having a few friends over for a casual drink or just enjoy a solo nightcap from time to time, having the right bar glasses on hand can make all the difference. From etched glass coupe glasses to sleek high balls and delicate martini glasses, Williams Sonoma Canada has everything you need to fully outfit your bar.
Your bar glassware needs will, of course, depend on what you prefer to drink and serve. Oenophiles will want to focus on having the right wine glasses for their favourite varietals. If you prefer mixed drinks, you might opt for highballs and old-fashioned glasses, both of which will also work well for serving water, iced tea or other non-alcoholic drinks. Of course, if your go-to cocktail is a martini, margarita or Moscow mule, you'll want to make sure you have the proper glasses on hand. Steins and pint glasses should also be stocked if you plan on serving beer. If your entertaining plans include the occasional barbecue or backyard happy hour, you should also consider adding some shatter-resistant outdoor drinkware to your collection of glassware and bar tools.
In addition to all of the types of bar glasses you could possibly need, Williams Sonoma Canada's collection of drinkware includes glassware in a range of different styles, so whether your aesthetic is minimalist and modern or more traditional, you'll have no trouble finding bar glasses that blend seamlessly with the rest of your dinner and serveware.
