Please help with home theater setup/furniture placement

Hey guys I have been wanting a home theater for awhile now and the time has finally come. I want to convert one of my basement rooms into a home theater. We just bought this house and the previous owners already have the room wired for surround sound and all the electrical is done. I am just having trouble deciding the best way to set up the seating, bar, ect. The room is 13ft by 23ft 9". I have a pretty much everything I need for the home cinema I think.

Here is what I have: 125" electric screen, epson projector, ceiling mount, 5.1 sony surround sound, 6' by 5' platform with LEDs, 2' by 6'7" bar with LEDs, and 2 couches.

What is the best way to lay this room out? Where should I put the couches?

This is how I originally planned it out and set it up. There is a hallway behind the bar that goes to a bathroom and closet. The door to the left is where you come into the room from another room in the basement.

I would push the bar to the other side, then when you enter the door you can turn right.

We are getting new carpet put down in a couple weeks so I'm hoping to get everything figured out before then. If i move the bar over any more I will have to add more tile. Not a big deal, but I want to do it before the new carpet goes in. Here a few pics with the bar moved over and the old carpet. There's enough room to walk on either side of the bar.
