So, we started out with our version of a tiki/Caribbean/coastal bar, much like our favorite bars in our favorite places. It grew and got cramped. I know it's not "pure tiki" but it was our little hole-in-the-wall, literally.

Tiki65 gives the thumbs up.







That's all about to change. Stay tuned. We're expanding the bar and moving it across the basement. 600 square feet to be exact. Stay tuned for pictures. The contractors come in sometime in the next couple of weeks to install flooring and a sink and I'll be posting progress pictures. We're moving toward more of a midcentury/traditional style. We've been collecting furniture, parts (like a two-door, slide-top beer cooler) and decor to begin. Any who were at Hukilau saw the Adrian Pearsall couch that was part of the Moderna Muerte display. That's now in our basement and is just the beginning, to go with our new-to-us Mai Kai chairs. Can't wait until we get this show on the road!

Looks like a cozy and inviting place, Phinz! If I had a place like that, I would probably never leave my house!

It has begun...







Dismantling the old bar area to move the bar to the new area.





Bar placed in its approximate location.





Everything moved to the wood-floored side for carpet repair in the old bar area.

Trader Scott, your place was already GRRRRREAT! But now that you've expanded it's looking like it will be spectacular! The bar area already looks great!

Wow - it's HUGE!!!

You've got to include a stage. How about a bowling alley too while you're at it?

I'll be watching this thread with interest.

Best wishes,
CN

Base of the bar is in.



Bar area is a little over 13' long by about 10' deep. Enough to get two bartenders (and maybe even three) behind the bar without them tripping over each other.

Cooler is in place (excuse the stuff stacked on top). Dishwasher will be modified to blend in once we get to the decorating/modifying stage.

[/img]

A bit of deconstruction to fix some minor things.



Beginning to build the sidebar/prep counter top with variegated strand bamboo flooring.





Starting the puzzle that is the sidebar/prep area.





Mrs. Tiki 65 gives a cheers. Countertop is assembled. Tomorrow it will be pinned and glued in place, then we start on the main bartop.



And Tiki 65 is wiped out after a 20 hour day (he was up at 5 for work and then came over for tiki bar assembly)

Laying in and gluing/toenailing the sidebar lower top.





Bar faced with OSB as subsurface for final overlay.



Note lights and plugs on the inside of the bar.



Bartop base test fit.





Visualizing the next stage of bar surfacing.



The LED lights go up into a groove routed on the underside of the bartop.
