For the wet bar Run 12-2 to the 2-20 amp receptacles below counter With Pig tails, to the 2 20-amp GFCI recept. above counter on either side of sink

whatcha all think?
No need for a 20 amp gfci just use a 15 amp one. Just remember if you supply the bathroom with 20 amp circuit for both lights, fan and the gfci receptacle you can't extend it outside the bathroom by nec code.

Everything else looks fine to me be sure to get a electrical box that is large enough to accomodate the gfci as they are a bit more cumbersome than regular receptacles.

It's my understanding that I wouldn't be running anything outside of the bath with the use of the "mini." One circuit for the bath and one for the wet bar coming from one "mini."

By the way Thanks to everyone who has replied. This is my first home and first time doing anything electrical like this. I can't afford an professional to come in. and the wife is on my a** about getting the basement done HAHA.

Sorry I keep forgetting that some manufacturers call a tandem breaker two pole even though it connects to one bus stab. I think that is very confusing. A two pole or double pole circuit breaker is like this .... and connects to 2 bus stabs on opposite hot legs to provide for 240 volts or a mwbc.
