Wet Bar Circuits


Hi All, Im planning on building a wet bar in a room on the side of my house. I was wondering if its okay to have '3 Countertop GFCI outlets, One mini fridge, one wine cooler, and a outlet for cable box/av receiver dvd player' all one 20 amp circuit with 12/2 wire?

And as for lighting there is already a ceiling box which im going to use for the pendant lights above the bar overhang. But i need to add another 4 recess lights, should i run a new circuit for them or just branch off from that one ceiling box in that room?

Thanks

assuming it's a regular room I don't see an issue however practically i would run another circuit because there's a good chance your going to need it.

depends on what the total load as it is... but probably
It's about doing better than "wondering if its okay"
