Hemingway was a fascinating character, but the more I learned about him the less I was enamored



Not to derail this thread but yes much of Hemmingway's life (alcoholism, depression, paranoia & suicide) was tragic - much of which I found out following reading '...And A Bottle Of Rum'.

Im liking the circular shelves & bamboo edged cabinets people have.

Whoa, Pikeys Dog! Im going to PM you about where you got all those mugs from in the UK!

AdOrAdam, You can order those mugs and other goodies from the Cheeky Tiki website.
http://www.cheekytiki.com
Bespoke Barware is their sister company and they have even more mugs. http://www.bespokebarware.com
It's a UK company so shipping won't be insanely expensive.

I am using a shelf I made out of wood and bamboo. Works pretty well though it is full already, and I've only just begun collecting mugs! In process of building another one, and I'm really liking those LED rope lights... Might have to incorporate that into something.

When I put together the display section of my bar, I did not want to do the standard "mug shot" lineup. A long line of mugs, side by side in a row renders them invisible. One looks like the others to most people.

I thought about museum displays. So I used very deep shelves and grouped the pieces by location, and I used risers to give more depth and interest. I incorporated the swizzles, postcards and other items as well to make these layered groupings.





A slight exception here as I used a floater shelf, but, it is only Hawaiian Village Tampa mugs hung under the menus.



It also depends on your collection. I decided to make my collecting very focused on certain locations. That allowed me to do the displays the way I have. But you could do something similar with a different theme.

Swanky, Pikey's Dog and PolyPop (who hasn't posted) -- you 3 guys have the most amazing displays!

Swanky really love the way you have everything grouped together...really dynamic looking!

Swanky, what a beautiful collection you have. I really like how you have mostly vintage pieces with just a few new ones incorporated. Your lighting is also done very nicely.

Agree, Swanky, very nice collection and display. The lighting adds great mood, and I really like the mixing of swizzles, cards, etc. to add interest. It's like a museum!

If i'm ever fortunate enough to own my own place i'll definitely make a dedicated Tiki room but until then all my mugs are displayed on black shelving i made myself, except for the bottom half of the cabinet below which i picked up from a thrift store.

Ikea shelves:

more Ikea shelves:

Bamboo hut shelving from "Pad Parties: The Guide to Ultra-Entertaining":

and storage of duplicates in an old fridge:

Unfortunately everything's cramped (3 deep in places), but there's no walls for more units since 3 walls are all windows.
For a large party the ones in the fridge are used and once emptied it holds the beer/juice/etc.
