Thanks! arriano, you never know... Working on finishing up to be part of the SD Home Bar Crawl in March.

WestADad, thanks. Added a red rug to go in your corner. It really ties the room together. I like hanging out there, too.

My wife had some of her friends over, and they were itching to see the bar. It was the first public viewing, and they liked it. It wasn't used for drinking (still damn cold in the garage at night, well, San Diego cold, brrr). Maya was stoked, whew. Here's a few photos....


(Dart board cabinet open, oops).

View from behind the bar:



Next up, menu drink testing.

Derek, thanks- your bar is a huge inspiration (and a whole lot better). At least the router work is getting better- look forward to making it to one of your classes, though! (soon?)

Jon, I'll have to build a bigger garage (though not a bad idea). That being said, Maya's already put the kibosh (sp?) on a kiln in the house.

Update: we had a few friends over for a road test. Printed up a menu for all four of us to choose from. I've been making drinks from the Grog Log & the Tiki+ app (which is pretty damn handy), and used a few from there.



Started off with Rosemary's Tiki, but then we switched to The Castaway. Maya's non-rum drink was The Yellow Boxer (from the app), which was pretty fantastic (tequila, galliano, lemon juice, orange juice).

Dreyfus was whining that he was left alone in the house, so we let him in. He was slightly disappointed, he thought there would be food for him to beg for.

Thanks, Chris.

The test run at the bar made me realize that the lowest shelf behind the bar (originally for booze, then taken over by mugs) had to be used as originally planned. I had all of the bottles on the return of the bar, which made looking for things tough. Unfortunately, there's STILL not enough room for the booze on the one shelf.

I'm always impressed how others design the layout of both their alcohol and mug collections. I've done some re-arranging, but will have to add more shelves. I'm thinking about a bar rail, but would rather have the bottles on display. Any thoughts/ feedback?

I also added a metal shelf next to the bar, which is used to hold some other pieces.

Here's the latest view behind the bar:

How hard would it be to make that bottom shelf two tiered ? Where the bottles in the back could be seen and still be accessible. Even a lower row one bottle deep right in front of that one, can't see what's below that shelf in the pic.


It's a good problem to have when you have a nice collection, maby one day I will have that problem ?

Been a while since I've posted- we've been enjoying the bar- and continuing to add to it (of course). A few pics:

Close up of one of the mug shelves:


View of the bar from the lounge side of the room:


different coloring...


Fleshing out the opposite ("Lounge") side of the room. The corner has a small shelf w/ bowls (including this one by Grog) as well as a small pendant collection....





More art on the walls, including this awesome painting I received from Dawn Frasier during the last Art Swap (right next to Henrik's work):



Tiki from Jason of Smokin' Tikis:



More framed art- including more beautiful Art Swap stuff, Eric October, and some more from Arriano!



Recent menu. I think less options makes for quicker decisions, especially after a few drinks! (For those keeping score, I model my Corn n' Oils after one I had at Rumba in Seattle (which I highly recommend), which uses a MUCH lighter rum than the "standard" Cruzan choice.




Muchos mahalos for the visit!

Always good to see the collection grow and the room flesh out. Looks very nice.

Greetings Tikiano,

Fantastic job on the bar! Hope the wife doesn't give you too much grief on the construction of your portion of paradise. We loved the appearance of Dreyfus! Nice collection of mugs. (The Munktiki Zombie hand Bob is awesome) Sad to see the Doug Horne missing a horn. I will ask him next time we go to the Tiki Marketplace if there are any extra horns laying around. I hope you don't mind if we copy your dartboard idea for our tiki bar in Chula Juanna. Again, great job.

Just looking fabulous and so glad you printed up a menu for your guests...that's high class hospitality.

Does Dreyfus get to listen to Tiki music in the lounge?

CHEERS...nice job!!!
