We may be approaching the final days of London Cocktail Week, but there is no reason why happy hour needs to end here. Instead, the celebration has provoked us to upgrade our home bars – from the finest examples currently on the market. 

From the center of the mixology festival in London to the shores of Sydney – these five listings are reshaping our home bar ideas – just in time for party season.
