HOST AT HOME
Scene: No Bar Like Home
There really is no bar like home, because in this scene the bar can be just about anywhere. Bar Cart. Bathtub. Bookshelf. Back of that vintage roadster you never drive. Shaken or stirred, you name the place. We’ll bring the drinks, clinks, and a record or two for garnish.
After Dinner Trivia
We know alot about a lot, but we're not know it alls. That doesn't mean we don't love a little trivia to keep the party going after the meal has stopped. These clever, beautifully packaged cards are the perfect compliment to your after dinner digestif—toss out a few and see who truly paid attention during all that fancy book learning.
Bitter us up. Jack Rudy brings another classic to your bar cart with their versatile take on standard aromatic bitters, versatile enough for any cocktail enthusiast. With burnt cane sugar syrup as a base, we love the notes of citrus and winter spices. Use it to revisit your favorite classic cocktails like the Manhattan and the Old Fashioned. To cure a vicious hangover, simply add several generous drops to soda water or ginger ale and drink up. Don't mind if we do!
Retro Cocktail Picks (Scene Exclusive)
This product is sold exclusively in The Scene: No Bar Like Home. Who said a garnish had to be garish? Made from highly durable bamboo and strong enough for your most ambitious Bloody Mary, these retro inspired cocktail picks take your bar cart compositions from sad to sublime.
Wine Tasting Party Kit
Looking to explore vintages but not sure where to start? Our Wine Tasting Party Kit from Inklings includes everything you'll need for a night of tasting with friends! (just add wine) For a blind tasting, conceal bottles with a paper bag and hang a numbered tag around the bottle neck. Guests can fill out their tasting cards by adding notes and rating their wines. On the reverse side of the tasting cards are some suggestions on how to taste wine so that everyone from beginners to novice wine tasters can enjoy themselves. Free printable invitation included—details inside the box! Cheers.
Act It Dinner Party Game
We all have that one friend who kills it at charades. Let this be the opportunity to level the playing field. With 320 game plays, we love the prompts as a platform for dinner party shenanigans. Alternatively, pick one adverb and one action stick and act them out together for your guests to guess. We're game!
Brass Wine Opener
There's this Italian restaurant in the village staffed solely by handsome native Italian men, and they only open wine with wine keys like this while gazing directly into your eyes as they recite the specials. There's something about it that makes me feel VERY much like tossing all the fancy wine contraptions I have away and just saying yes to a bold Barolo, a simple wine key, and a nice boy from Abruzzi.
Petite Enamel Cocktail Tray
Every once in a while, an objet comes along that we must declare: ESSENTIAL. Oh, do you need something chic for your barcart? Oh, do you need something beautiful to corral oils on your bathroom counter? Oh, do you need something for your coffee table for a chic candle and some overpriced plants? This is your essential, do-it-all tray. Use it in the day to day as the little work horse it is, and clear it off when company comes over for the perfect piece of serveware.
Classic Petite Mixing Glass (Scene Exclusive)
This product is sold exclusively in The Scene: No Bar Like Home. It's 1955. You're at the Surf Club in Miami. Dinner is strictly white tie, but the band is hot, and cocktails are strong. The bartender mixes you up a Mai Tai, and you drift out to Peacock Alley to watch the sunset. Life is good. So is the mixing glass he made that cocktail in. Coincidence?
Extra Large Textured Tray
Perfect for coffee table styling or centerpiece decadence, this extra large tray grounds your space in texture and patina. Add books, some flowers, our favorite taper candles, and you've already got a vibe. We also won't tell if you just want to fill it up with disco balls.
Fringed Dreamy Cocktail Napkin, Set of 2
There is something about these napkins that just calls out for a slice of cake and a glass of champagne. We're getting a very Coppola-esque Marie Antoinette, all decadence, and no restraint. Neon Lace, one of our favorite artisans, hand-dyes antique linens with non-toxic materials using traditional techniques in New York's Hudson Valley. See, not all treats are bad for you! Indulge yourself already.
