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.
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).
Scott Erie ------------------------ Let's all just admit it was my fault and then we can move on.
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)?
How do you minimize sound reflections? What about buzzing and rattling of dishes etc on the bar shelves from the LFE? I am wondering if that will be a problem in my friends bar, and how I can minimize it.
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 ???
