Geeeeeeesus!!! Now that is some insane work. The floor, the whole bar area...just breath-taking. Love your attention to detail with the hinged bamboo socket...LOL. The lighting is wicked. I look forward to seeing more of this...it is very inspiring.

amazing, you have a great eye for detail, especially hiding that outlet behind the bamboo. it can take a lot of time and planning to get details like that just right. Most visitors would never even know what they're seeing (or not seeing), but those details elevate the quality of the whole room.
love the rock shelf and the lighting, too.
great work! i mean, great play!!

Everything looks great! I think the important question is... when do we get to see it in person??



Soon! Essentially, it's ready now for entertaining...but I still have 6 major things to do:

1) Finish the ceiling (along with adding all the lamps, floats, nets and shells).
2) Finish the shipwreck wood on the walls
3) Get the aquarium up and started
4) Finish the A-frame at the entrance
5) Make/change the support post into a palm tree
6) Add speakers

Let's face it, I'll never be DONE, but I'm not comfortable calling it even "ready for serious entertaining" until those 6 things are completed.

Thanks for all the kind feedback folks!

Anything I can do to help? I'm made of time these days. I'd feel better about drinking your hooch if I had some sweat equity.

Mahalo for the compliments folks!

Here's a few more progress shots:

Port Hole mirror on the door:


Horrible flash photo (so you can see the detail) of the "nautical wall" aquarium area:


Ahh...that's better:


No fish yet (hell, there's no water either)...but there's some (slow) progress being made.

To suggest that someone who has built his own bar from scratch like this (with details like hand-painted Tapa and self-made tile) would need someone else's Tiki Bar sign -which would obviously be redundant!- goes beyond thoughtless spamming and borders on an insult!

Very very nice work. Enjoying watching the progress on this one. I really like the aquarium, even without fish and water. That looks like a shot from Smuggler's Cove!

EDIT... By the way, good move on installing a sink and fridge. I had to have plumbing installed for my bar sink (kaaa-ching!!), but I don't regret it a bit. It goes from a simple mixing bar to a full functioning, working bar where you can do just about anything.

Holy Mother of TIKI GODS!!!! The ONLY thing i woulda done different is instead of a stainless bar sink I woulda gone with a brown porcelain with brass faucet/handles....but damn the volcanic lit up wall/shelves....my mouth is agape...i cant speak this is just too amazing....and me a self taught interiour designer and soon to be student...wow...you get #1 in my book of Tiki Bars...hands down!
