How do you fit everything so "Snugly" in the rack?

MA custom faceplates for each component it looks like.

Here is mine. Very simple compared to some of the BEAUTIFUL bars posted on this thread - but the beer tastes just as good.

Thanks schmidtwi,

I am still debating on it, thee will be some type of bar in there for entertaining, but it is a tough room with a lot of windows and doorways, I am already going to have to take out a slider and put a wall in its place am thinking that is where the bar will go.

Nice plans times like these I *really* wished we had a basement. That looks like a really nice layout you have there.

I wanted a British pub. I had an original pub sign for "The Bounty", so it became the "H.M.S. Bounty" pub.

I am just starting construction on the theater which will nearly adjoin. Possibly the Bounty Theater or the Odeon.

Thanks Scott. I think the theater will make a nice combo for an evening. I've started looking through your build thread - looks great. It's intimidating to be just starting this project and see how well others have done (and how much work it was).

Bars look great. Thanks for posting your pics. I needed some inspiration on what to do around the area that I am finishing. Great place to start with ideas is in this thread.

Strange-brew,

I spent a lot of time this weekend looking at your complete home theater build. Impressive!

I just wanted to toss another compliment your way. Love the simple and classy bar.

Haven't looked at this thread in years. Wow! Still amazed at some of what gets posted on here.

Kinda makes a guy's original plans change...somewhat. Been revamping the basement for ten years now. Maybe one day I'll finish my bar for good.

These are my (close to) finished pics of my bar. Still some trim work to do but not sure you're ever ''finished'' I went with a sports bar theme as we host alot of football parties.

While not my personal style, that's an amazing pub obts000! Feel like I need a pint and a pipe to site by that fire.

Abs777: "Here are a couple of mine."



So this is where Santa hangs out after Christmas! Looks like an awesome place to refresh after all those package deliveries.

I really like the backsplash tiles.

Wish I had half as much space for our little bar area.

Jeez - awesome bars guys... Can anyone tell me where to go to find out how much space I'll need to fit one of these things in my basement? How do I know if I have enough room? I'd ideally like something very small - a counter with 3 seats and a wet bar/small sink. Maybe a small refrigerator underneath the bar? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

EDIT: For example, in the pic - something like this looks perfect... anyone know the approximate dimensions of the red and orange lines (is there a "standard" for the depth of the counter and the sink area)?

Is your screen mounted directly in front of the bar? (but behind it, of course...you know what I mean)


Did someone help you with your acoustics?


I plan on keeping things out to a minimum. There will not be any glass shelves with bottles or glasses except at party time. If I have any rattles in the cabinets I'll put down that rubber shelf liner stuff.


The bar is actually pretty far removed from the screen and the subs. The rest of the room is probably over damped with Linacoustic floor to ceiling.





Didn't get any help with acoustics, but on my next build I will and I will also make the space dedicated. When I started this room I was going to do a 70 inch Sony RP and get a nice sectional.


After I had drywalled the space I started reading this forum and things got out of hand. You could actually call my build "the theater that ate my basement".

How far away is your bar ? Distance from the screen or row of seats? how much space between the counter and bar ???

I am trying to gauge space by your picture.
