5 Ways Modern Homes Are Using Pub Tables… with Examples

Pub tables today are surging in popularity and are being used for more than just a bar or pub. Here’s 5 ways this hot trend is being used in homes.

1. Pub Tables for Small Kitchens

If you have a small kitchen, a pub table will be a big space-saver for you! These high table tops can seat 2, 3, 4 or more people, depending on the size you get. They typically come in square, rectangular and circular sizes. 

A pub table, being that it’s higher than a dining table, will give the kitchen a multi-dimensional look. Here are some examples:

2. Pub Tables in Game Rooms & Near Billiard Tables

Often times, you’ll see a pub table in a game room next to a pool/billiard table. They’re brilliant for overseeing the game as they’re higher than the table. Here are some inspiring examples:

This next example is really clever. Note the four stools against the wall with a pub table in the middle of the two and a pub table on both side. This ensures each guest gets their own table and all four chairs are facing the action.

These small pub tables are a fun additional to this game room, which features a ping pong table:

Don’t have much room in your wine cellar? A simple pub table is just fine without seating, as it allows guests to stand around the table and mingle for a bit.

4. Pub Tables Provide a Superb View

Are you blessed with a breathtaking view? If so, a pub table is a sure win! It’ll bring you up a little higher and make you feel on top of the world. Plus, these make for a romantic evening after the sun goes down.
