Name:The Cannibal Lounge
Type:home-bar
Street:
City:
State:FL
Zip:
country:USA
Phone:
Status:operational

Description:
The Cannibal Lounge was built in 2008 and is our home bar where the lights are low, the exotica plays, our friends gather, and Don the Beachcomber is toasted to often. My own personal standard for this room was that it should look as though it could be a small private bar or dining room off the Mai-Kai. Were we successful? The room is fairly small, but sometimes good things really do come in small packages.

Entrance from the living room



































The back porch area outside the windows of the Cannibal Lounge is full of tropical plantings and is slowly getting the full Tiki treatment so that it becomes an extension of the indoor room. We've got big plans out there. More pictures as they come...

GatorRob,

I followed your thread on the build of the Cannibal Lounge and was always amazed by the quality and detail of construction (that lauhala stain was great).

The finished product is spectacular, I think you exceeded your goals. Wish I lived out there so I could come by and see it.

Looking forward to seeing more of the Phase II outdoors plans.

DC

Bang a gong, Get it on, Invite Bora Boris to the Cannibal Lounge, He'll bring some ice, Make him a drink, Bang that gong on the wall an annoying amount of times, Get it on. or something like that.

Looks Great!
Nice work Gator Rob!

Good things from small packages. Yeah I can swing with that!

Beautiful place there, GatorRob but holy smokes..the back porch will be incorporated too? An extension of the indoor room?

A cannibal retreat I should be so lucky to have at my disposal. Moody and inviting at the same time. I'm daydreaming just looking at the pics

Looking forward to the next round of progress pics. Thanks for sharing.
