Hey guys - sorry for the slow reply. That is an ice maker. Makes 25 lbs of cocktail ice a day. It's pretty neat - it freezes sheets of ice and spits them out onto a heated metal grid and perfect little clear ice cubes fall through. The ice storage area holds 50 lbs of ice, but isn't refrigerated, so it is constantly melting. That means that your ice is fresh and that it's relatively "warm" ice, so that it melts just right when you make a cocktail.
Someone else asked about the cabinets - they're from IKEA. My father in law is a tile guy and made the granite counter from 18"x24" tiles.
Sigh - unfortunately we sold that house in April and had to leave the bar there. That was hard to give up. But we got several offers on the house within days of putting it up for sale and I think the basement helped quite a bit.
Right now my wife and I are checking out this thread for ideas for a keezer.
