Whether you're working on a bowl of cereal or a stiff drink, there's something specifically cozy about whiling away time at a home bar, feet dangling from the stool and everything you need for a refill right at your fingertips (
without the need for a bartender, or a bartender's attitude). For both buyers and renters (albeit ultra-wealthy ones), we've rounded up seven homes currently on the market with bars that range from breakfast nooks to set-ups for bona fide mixologists.
For a whopping $25,000 a month,
you can rent a Lincoln Square condo that includes a seated breakfast bar in the kitchen...
and a building-wide rooftop lounge with an outdoor bar (for when you get tired of the building's swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and countless other amenities).
For the extra performative home bartender,
this Turtle Bay three-bedroom goes for $21,500 a month, and includes a sleek white bar front and center in the living room (and in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows).

The marble countertop in the breakfast nook of
this $30,000/month Midtown three-bedroom is probably better suited to a low-key breakfast than a late night rager, but then again, it could be versatile.
Technically another breakfast bar--
this one in an $849,000 Williamsburg condo--but the black countertop and leather chairs make it a place where you could also happily knock back a few rounds after work.
If you've got
$34,000 a month to spare in rent, you can lounge on a barstool at the limestone countertops in the open kitchen in this Chelsea condo.
One more that works equally well for early morning or late night lounging (or the times when the two overlap)?
This $6.1 million Greenwich Village co-op, with all-white details, open layout, and plenty of natural light.
