The Modern Home Bar
Our mission is to elevate the everyday drinking experience at home. We value the importance of connecting with friends and family over a drink, and think that you do too. Whether you drink craft cocktails or enjoy non-alcoholic beverages, we believe our vintage-inspired glass and barware will enhance your conversations with beautiful drinks created by you.
We aim to create innovative and sustainable designs that give a nod to barware of the past. The history of the cocktail hour is steeped in American tradition. We aim to bridge this rich history into the future of home entertaining by creating new American-made products that are heirloom-quality, handcrafted with care, and meant for years of use.
I'm Victoria Vergason, founder of The Modern Home Bar. I love to entertain and especially love the artistry behind crafting a good cocktail.
After having spent decades amassing a large collection of vintage glass and barware, in 2008, I opened a retail store, The Hour, in my home state of Virginia. Selling primarily vintage accoutrements for serving cocktails at home, I discovered many of my customers wanted drinkware that had the look and design sensibilities of vintage but that was more affordable and suited for today's lifestyle (meaning glasses that could go in the dishwasher!). It was important to me that, if I was going to start manufacturing my own goods, my products be made in America. Most of the vintage wares I sell at The Hour were produced in the United States by businesses that are no longer around. In 2017, I discovered a new technology that could digitally print designs on blank glassware (similar to the way designs were screen printed on blanks during the Mid Century). With a large inventory for inspiration, I began designing my own collections and, a year later, began manufacturing new products for the home and home bar.
I'm thrilled to offer you my new artisan glass and barware made in America. I believe a beautiful drink is a simple joy in life and one that is meant to be shared.
