Drinking glasses

Whether you’re entertaining guests or simply relaxing around the house on an evening, having the right drinking glasses and glassware helps you enjoy your cocktails or drinks as you and those around you wind down. You may be curled up in the recliner going over the day’s newspaper or outdoors laughing with friends under hanging lanterns - individual pieces and glassware sets add much not only to your bar but also to your kitchen ensemble. Shop west elm for a wide selection of modern and contemporary drinking glasses that complement your midcentury or modern style.


If occasional cocktails are on the menu yet you want glassware that works well for any occasion, consider a set of stemless glassware. Perfect for rocks drinks, shooters or iced tea and lemonade on a warm afternoon, these types of glasses look lovely on your kitchen table, on your deck or beside you on the veranda. There are quite a few stemless options to choose from as you’re considering. Gold- or metal-rimmed glassware adds opulence and a touch of elegance while geometrically shaped glassware definitely adds a modern vibe to your tabletop decor. Simple glassware is also an option. With no adornment, these glasses are suitable for your morning juice, evening soda or even for a Tom Collins or other mixed drink.


For cocktails, entertaining and parties, you’ll find a set of stemmed glassware perfect for quite a few occasions. As important as your flatware or dinnerware, having cocktail glasses on hand goes a long way to ensure your event is seamless, no matter how large or small. Opt for a wine glassware set if you need some wine glasses for parties and brunches or select a cocktail set that offers several different types of bar glasses. This type of set is ideal for small get-togethers and to have on hand at home, allowing you to make a martini, serve brandy up in a proper snifter or have a glass of white wine. Stemless glassware also comes complete with the set, allowing you glasses for juice or rocks drinks, and tumblers for nonalcoholic drinks or larger mixed drinks. It’s always smart to have a set of cocktail and regular drinking glasses that work for outdoor events a well, so look for a set or single pieces made of hard and durable plastic. Elegant enough to be used indoors yet strong enough for outdoor usage, these types of glasses are superb for backyard adventures and barbecues.
