I too was worried how the acoustics would be with all the wood but it sounds great. The fluted pieces help out and plus it's not a enclosed room.
As for taking out bedrooms 5 and 6 I could of made a dedicated H/T in the area I have my screen now and move the poker table into a bedroom. As I said before I wanted an area for the guys to hang out and watch the game and an area for just me and the wife to watch movies.
My 1st design idea I was going to try and make it look like any sports bar you see today with neon beer signs and huge posters on the wall. It took the builder 18 months to build and about a year before we finished the upstairs before we could work on the basement. With all that time to design and redesign we came up with the idea of doing a 40's- 50's style pub. We went with doing 2 walls all wood and kept the decor simple with old black and white baseball photos. Being from upstate New York and now living in Arizona you don't see many of the "old fashion" style bars that I love. So thanks for everyones comments about drinking single malt and smoking cigars. That's the exact feeling and look I was going for. If only now my wife would let me smoke cigars inside I'd be set
