When it comes to looks, this cooler table has it covered. There are many different outdoor drink tables available, but none that look quite like this one. It’s modern yet elegant, and adds class in an instant.
Made from a stylish brown panel made to look like resin wicker weave, it’s the perfect party accessory to brighten up just about any outdoor area.
The design is quite modern, and unless you look very closely, you would never suspect that it isn’t actually a woven table. The stylizing is quite elegant.
There is a small, quarter-sized metal disc at the top center of the table that is a bit aesthetically jarring. While it doesn’t affect functionality at all, it is a little bit odd. Thankfully it’s small, and can easily be covered up with a drink or tablecloth if preferred.
Whether you need a cocktail table or a cooler, the Keter Cool Bar Table is there at your service. Not only does it provide you with somewhere to mix and place your drinks, it gives you somewhere to keep the bottle cool for up to 12 hours.
And, with a cooler capacity of nearly 8 gallons, it’s big enough to store around 40 12oz cans and ice, or 4-5 wine bottles with ice.
To lock in the upright position, you twist the base once it is raised. Once locked, the bar works perfectly. But if forget to do this, you may experience some spilled drinks!
It can be closed with drinks in the cooler portion, but the tops of the bottles or cans must be below the lip of the Cool Bar.
The height of the cool bar is such that it’s about the height or an table when closed, and approximately counter height when opened.
Material and Build Quality
Although it has a rattan finish, this Keter Cool Bar is actually made from a very strong polypropylene resin panel, wrapped in the cylindrical shape. It’s not actually woven PE-wicker, but the finish gives the impression that it is.
This resin panel makes the cool bar extremely durable, and able to withstand even the harshest of weather. It won’t fade even when left in the sun. You’ll certainly get your money’s worth with this cooler table.
Unlike many other poolside drink tables out there, assembly of the Keter Cool Bar is pretty straightforward. It consists of just two parts and three screws.
Even those of who are not DIY minded should have no problem putting this one together!
Cleaning and Maintenance
The Keter Cool Bar’s been designed with a built in drainage plug to make life easier when cleaning up at the end of your gathering. Other than needing to empty it after a few hours, there really isn’t much that needs doing to keep this cool bar looking its best.
If for any reason it does become dirty, gently hose or wipe it down. No need to paint or otherwise maintain this resin bar.
The Bottom Line
You’ll have no problem impressing your guests with this ultimate patio cooler table on offer from Keter. It looks good, works well, and is very competitively priced. Having a cool bar on hand is so useful if you’re someone who likes to spend a lot of time outside!
There’s no need to keep going indoors to refill, and no need for an unsightly cooler. With the Keter Rattan Cool Bar you can do it from the comfort of your own backyard.
