While the world is a magnificent thing to look at, why settle for a normal globe in your home when you can have one that is much more than just a blue and green representation of our planet.
It used to be the only globes that were out on the market were the ones you saw in the classroom. While they were a great way to learn about the geography of the world, they were a little boring.
Since those days, world globes have become more of a décor item in homes, and with that change in their purpose, there are a new creative globes for sale. Many of them are part globe, part entertainment venue.
It may be the thought of a bunch of men sipping a drink talking about their world travels that led to the trend, but it seems globes are now very popular as bar accessories. Many have been created to be a part of a bar, if not a bar in themselves.
Want a unique decanter, you can study the countries of the world as your drink pours from some of the new world globe serving containers. They even have a spout that pours the drink from the bottom of the world while you look at the liquid level drop from the clear planet. Just don’t get too enthralled in watching the earth drain or you may overflow your glass.
Other world globe bar accents hold the tools of the trade for running a bar. While you can look at the world and appreciate the continents, when you pop the top you will find all the items you need to mix up the drinks of the world. From a corkscrew for fine wines from France, to a cocktail shaker to make a Mexican margarita, all the tools you need are neatly nestled inside the globe until you are ready for them.
Want to take it one step further? How about a world globe that is a bar in itself? You can get world globes that are full bar sets. The top lifts up and inside is enough area to store 12 glasses and four bottles. What a way to get a party going. With additional storage down below in the base, in case you need more bottles. Many of these bars come with old world looks – marble or wood legs. And what looks like it’s a base on some of them is actually a refrigerator so your glasses ad bottles are always cool. The top splits open in two, to show a refrigerated area inside.
While many world globe bars are floor models and freestanding bars, there are some that are a little bit smaller. These are tabletop models with a refrigerator below the globe. You can flip the globe to the side to show off the prize beneath the base. You can even decide which part you would like to have cooler. Some have the globe portion as the hidden refrigerator, others keep that in the compartment beneath the turning world.
