The thing is, I don't really have a home BAR. I started collecting way before the home bar revival, and never got deeply into mixology because Jeff Berry was my neighbor and co-conspirator, so I never even tried.

So the artifacts are not kept in one rumpus-type room, the whole house is more of a Tiki museum. Recently, I had some fashion photographers over to use the house as a location for a magazine shoot. They did a "making of" video during it that really was beautifully shot. An exotic model always helps to enhance the collection, of course :

It'll come up as a "private video", so put in the password "Juco". I call it "Waking up on Tiki Island"



Yes, it is not an Exotica soundtrack, and she's not the classic Eurasian Exotica girl - but it works for me!

It's great to get a glimpse of the HQ & your holdings. Know anyone who could film a guided tour of the entire enclave? ;}

Very nice Sven. I can see how it might be difficult to mix drinks for the neighborhood when Jeff Berry lives next door

I agree, Sven you have the quintessential Tiki home museum. The video is delightful and leaves me wanting to see more of your fabulous collection. I never knew about Witco till you shared your love of it, I am still not a big fan, but because of you I appreciate it...I even got a Witco map this year for my dining room and am proud of it. It is great to see your Witco in your home, it helps me to be more appreciative of that kind of collecting. The difference between looking at TBOT and learning from that and posts about your home with pictures, is your love of display and how you relate items to each other. JMHO
