Once again, I've been completely re-blown away by your bar. The overall feel of the place has one of the most put-together, cohesive vibes of any home bar I've seen on TC, and that says A LOT! I'd pinpoint something nice to say, but it all just looks so damn good...
With the entertaining, why don't you just choose one drink,make a mix prior to the party with all of the juices and sweeteners, and then add the alcohol per drink. I've done that any time I know that I'll be serving loads of people, and it always works out well. If they don't want the particular drink you're serving, tell them the ice chest is in the garage!

Thanks again Kahalakruzer...that IS saying a lot. You're invited to come by for a (one mixed tropical) drink anytime...just kidding. I might mix ya 2 or 3. BTW: That's a good idea about preparing some mix beforehand...and I've thought of doing that before, but I just didn't get around to it that night since I wasn't sure if I'd have more than 2 folks showing up...

Anyway, I want to thank the others too for your nice compliments. Brandomoai, just let me know when you 'Chuck boys plan to come down, we'll try to make it work.

Here's some other images that my friend gave to me from the other night (her camera trumps mine):




























Shanks fer Lookin'!

I had the great pleasure of seeing the Kanaloa Lounge for the first time this week. What a fabulous basement hideaway Slacks has crafted for himself. I took a few dozen photos - here are my favorites:



Slacks behind the bar.



Lava bar shelves.





Signature mug - the Kanaloa Cannibal (also the name of the bar's signature cocktail). This is an early glaze experiment.







Aquarium.

















Thanks for letting me stop by so late on a weeknight, Slacks. Next time I come over I'll take some shots with the tripod and do manual exposures (and we'll remember to close the back door).

That is so awesome. Inspires me to get to work on my bar. Your bar is one of the ones on this site that really got me started on my bar. I've got a long way to go though...

Nice! I love basement bars and yours is most excellent! I dig that abelum mask/lamp in your last pic post. Did you make it? Congratulations on your bar as a work of art. I have never been to Canada, but this would be on my wishlist of places to visit. Aloha

Wonderful! Terrific attention to details. I've been following your build out and it has turned out a gem. Looks to me like you have all the essential elements for a great Tiki bar. Hope you enjoy it for many years to come as I have mine. Aloha!
