This is a chronicle of my home bar, The Wrecked Wench, located in Winnetka, CA
So far, The Wrecked Wench consists of a small inside bar and a larger outside bar on the patio.





The Inside Bar:












The construction of the outside bar:
































I decided I wanted to wood burn some pirate ships into the top of the bar.










The finished ships










The bar wouldn't be complete without some awesome masks by Kirby!










I was very excited to add these custom chunk lights from Mandy and Nelsons Tiki Hut!






I am always working on adding more, so there will be more pics to come!
Thanks for checking it out!

This is a REALLY nice bar! I mean, THESE are really nice BARS!!!

I especially like the barrel shelf inside and, of course, the Wrecked Wench herself!

Thanks for posting. Very well done.

Wow! I'm impressed. I like the mix of Pirate/Nautical/Tiki. You really made it work.

Awesome pics BB! What's great about the Wrecked Wench is that every room is themed. Here's a couple more pics from my last visit:

Inside Bar


Pirate themed Bedroom




Haunted Mansion themed Dining Room






And part of the Star Wars Room



Last but not least, a Rumpus Room field trip to the Wrecked Wench! Photo by Tonga Tom.

Unbelievable! I'm blown away. In New England, hanging a metal star on the front of your house is considered creative decorating!

qh tiki, I used carbon paper to transfer my line drawings of the pirate ships to the bar top. It was my first real attempt at wood burning, so I am happy with how they came out.

Fantastic !! One thing however...

I think it's acceptable creative license to mix Tiki with Nautical and/or Pirate. There is one pop cultural "no no" that I did notice. You have a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man inside the Star Wars room !!



I expect this grave thematic error to be corrected before my upcoming visit.

Mr Stay Puft was Done by Industrial Light and Magic so he's Star Wars friendly + he's a Sailor so he's welcome in other parts of the house. He can stay!
