I put a lot of over time in this bar! I had to build it in two weeks with only 2 helpers.There was a lot of really nice mahogany that got faux finished!Big let down when you put a lot of time and effort into something with some really nice wood and they faux it!some people are lame!

Of course it is a pity that the mahogany got faux finished.

Beautiful bar

I used to wonder how any one could make money owning a “bar” until I met a good friends boyfriend who owns part of 4 bars which are only open 3 nights a week.

1000 people/patrons come to each bar a night and its a 20 dollar cover charge and an additional 20 dollar coat check…...thats 40×1000 x 4 bars….............and that doesnt include booze sales…..........the math made me wonder why I do, what I do.

This is a great looking bar…..........fantastic work! I can’t believe they covered it up with a faux finish, some people don’t know what they got when they got it,.......... huh.
