20. Dark Eccentric Bar

Bar Design

If I ever want to feel fancy, this sounds like a great way to redo my home and start my life as a good citizen.

The royal room divider is one of my favorite things to use in any of my ACNH ideas.

It lets you use the room you have for different things without making it feel too crowded.

Some things, like the cherry blossoms and lamps, show that this place was also influenced by Japan.

This is also a great way to decorate your home with fake art, because let’s face it, we’ve all made that rookie mistake at some point while playing.

19. Purple Ice Bar

Let’s say you want to be able to hang out on your island even when it’s cold outside.

Why not make a bar with ice for your friends and neighbors?

The white background of this plan looks great with the purple colors. With just a few things, your bar is ready to serve customers.

Even though I would have put up fences to separate the island from the road, this is a great design idea to keep in mind if I ever decide to stick to a strict color palette for my island.

I also know that when winter is over, this design idea might not work for the rest of the island.

But I still think it’s a good idea for our guys as they head into the cold season in the south.

18. Cabin Indoor Pub

Let’s say you want to be able to hang out on your island even when it’s cold outside.

Why not make a bar with ice for your friends and neighbors?

The white background of this plan looks great with the purple colors. With just a few things, your bar is ready to serve customers.

Even though I would have put up fences to separate the island from the road, this is a great design idea to keep in mind if I ever decide to stick to a strict color palette for my island.

I also know that when winter is over, this design idea might not work for the rest of the island.

But I still think it’s a good idea for our guys as they head into the cold season in the south.

17. Tokyo Rooftop Bar

After not going out for a few years, some people miss the nightlife.

But Animal Crossing is there for you, right?

Here’s another design idea that I thought was both original in concept and in how it was made.

I think it’s pretty clever how this player used databases and neon signs to make a city theme. And the attention to small details, like the champagne glass and the machine that crushes ice, is amazing.

I have too many inflatable pools in the store room of my house. So I think it’s great that this player also added one without making it look out of place. Cheers!

16. Home Tavern

Here’s another way you can put a bar in a small room in your house.

I like how wooden pieces were used to make the back of the bar. Just looks awesome.

Also, if you bought extra K.K. records by chance, hanging them up is a great way to decorate. Adding a pool table with a dart game machine is always a safe bet with this theme.

15. Music Beach Bar

It’s always a good idea to open a bar on the beach, just like our last offer, right?

But all places in the northern hemisphere have the most fun when summer comes around.

Adding a live music part to this style is as close as you can get to real life.

Hope that your people can find a place to sit while you make some drinks.

And if this design makes you want to make something similar on your island, you could add a vacation area so you and your friends can swim or lay out in the sun.

14. Elegant Hotel Bar

Now I have to say that this style looks amazing.

It looks like something I might find in a high-end hotel or the financial area of a big city.

You can easily set the scene for a formal party with the leather sofas, candles, and flower arrangements.

Most of the items used in this bar with a hotel theme can be bought at Nook’s Cranny or made yourself once you have the DIY recipe.

So check in, get something to drink at the bar, and warm up by the fireplace.

13. Classic Indoor Bar

I’d love to make my friends fancy drinks at my house.

But since I’m a millennial and can’t afford a place in this economy, the best thing I can do is decorate an area of my digital ACNH home with custom panels that look like cabins full of alcohol…

Then they set up a beautiful bar.

Animal Crossing does have the standard items you need to build a bar, but using different tables and chairs can help your plan stand out.

12. Outdoor Pub

One of the best things that creative players can do is use unique patterns as background panels.

This idea is just one example of how the right items, color palette, and designs can create an amazing atmosphere.

The gnome sitting by the bar and the guitar with a microphone set up for a random singer are both unique and great-looking elements.

You can make these ideas your own by using any things you already have.

11. Indoor Lounge Bar

The skyline wallpapers and lounge bar from Sahara might be one of the best ways to make the right lounge area in your home.

Darkness and neon colors are a standard way to create a bar atmosphere, and here you can even add a small arcade area with a jukebox.

And in this indoor lounge, the room is made up of a lot of different pieces that still work well with the idea. So it’s very different from the other ideas on this list.

Who wants a drink now?

10. Sports Bar

I’m not a huge sports fan, but I loved the idea of having a sports bar in my basement where my friends and I could hang out.

To make something like this, add a small playground area for some healthy competition while you wait for the next match.

And don’t forget the bar itself, which you can top with cooking tools or anything else you want.

As I’ve said before, putting carpets and other things in a room to divide it into smaller parts can help you make better use of the space you have.

Still, if you want a huge sports bar in your basement, I don’t blame you.

9. Seaside Bar

I’m in love with this beachside bar made of wood.

Not only do you get the bar and a place to sit, but the coffee stand also helps tie the design together if you want to keep adding things to the rest of the site.

The floor has a unique pattern that matches the furniture exactly.

Still, you can use the basic wooden floor if you’ve already used up the 50 extra slots that came with version 1.9.0.

Signs and walls will also help you give the pumpkin bar your own special touch.

8. Vintage Pub

Why not turn your house into an old-fashioned pub? It’s clever and certainly one of a kind.

I really like how this idea has a bar right next to a seating area with a TV. On a cold winter night, it seems like the best place to be.

Not only that, but putting the chess table next to the pool table seems like a good idea.

This design idea was inspired by the feeling of having a pint at your favorite bar.

7. Packed Night Bar

Even though we may sometimes feel like we can only change an idea so many times before it gets old, this design still feels new and fresh.

And it’s just a simple idea for a bar!

One of the most common ways to make a room like this feel alive is to cover the walls with art, banners, and plaques.

Again, custom designs are always a great way to make any idea come to life. So try to be smart about how you use your custom design spots.

6. Fancy Indoor Bar

Most of us just copy designs we find on the Internet, like the bottles in the background that look like they belong in a bar. But if you think outside the box, you can do a lot!

I also think the piano stools go well with this fancy bar design. It’s a good way to make things more interesting with decorations without taking away from the main idea.

Even though the table football doesn’t seem to fit in with the other things, I could still see myself putting this back together in my own ACNH home.

5. Hawaiian Beach Bar

There’s nothing like making a beach bar where people can drink and hang out.

Custom tiki bars are a popular theme in Animal Crossing, and it’s easy to see why: we get to play in the middle of the ocean!

The barrels as tables are a nice twist on this idea, and the stands with coconut drinks and unique designs will always get my vote.

4. Sushi Bar

When I think of a bar, I sometimes think of something else…

Some players have also thought of clever ways to add homemade sushi bars to their islands, like this one.

It gives you a good reason to show off fish tanks as decorations, along with bamboo things and other well-thought-out details that make you feel like you’re really there.

Even though this isn’t a standard bar in the West, I still think this design idea should be on this list because of how well it was done.

3. Tiki Bar 2.0

OK, maybe I wouldn’t choose a standard tiki bar as the first bar on my island.

But I have to say that this idea is beautifully thought out.

The art statue and stream caught my eye right away. You could really run with that idea by adding your own favorite figures.

I also have way too many flowers on my island, so decorating the bar with them might be the best idea ever.

Plus, the moai statue is the cherry on top of a pia colada after a hard day of fishing, catching bugs, and cutting down trees.

2. NYC-styled Bar & Club

With this simple but elegant indoor setup, I want to live out my dream of going to a fancy lounge in downtown New York.

You can use any of the new responses from the latest updates on the dance floor, chill out in the sitting area, or pretend you’re a good DJ.

I think you and all your animal friends could enjoy a few drinks in this awesome basement build, no matter how you feel.

I know how frustrating it can be to get some things from TeleNook, like the dance floor lights. But if you use time travel, you might be able to get things from the catalog faster.

Don’t do this as long as there are turnips on your island.

1. Basement Tiki Bar & Lounge

How else could you add a bar to your house after you’ve filled it with things?

Well, why not choose a style for your basement that has two uses in one?

Add an arcade room to a tiki bar to change things up.

I love how star pieces were used as table decorations in this play. So cool!

There are also a lot of tropical-themed things in ACNH, which makes it a popular choice for an indoor bar with a tropical theme.

And if you look closely, you can see that this player put a medium-sized fish to the right side of this screenshot to make it look even more real.
