We had a great time, and the bar looks even more amazing in person! Thanks for hosting, Slacks!

Holy hell, slacks. I'd seen your progress pics over the years and now I am totally blown away by how beautiful your home bar is! Your pics during the construction really showcase the amount of work you put into your hideaway and your artistic eye to the attention to detail and placement of your collections. (that mural is AMAZING!). Totally awesome. Like everyone has said, there is so much tikiness that emanates from the pictures, I can only imagine how impressive it must be in person.

Very inspiring, to say the least!

Holy WOW!

What an amazing project. I've begun gathering ideas for a home bar project and yours is very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

The painting of the concrete floor is brilliant. Do you find the floor too cold (I'm assuming it's in the basement)?

Good question.

Sometimes, yes. My basement is a cooler space than the rest of the house. I get around it by wearing slippers. Guests have to suffer through it, or until they get to the bamboo rug. I've been considerin' having cheap guest slippers (Not flip flops) with a beach-y theme, but I haven't really found any that slip-on that would suit my vision yet.

Hey Folks. Just wanted to add a few photos of the new "A-Frame-like" entrance and the bamboo curtain that runs along the hallway to the entrance of the Kanaloa Lounge:


This is the same bamboo-print curtain the MadDogMike alerted me towards in another thread.





There's still a bunch o' work to be done on the "entrance experience" to the lounge (gawd... that sounds kinda lame), but these were two large projects towards getting to the goal.

Mahalla fer lookin'

Thanks J$!

True about the floor, but it's really not an issue for me. The basement is pretty well insulated. I find it's perfectly acceptable/livable, even in the dead of Winter. Stone (concrete) gets cold, y'know?

Holy moly, what a bar!

I'll just chime in and repeat what everyone has said. Magnificient work! I am in awe. Makes me want to strive to do 1/10 as good with our bar.

The entrance is great too! Love the A frame.
