Small Outdoor Kitchen Ideas: Bartending Center

Small outdoor spaces have 10 or less feet of usable space for outdoor kitchen cabinetry. A small area may feel like a detriment if you desire a luxurious outdoor cooking or bartending center. With the right outdoor kitchen brand, though, you can design a fully functional bartending station even with limited space.

Brown Jordan® Outdoor Kitchens offers the design flexibility to create an outdoor bartending center that suits your personal taste. We manufacture 304 and 316 (marine) grade stainless steel cabinetry in many styles to house virtually all amenities. We also offer a variety of door styles and an award-winning powder coat collection.

In this article, we discuss some ideas for designing a small outdoor bartending station. When thinking about your design, consider elements like location, styles, colors, and amenities.


Ideally, the function of your outdoor bartending center should afford you the same conveniences as indoors. You can place your bartending center near your indoor kitchen or use it as a standalone unit. Common applications include a deck, patio, balcony, a flat rooftop, or even poolside.

The stainless steel cabinetry manufactured by Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens is available in hundreds of sizes in 3” increments. We engineer our cabinetry for durability in virtually all climates. The beauty of choosing us for your bartending center is freedom with location and configuration, with no cover required.

At Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens, we recognize the importance of having a signature style in your outdoor space. For this reason, we offer a variety of cabinetry types and door styles. We recommend modern styles and clean lines for smaller spaces.

Traditional Door Styles

Our stainless steel cabinetry is a staple in the most luxurious outdoor living spaces. Our unrivaled collection of door styles are powder coated before being hand-assembled for a seamless finish. Consider styles like Hampton, Louver, Beadboard, and Venice for an elegant and sophisticated style. For a finished look on all sides, add powder coated end and back panels in your chosen door style.


TECNO is a sleek door style with an integrated handle, offering full-height door fronts and nested drawers. The clean lines of TECNO make this collection popular for smaller spaces. The powder coated integrated handle also reduces maintenance.


ELEMENTS is a popular choice for spaces like balconies. This collection is a modular solution with cabinet boxes that sit on a frame. Choose from sink cabinets, trash cabinets, refrigerator cabinets, and even pass-through cabinets for all your bartending needs.


Your color palette choice is especially important in a small space. We recommend choosing light colors for your bartending center to make your space appear larger. Metallic and glossy finishes will have the same effect. We offer a complete palette of award-winning powder coat finishes to enhance a clean, sleek aesthetic.

To make your space seem larger, consider colors like White Silk, Champagne 304, Seashell White, Plata 62, and Platinum on your bartending station.

Bartending Amenities

Common bartending amenities include a sink, trash, and refrigerator. For more luxurious options, consider ice makers, wine coolers, kegerators, and speed rails. Regardless of your needs, our cabinetry can accommodate it all.

Your outdoor refrigerator can have two drawers, glass fronts, or powder coated panels to match your cabinetry. Our sink cabinets are available in one and two door options. Our trash pull-out cabinets are available with an optional added top drawer. Include base cabinetry for plenty of outdoor storage for bartending necessities, like blenders, drinking glasses, and cocktail shakers.

Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchen has the design flexibility to create a bartending center in your small outdoor space. Choose from a variety of styles, colors, and amenities for a durable and attractive entertainment hub in your backyard.
