I don't know about that. How big is your waist and then add 10 inches? I'd have to ask how old are you? If you're a youngster you might want to consider that you might add 10 inches all by yourself as you get older and consume them cheeseburgers. You wouldn't want to grow out of your bar now would you? It's not like you can loosen your belt a notch.

If you expect any cocktail seductions to lead to late night carnal activity behind your tiki bar, add another two feet of clearance space. Add more if you are kinkier than most.

And make sure you have enough crushed ice, to cool things down afterwards.

Leave room to grow. You may decide that your bar needs it's mug or exotic booze collection displayed on those shelves your not building....Yet. The bar is just the bones, It will flesh itself out over time and use and evolve into something you would have never envisioned at the onset. Bars tend to collect things all on their own.

This has to be one of my favorite posts in the past month or so!


Seriously, though...
Try putting up some plywood on sawhorses and see how much room you would need, you could easily move them in and out... maybe that would help, no?

Does anyone else see where this conversation is heading?

Oh, and consider this my contribution to getting it there faster.....

My folks made sure there was a good four feet of clearance behind their home bar's back ledge and the wall. And that was a moveable bar, so I'd swear it kept inching out further over the years.

Maybe allow about five feet or so, in case you change your mind about the shelves?

I watch a lot of the home improvement shows. I saw an episode of "This Old House" where the owner wasn't sure how the kitchen cabinets were going to be arranged. They took big cardboard boxes and made mock ups of the cabinets and the owner was surprised after seeing them in 3D and in the space and went a different direction. Might be a good idea for deciding where to place the bar and how much room to leave behind the bar. Just one word of caution. If you do make a cardboard mock up to test locations, size, placement, etc. just don't test out any carnal maneuvers on the cardboard. I'm sure the cardboard bar won't be able to stand up to the task.
