14 Unsurpassed Party Themes For Social Bars

I know a lot of people who love to go out and drink with friends, but get bored after going to the same bar where everyone just sits at a table or the bar itself.

So I’ve started looking around for places that offer some kind of social activity in addition to drinks. You can still have fun catching up with your friends while also having something novel and interesting to do together. Here are some fun bar party themes that have all the vibes and fun.

Never Fear Craft Beer

Craft beer is a hot trend right now, and it’s not going anywhere. It’s even more popular than craft wine these days, so if you’re thinking of serving something else at your next party, think again.

Espionage Nights

The best part about an espionage night is that it can be customized to fit almost any bar or club. You can set up mock spy missions where people will have to solve puzzles or break codes in order to find out what their next mission is or just offer a variety of interesting puzzles and games.

Lego Build Night

Everyone loves Legos, right? They’re fun to build and even more fun to destroy. A Lego night is the perfect way for your guests to get creative and get their hands dirty.

Try making a bar made out of Legos. You can also have different types of alcohol poured into various colored blocks.

Have an adult version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey — with Legos! Instead of using tails, use little Lego men or cars and have everyone try their best to stick them onto a giant picture frame mounted on the wall (or table). The person who sticks theirs closest wins!

At the very least, place Lego sets around your space for people to build whatever they want. Vote on the best creation and award the winner with a Lego-themed prize!


Karaoke is an excellent way to get people interacting and singing. In addition, it’s a great way to drink. But the best part of karaoke is that it’s a great way to have fun!

Video Game Nights

Many bars already have large screens that are ideal for this purpose. Just make sure you can plug your console into it so that people can see the action clearly, and then promote your event with some catchy graphics or images of iconic game characters like Mario or Sonic.


Trivia is a great party theme for bars because it’s a game of knowledge and strategy that can get patrons interacting with each other. Trivia can be played as an individual or team activity, with players competing against one another or working together to answer questions. You can also play trivia in a variety of formats, such as true/false questions or fill-in-the-blank.

Under the Sea

A sea themed party is a great idea for your social bar. It’s easy to get started, serve some seafood appetizers like shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, and oysters. Find some fun sea creature decorations and you’re in business!

May the Force Be With You

Star Wars themes are a popular choice for social bars because they are easy to pull off and everyone likes them! There are plenty of characters that people can relate to—whether they’re heroes or villains—and there are many different scenes from different movies that can inspire your theme.

The most obvious way to set up a Star Wars theme is by hanging lightsabers all over your bar. You can also hang pictures of Darth Vader and other characters from the series, as well as posters with quotes from some of the films’ most memorable lines (like “May the force be with you”).

Bring Out the Dead

If you’re looking for a theme that is sure to get your guests talking, nothing beats the classic zombie apocalypse. This theme has been a perennial favorite in recent years and is sure to be a hit at your next bar party.

DIY Mixology

An interactive-themed party allows the guests to come and make their own cocktail or craft a special dish using ingredients and garnishes from the bar. This is a great way to get people involved in your event and make them feel welcome. It can also be a good opportunity for you to show off your skills as a bartender or chef as well as give them an opportunity to learn something new.

Guess That Tune

Is your bar full of music lovers? If so, you can give them a fun game to play with some of their favorite songs. You can pick songs that are familiar to the crowd, like “Livin’ On A Prayer” by Bon Jovi or “Let It Go” from Frozen. Or something they might not have heard in years but still reminds them of its popularity at the time.

The Big Cheese

A cheese-themed party allows your guests to sample a wide variety of cheeses and maybe become cheesemongers! Expose guests to new flavors from various animal’s milk, like goats or sheep.

Classic Cocktail Party

A classic cocktail party is another option for those who want to show off their bartending skills or just enjoy good drinks with friends! There are many different types of classic cocktails that all taste delicious and every girl likes to have an opportunity to show off her favorite LBD or cocktail dress.


A wine tasting is an excellent way to raise your bar’s profile while offering something unique, as well as being educational. Its also a good way of getting people in the door and can help you meet new customers who might not have been your typical patron.


As you can see, there are plenty of ways to add some excitement to your bar’s party theme. It all depends on what kind of event you’re looking for and how much money you want to spend. When choosing a theme, make sure that it fits with your business model and the overall atmosphere at your establishment. As always, be sure to ask questions or let us know how we can help!
