Great thread!, I accidentally stumbled upon this Today, as I had never seen this part of the forum before...Glad you did this Heynow, You have given me some ideas, on top of what was already swirling...
I have been searching the Net for months looking for Bar Plans, ideas, even Pics to steal ideas from, but it seems most you need to pay for, which I figure I have a pretty active imagination, so I should be able to come up with something, though they usually end up "evolving" as I go along
....it adds a little drama.
I have been collecting Bar stuff for Years now,(Glasses, Mugs, Towels, Neon Signs,ect) in the anticipation of having my very own "Sports Bar", and our addition is currently under way, and with any luck I can get started on my own custom built Bar in about a Month or so.<(Depends how fast my Contractor goes)
I have about a 20'x20' space to work with total, and want to do a "U" shaped Bar roughly 6x6x6 , and cost is now becoming a factor, as with the cost of the addition itself, roofing, siding, ect, I only have so much $ left to actually build the Bar with..I was figuring $1500.00 total budget.
I am fairly handy, though Wood working is not something I have allot of experience with, and I am lucky enough to have 2 great neighbors who are also handy, and have almost every Tool that I don't have already
, so we are always "borrowing" from eachother, between the 3 of us, I should end up with something decent......Anyways the anticipation especially now after finding this thread is going to get the better of me.
I have a fair amount of Football collectibles myself, not near as much as some of you, and overall my theme will mostly be a strong Hockey, followed closely by Football...Unfortunately I don't have room for a Pool Table, but I recently bought a Super Chexx Dome Hockey game, and will get a good Dart Board, so those who get knocked out early in the Texas Hold Em games, will have something to do while drinking those fine brews
I figured this Bar would be great for the Holidays, as we Host the major Holidays, and with the B-day Parties, it should come in handy....Cant wait to get started...I will post pics as I go along...Thanks again Heynow for such a great thread.
