The Google “Cool Bar” was the talk of the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention. Google supplied a complimentary iced coffee service for their guests to enjoy while trying to beat the heat in Tampa and Charlotte.

However, coffee bars aren’t just a hit at national conventions, they have recently been popular at smaller social events as well.

Coffee bars are a perfect touch for a baby shower brunch or a late night coffee service after a rehearsal dinner. You can even host a gathering centered around coffee such as this Kenyan Coffee Tasting featured below.

The idea of a coffee (or even hot chocolate!) bar can be tweaked so many ways to create a fun, tasty touch to any event!
