Fancy another? We take a look at the prestige at-home bar

While homeowners in Sanctuary Cove are right on the doorstep of some exceptional nightlife, restaurants, bars and retailers, there’s something extra special about being able to continue the party at your very own prestige property.

Even with the pandemic comfortably behind us, there’s nothing like knowing that you’ve got everything you need to host your close friends and family for everything from casual Sunday afternoon drinks to all-out cocktails in black tie.

From casino-inspired gilt-filled affairs to understated chic setups, we’re looking at our top 4 favourite prestige home bar features. We’ll drink to that!

Hotel inspired

Designer home bar
The bar can easily become a showpiece

A 5-star hotel will always have the perfect bar to visit at any time of the day or night, so many prestige homeowners are taking inspiration from places like the W hotel series, the Shangri La or the Grand Hyatt. What do all these bars have in common? Ambience. And yes, you can recreate this in your property.

From dramatic colour schemes, strategic mood lighting and lavish bar equipment, the ultimate “staycation” home bar combines high class with a welcoming feel, and don’t forget the smooth jazz playing in the background.

Wine lovers apply here


If you’re a wine collector and always appreciate a fine vintage, you might like to open up your wine room for intimate tastings and gatherings with friends, family and colleagues. Not only is it a great way to show off your collection, but you can incorporate the wine storage and theme into the overall design setting. Think leather seats, soft lighting and some space for a cheese board and other accompaniments – even better if your wine cellar is located downstairs, for a wine hideaway where you can indulge and unwind.


Wine cellar



Sometimes the occasion calls for a drink a little earlier in the day, and the prestige home bar that’s designed for brunch is the perfect backdrop for a mimosa. Getting together with the girls, or if you need a spot to welcome in friends and family before a meal begins, a light, luxe and airy home bar is ideal.  With plenty of natural lighting, velvet chairs, gold trimmed fixtures and fresh colours, this easy-breezy home bar adjoins perfectly onto your main dining area for a simple transition from aperitif to entree.

Game time


When it comes down to the finals, you don’t want to be competing for space at a public sports bar – the prestige home bar can offer everything and more you need to celebrate the wins (or drown your sorrows).

Plenty of screens, an elite sound system and a relaxed atmosphere make the winning combination for your prestige sports bar at home. Complete the set-up with a pool table, plenty of space to lounge and even some recliner chairs to make viewing a pleasure. At Mercer & Cooper, we know prestige, and we know the Northern Gold Coast. We eat, drink, play and live here, and we’re looking forward to meeting you and learning how we can support your prestige home journey.
