5 Favorite Outdoor Bar Stools

Unleash the good times with these stylish outdoor chairs


October 20, 2021

The pool water is crystal clear and inviting. The drinks are cooling on ice. And from all around comes the smell of delicious party foods. The only thing missing is a place to sit down and take it all in. You need some proper outdoor bar stools.

A good outdoor bar stool stands up to the weather, offers long-term durability and – most importantly – looks and feels good. Here are five outdoor bar stools that we think you’ll be proud to place around your pool or patio.

UrbanMod Bar Stools

UrbanMod Bar Stools
These stools – a set of four – are stackable and feature a rustic gunmetal finish. They’re good for indoor and outdoor and can handle 330 pounds. They look modern and can last a lifetime. Amazon

We love the durability of these stools. Plus, they’re the perfect height. Unlike so many generic outdoor stools, they have a unique look but are still stackable and easily stored during bad weather.


Furmax Backless Stools

Red Furmax Backless Stools
These scratch-resistant stools come in six different finishes and feature an X-brace under the seat for added support. Amazon

Turn your patio into a bistro with these restaurant-style chairs. Thanks to their rubber feet, they’re safe for use indoors too. Added bonus: They come fully assembled.

Swivel Bar Stools

Brown Swivel Bar Stools
These 360-degree swivel chairs feature curved arms and a ventilated seat to keep you comfortable for hours outdoors. Amazon

These PHI VILLAS bar chairs are perfect for dining al fresco. Add the matching table to complete the cafe-style set. These weather- and rust-resistant chairs can hold up to 300 pounds.

Vintage Metal Chairs

2 Vintage Metal Chairs
These outdoor bar stools – delivered as a set of four – have a rust-proof iron base for a smooth swivel. Amazon

We think the softened look of the basket weave design gives this set some added class – not every outdoor party has to be a beer-and-wing blast. These are the perfect chairs for a relaxed evening on the patio, balcony or rooftop garden.


Folding Rattan Chairs

4 Folding Rattan Chairs
These four rattan chairs can be easily folded and stored but also are easy to transport, making them our pick for best portable chair as well. Amazon

The steel frame gives these folding chairs added strength while the wicker seat delivers unparalleled comfort. These chairs would work as well on the camping ground as on the back porch.
