About

Our humble beginnings...

Originally started in 2001, we are a true homegrown business that was built and is staffed by people who use the products and know the product line, and each new product we carry is still hand selected by the original founder, Keith Winter, for uniqueness, function, quality, and value. We are still true to our roots, and you can rest assured that every dollar you spend with us goes to a family-owned company, our employees, and to our community; not to some mega corporation.

The HomeWetBar story starts in 2001 with a bar Keith built while in college at Oklahoma State University. Every weekend friends and family would come over and admire his redwood bar complete with a see-through bottle cap top, liquor cabinet, refrigerator, and fish tank in the front. Soon people were asking where he got the plans to build it and where they could get them. To this he simply replied, “There is no kit or plans. I made it from scratch.” After countless people asking about the plans, he decided to formally draw the plans up and open a small bar plans site on the internet to sell them; he named it HomeWetBar.com. Throughout the rest of his college career he sold the plans on the internet for extra spending money. A couple of years went by, and he graduated from college with dual degrees in Marketing and MIS, leaving Stillwater to pursue a management training program at a new job in Oklahoma City, OK.

After about a year of the management program, things were going well, and Keith had worked his way up into management while still earning extra money off selling bar plans. Then one evening, inspiration hit. If he could sell over a dozen of these bar plans to people every month, didn't they need accessories too? After all, they were building bars in their homes and would need supplies. He already knew more than most people about bar and wine items. Why couldn't he provide them with supplies too? So he went to work in his spare time, and a few months later in September of 2004, HomeWetBar.com was reborn as a full e-commerce site.

He started slow, only selling a few items out of his closet in his one-bedroom apartment, but he soon needed more space and moved into a two-bedroom apartment. Not long after that he had filled his new “warehouse” (second bedroom) with items, and all of the products and boxes soon started overflowing into his living room. Still only working on HomeWetBar.com part-time during the evening and early-morning hours, he realized he no longer could work 60+ hours a week at his main job and then spend his evenings and mornings working his second job at HomeWetBar.com. He knew he had to make a decision. So he took the leap and left his management position with his full-time employer and went to work on HomeWetBar.com full time. A few months later, he moved the business to a 2,800-sq. ft warehouse, where the business really took off. Shortly thereafter he found himself hiring new team members to help with orders, customer service, and the day-to-day operations, all the while adding hundreds of new products. Then, in 2008 HomeWetBar outgrew that warehouse and moved into a larger 7,500 sq ft. warehouse, but that location was quickly filled up as well.

Finally in 2012 a new facility was located. Based in the heart of Oklahoma City at 425 E Hill Street, our newly renovated facility spans 32,000 sq. ft. Originally built in the 1950s, it was renovated by us as part of on inner city urban renewal project. Renovations on the warehouse and office were completed in the fall of 2012 and it is where the business continues to grow today, fueled by the passion Keith and his team members have for finding new, innovative home entertaining products and their dedication to treating each customer like family.
