I cant compete with rvklein, but here it is. All built from scratch by yours truly from a semi unfinished space. Total cost of initial build was @$5k. Bar itself cost about $2k. Since these pics were taken, I've moved my taps up to a tower, installed a bar sink and drip tray draining to it, and lit the thing. I had a Pats Flying Elvis and edging etched into the mirror, and I purchased a new sofa. These pics were immediately after the build, so some of this stuff was still waiting to happen at the time.

A stripper pole is a good idea, but wood may not be the best material for long term use.

+1

There are some places you really don't want to get a sliver.

Right?

I covered the support column with a wrap instead of building it in.

Like I said, it is what it is, but I like it and it was in my budget.

Looks good!!

Did it cost must to have the mirror etched? How did you find a place to do it? I would like to do that on my bar build but need to get my logo done.

It wasn't cheap. But not bad considering what I've heard elsewhere. Took it to a local glass shop. Just over $200 for the etching. I think they sent it out.
