    firstly apologise if this has been covered, did a search and found nothing.

    in the centre of my gamesroom have this australian built rotary merchandiser circa 1940.

    full of local memorabilia, have had some massive nights standing around this

    Keeping with the non traditional bar theme, mine is made out of the side of an Atari Star Wars arcade cabinet.

    Ha! I would never destroy a good one! Many years ago my buddy had one that was basically falling apart (just the cabinet). I took the sides and the rest was rotted away and burned.

    Here is a pic of my bar in the basement. It came in the house when we bought it, directly behind this picture is the pool table and to the left are the pinball machines, there is also a half circle on the left and tv attached to wall. seats about 8-10 easily.

    We use this bar a lot, practically every weekend. What makes it a good home bar is the sink, with a glass rinser and small dishwasher, mini fridge, and kegerator. The only thing we are missing is an ice machine. I built all the shelves out of wood and pipe for an industrial look and am looking to reskinning the front of the bar to a barnwood and gas pipe footing.

    LOL, the ‘search the forum’ form should be directly linked to TheLaw. He’s like the resident librarian in here. He always seems to know what’s been discussed and where to find it

    My bar is my most holiest of man-places where I dwell and wallow in my manness, drinking fine spirits and cocktails while listening to your better music, dining on delicious delectables, and perusing my basement man-hobbies. We bought this house in 2010. Built in 1953. And the bar was hand built by the prior owner in the 60s or 70s. Is it high end? No. Modern? No. Fine materials? No. Is it manly? Yes, my friends. Yes. Here it is in all its wood-paneled manly glory.

    Mine has evolved a bit since these pics. We don't really use it. It's more of a place to display some of my stuff. We also have an antique backbar upstairs.

    I built my bar top to display some of my Atari 2600 carts, it’s a great way to reminisce. Amazing how it brings back memories for so many people.

    Cool!

    I never knew they made Tomb Raider for the 2600.

    Not a huge bar, but big enough. We put backsplash tiles of EM games we have/had/liked to give it some pinball personality.

    Agreed. That backsplash is fantastic. I need to incorporate more pinball in mine.

    Modest Bar. Bartop is 80s Topps Movie Trading Cards. I hope the next owner approves when it’s time for more space for pins and a bigger place.
