Bought a CoolBar at Costco


It is an affordable all in one accessory for outdoor entertaining. It’s a cooler, a coffee table and party table for my patio. 42 regular cans fit inside the cooler.

It comes with two practical drainage features: a small hole at the center of the flat surface plus a drain plug inside the cooler. You can raise the flat surface to leave the cooler always open, if you want. The flat surface becomes a nice area to fill up your glass as you take out the wine bottles from the cooler.

I bought it at Costco for $69.99 CAD. I think it is a good product for the price. My husband noted that he wishes for more sturdiness when the surface is raised (party table mode). The locking mechanism stays well in place but the surface is shaky. This is often the case with a surface that rises up and down. I wanted it because I like the concept. Or it was simply because I am craving for summer. We will know by the end of the summer who was right.

I did not find it on the Web site but ask for Costco article # 177561. By the way, I bought it in Canada.
