The most memorable summer nights involve good company and good drinks in a properly outfitted setting to match. To set the mood for winding up or down with Tanqueray, Cool Hunting has selected seven unique pieces for a convivial, comfortable and impeccably designed outdoor party to keep the cocktails and conversation flowing. From vintage-inspired lighting to a modern take on classic sound, the following items can help set the stage for a night that you and your best will never forget.
Luxembourg Bar Cart
The classic trolley gets a smart revamp for today’s sophisticated host to transport and show off their imbibing offerings. Updated with a convenient, removable serving tray and a sleek weatherproof powder coat finish, the Luxembourg Bar Cart carries the party wherever it needs to go.
Ideal for preparing a proper late-summer feast for family and friends, the elegant Druida Barbecue from Mermeladaestudio adds a sense of ambiance by blending fashion and function. The familiar charcoal setup invokes a sense of nostalgia, while the perfectly retro design elements and beautiful materials of the Druida will help feed party-goers and look great doing it.
Set the tone of the evening with this undeniably sexy and dramatic take on a time-honored audio format. The clean lines and pristine form take the Megaphone ceramic passive amplifier iPod speaker from classic to modern, all the while filling the air with big-band sound.
Gather a group of old friends around this handsome iron fire pit for a long night of legendary storytelling. The supremely simple bowl-shaped brazier creates a welcoming atmosphere to cooler late-summer evenings.
The wall-mounted Wallbanger liquor cabinet offers a clever solution to smaller urban outdoor space. The convenient, subtle and practical cabinet opens to reveal a working station for crafting cocktails with plenty of room left for limes, tonic and other bar essentials needed for an efficient party re-supply.
The vintage-inspired Huck Duck hanging lamps add an interesting industrial feel with a fun vibe. While the construction is new, the materials and craftsmanship are tried-and-true, conjuring up the days of neighborhood gin joints with a slightly more slick finish. Pair with the warm glow of an Edison lightbulb and an artisanally crafted cocktail to really set a sophisticated, festive mood.
The Picnic Table
This hand-assembled, custom picnic table from Union Wood & Supply Co. combines industrially weathered wood planks and polished steel framework for a juxtaposition of rustic and modern design. Most importantly, its ample proportions and handsome looks invite the gang to gather around and stay a while.
PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY.
