Backyard Bar

I designed the working side of the bar to include a central sink for ice storage, a speed rail, a large drawer for bottles, a door that conseals a bucket which drains the sink, two drawers for glass storage and a few small drawers for misc. items.

We enjoy entertaining and wanted a bar for our patio.  Every "residential" type bar just didn't work.  So after talking with bartender friends I desinged a bar to include all of the functional elements of a commercial bar.  The bar has stood up to the elements of south Florida.  I added rope lighting to both the front and working side of the bar that provides a nice ambiance in the late evening hours.
