View Full Version : Show us your bar....

I can match the numbers of bottles that some of you have bunkered (i'm a drinker not a collector) but wanted to show you where I do my sipping.

How about the other home bars out there?

12-21-2005, 17:33
Another look...

That is sweet. My great grandmother used to have a bar like that in her house but she died before I was too old to appreciate it. Anyway, very nice!

12-22-2005, 10:31
As I think about assembling one for myself...what are the features of a good bar? Wood and some mirrors seem nice. Comfortable, swiveling bar stools. Shelves that allow some of the better glassware and liquors to be displayed. Other thoughts?

12-22-2005, 11:02
Did you get the ruby slippers with that hour glass? (or even better, flying monkeys?)

12-23-2005, 17:45
Very nice but no TV for the game???

12-23-2005, 19:02
Very nice bar, I don't think I could convince my better half that I need something like this. By the way, do you time your pours by a flip of the table???


12-25-2005, 07:08
No, but we use it to time my next door neighbor's stories....

12-26-2005, 02:09
Beware the flying monkey plugs!

It's really not a bar...but it's where I keep my stash...It's a mess right now. I've added and added and added...Well hell, there ain't no more room http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

The most terrific part about this entire collection? Nearly all of it...probably about 80% were gifts, given to me http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif...That's so Cooooooool http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Some of this stuff, I won on ebay...Don't know if you can find it but there is a little hatchet---ebay purchase---Frickin' Carrie Nation's image on it...1901...AXE OF ALL NATIONS OUT OUT THE WHISKEY...BUN...LAURET STOVE & RANGES ART STOVE CO. DETROIT MICH.

Good grief, still blows me away that Prohibition actually happened. It changed the lives of my family forever. I look at some of the documents that I have...The F.G. Walker Distillery (owned by Jim Beam and my Pop Beam---great grandfather (Joseph L. Beam). Jim and Joe were first cousin's http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif...He (Pop Beam) owned 47 shares in this distillery before prohibition...at $100.00 a share. That's a tremendous amount of money back in those days...it was a fortune...All lost, because of Prohibition...

Unfortunately (read fortunately) I've done most of the damage myself. However, I do have a few like minded friends that enjoy quality tobacco and whiskies too so it's a lot of fun to make the bottles go away. Only to be replaced by new ones of course!

02-25-2006, 11:50
I have some new pics of my bar...

02-25-2006, 11:52

I picked it up in a Duty Free store on my way to my honeymoon on the Cayman Islands. I didn't know any better. It isn't bad - don't get me wrong - I just think I could have done better for the same price with a smaller label.

We have (or, at least, did the last time I remember noticing a month or so ago) a single bottle here in Middle Tennessee that may be one of the last bits of original stock from the store's opening in August 2001. It doesn't really fly of the shelves here:lol: . I guess we won't know if it's still available until when/if we try to reorder it after it sells.
