Sweet! I can almost hear the surf.

Whatever anyone tells you about building a bar - build it bigger. I built an outdoor bar that seats 10, and it is too small. But I have all winter to plan "phase 2."

Yes it is a gas table. I had captions for all my pics but I had to use Photobucket to transfer the pics. So Hours of work was wasted and captions were lost. I think i will try to add captions in a while.

Great bar. Big and roomy. Now alll you need is those one-of-a-kind items that you can only get when you have your finger on the pulse of TikiCentral. Or hand make it.

I would like to try and carve a TIKI Man. I made the whole TIKI Bar myself. The table of course so that it was the perfect hieght for the chairs. The TV Bar was an old Waterbed headboard. Took the mirror out and put a TV in the back of.Put some old closet doors on to keep it safe. As well as giving it that TIKI Charm. The roof is made from Canvas.

Yes! Very nice!

I agree, looks like you are somewhere in Florida. I can tell from your plants and the general Key-West feel of a few of your items in there.

The table is awesome with the fire in the middle. Can you put plants in there for the warmer months?

The headboard TV holder is an excellent repurposing of furniture. You can show Endless Summer and all of the other great surf movies while entertaining. I can't tell if that is also serving as your bar back, or did I miss something in the photos.....

So now that you are done with the major work, when is the Grand (re)Opening party?

Florida would be right. I have lots of plants in here. Getting some more Orchids but just want to start little first because they are expensive. The room seats 9 pepole comfortably with room for another 5 to stand. I would like to start a TIKI MUG collection. I will be putting a shelf around the inside perimeter of the roof for them. The TV is on the inside of another room just beside the Lounge so the bar is not a pass through.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say earlier... Welcome to Tiki Central.

Whereabouts in Florida? Can you leave the Orchids out all year?

If you can leave them out all year, or keep them in pots to bring in when the weather gets cold, what you do is buy the 'scratch-and-dent' orchids from Home Depot. The flowers are usually spent and the things are half dead, but you can get them for a few buck each. Plus, it is kind of fun when they do flower again because it is like a little surprise for the lounge.

I have some pictures around here somewhere of some of the orchids, I'll have to find them and share.....
