Don't make this decision too quickly. Buying barstools is a delicate process that will require quite a bit of thought, especially if you plan to choose bar stools that will go along well with your existing décor. There are types of stools that have backs if you so desire, but most people choose to avoid these because when you have a back, it is difficult to store the stool under the counter. In addition to that it can make a room seem more crowded than it actually is.
If you choose a swivelling stool you will need to determine exactly how far it is going to swivel. You could go for 180 degrees, or you could opt to have it spin for the full 360. This isn't always an easy decision, though giving the full 360 can sometimes be a bit bothersome. It is not unheard of for a swivel stool to become loose and send someone spinning. Is it likely? No, but that doesn't mean it won't happen. When you are running a bar you need to prepare for the unexpected and take pre-emptive action.
Make sure your stools are weighted! Whether you have red bar stools or pink bar stools, keeping them weighted is very important. The problem with light stools is that they tend to slide around when the floor gets wet, and this is also true if you are using multi-legged stools. Naturally stools with a single, round bases will be more susceptible to this scientific force, and many people will compensate by having rubber pads or suction cups installed on the bottom of the bar stool. In most cases the bar stool already come outfitted with these, so there is no need to worry.
