Kitchen peninsula ideas, needs to be thin


Hi guys, so Im making a peninsula/eating bar in my kitchen and to save space so I am trying to not use cabinets under it. Im thinking just a 2x4 wall attached at one end to the existing wall then maybe a full width gable at the other end. Or maybe another 2x4 wall instead of the gable. I know it will have to be supported somehow or it would be pretty wobbly, just not sure the best idea.
Hope that all makes sense.
Anyone have any other ideas?

Gables in a kitchen seldom work.

When I say gable this is kind of what I was meaning, at the right end of the one in the picture. The only thing is I cant afford the room to have cabinets under the peninsula, just a 2x4 wall, so Im not sure what to do about the free standing end.
