Spectator Height Bar Stools

These 34 inch bar stools are also known as spectator height bar stools. These stools were originally designed for billiard halls to give “spectators” a better view of the game. Their height provided an unobstructed view of the pool table and the angles of the shots.

Ideal for 44-36″ High Counters

These 34 inch bar stools are ideal for homes with counters or bars that are higher than the standard 42 inch.

If you have counters that are 44-46 inches high, they’ll pair perfectly with a 34 inch spectator stool. This height will give you 10-12 inches between the seat of the stool and your countertop.

Spectator height measurements

Larger people may require more distance, and shorter people, less. Depending on your comfort level, a 34-inch stool can be used at a 48 inch high bar.

Please be sure to measure the height of your counter before choosing the seat height of your bar stool. You can even visit your favorite local bar or restaurant to test the seating height. For more tips on how to choose the right seat height, click here for our guide.

Many 34 inch are built for use indoors or outdoors. They go great with a tall pub table on the deck, balcony, or pool deck. They’re also a natural fit for outdoor bars, which tend to have high counters. As with all of the outdoor stools we offer, many of our 34-inch bar stools are treated to withstand the elements such as rain, snow, and sun.

Spectator Height Features

  • For shorter individuals, this height makes it easy to sit in the stool even though the 34 inch seat is higher than usual.
  • Strong footrest — Our metal footrests are strong enough to support your weight while you get in and out of these stools.
  • Arms provide support — You can add armrests for even more support when getting in and out of the stool. These give you something to grasp onto. Shorter people find arms on spectator bar stools to be especially helpful.
  • Easy to move — You might be concerned about the weight of the stools. Are they too heavy to easily move around? Not at all – you actually never have to lift the stools when you clean. Simply glue on stick-em felts so the stool will slide easily on any floor.
