Installing kitchen sink


I would like to install a kitchen sink and couple of cabinets to convert this area into a wet bar.
Question is to which wall ?

On the other side of the counter top wall is a bathroom sink. Installing the sink to the shared wall (by removing the current counter top) is easy since the drain line is right behind the wall. Installing the sink underneath the window wall (external wall) involves more work hence expensive.

I heard that kitchen sinks should be installed underneath the window. Is that right ? Should I installing the kitchen sink underneath the window if it is going to expensive. Please suggest.

It's just a wet bar, not a full kitchen. Install the sink wherever it will you want it.

The only reason for putting a kitchen sink under a window is appearance and it makes for a slightly more enjoyable dishwashing experience looking out in the yard as opposed to a blank wall. Other than that no reason. Put the bar and sink where you already have the plumbing
