Hola,

I found it in this context:

Features such as a mirrored glass wet bar, monitored alarm system, huge bathrooms and open kitchen create a comfortable home.

I want to know if wet is a type of glass or bar?

I appreciate your comments!

    Wet refers to the type of bar. A "wet bar" is a small counter that's used for mixing and serving alcoholic drinks. In this case the counter is made of glass and apparently has a mirror (above, behind or on it).

    Some translations suggestions:

    I would just go with "bar" and not sorry about the "wet" part since all that tells us is that it is for serving alcohol, which "bar" rather implies anyway.
