SWEET Bar, that is the foundation on which one hell of a good tiki lounge could arise!

Anyone that needs a bar and that lives in the area would be crazy not to grab that for $400. A little work and that bar will be outstanding.

It sounds like something I'd be really intersted in, but the pics aren't appearing. Is it too late? I've never used craigslist. I guess I'll google around.

Dang. It was easy enough to find craigslist, but searches for "tiki bar" and "tiki" didn't turn up anything.

Speaking of cool finds on Craigslist...Here's a cool tiki table up for grabs in the San Fran bay area. I really wanted it and was ready to buy it this aft but at lunchtime my dog jumped thru a plate glass window while chasing after a fly...(yep, he, sPoT!, is OK but had to have some expensive stitches and staples today...not to mention the cost of replacing the window...so therefore, this cool tiki table is somewhat cost-prohibitive to me now. DAMN! Heck it's only 100.00! I really really hope sPoT! killed that fly. Hopefully one of you will like the table as much as I and can get it and enjoy it...and I will enjoy it vicariously thru you! Here's the link
http://www.craigslist.org/sby/fur/36967917.html
If the link no worky go to craigslist.com, San Francisco, and type 'polynesian' as a search term. Good luck all. AND if anyone knows anything about this table...who made it, where its from, what its worth...etc, (with my luck, it's worth a miiiiiiiiillion dollars$$$$...) please post and let me know what I'm missing. Many cheers to you all, K

Hi,

The Craig's List posting for the Bar was made be my wife and I. We really appreciate the interest this forum is generating. So I thought I would pop and leave our links, and yes the bar is still available. We are also selling the Bamboo Sofa and Chairs.

printed pix for monkeyskull ~ showed him at The Islands.. i think the owner pulled the ad, so that i'd have first chance at it. (sending you the pix via email!)

have emailed the owner, and said you'd email, monkeyskull!

argh, she raised the price a bit.. to 500

Clearly, that bar was made by the same people who made my bar. Mine is a different shape, but, it came with the same cabinetry, same stools, same wood for the top (I stained mine), Same foot rail and trim and same rattan construction. It would rule if I put these two together and made a flip up entrance between them. does anyone know where it came from?


Mahalo,
Al

I dropped by the seller's house to check out the bar. The pictures don't reveal how badly in need of refinishing it is, but it's still a really swell piece. The only problem is that I think it's to big for me to get where I need it. I took a bunch of measurements and tomorrow I'll try and figure out if there's any way I can squeeze it into my basement. (The owner says it took 5 guys to get it into his place, and he doesn't have the narrow basement entryway that I have leading into my door.)

The owners have other tiki stuff they are selling too -- serving trays, an elaborate serving dish, a large wooden tiki mask, etc. I didn't follow up much on the details, as the bar was my main interest and it would have pretty much maxed out my tiki budget for a while.

As I was late, I didn't have time to follow through on my promise to dogbytes to take pix of the other stuff. But the owners are nice folks and would probably happily answer questions.

Cheers,
monkeyskull
