Super Bar?

super bar glassIt’s a bird, it’s a plane! No wait, it’s a BAR!  There were no other words I could come up except for the obvious, “man that’s one Super Bar!” If you’ve logged into the gallery lately, you may have seen photos of this bar glowing like Kryptonite.

Something about the beautiful laser like colors just drew me in and when I magnified the photos I was amazed at the awesome job completed by site member Mike S.

Super Nice!

While everyone has done equally excellent work. Mike’s bar is hands down one of the nicest looking bar projects I’ve seen in some time. It’s the whole package!

Start with the the bar itself featuring Chicago arm rail and the incredible copper bar top.  (I hope Mike follows up to clue us in on how he created that awesome copper patina, liver of sulfur perhaps?) Then the perfectly aligned bar & bar back combo (part of the EHBP-10 forum topic) the trim detail and the coup de gras, the LED bar lighting.

Electric Lights:

I’m not sure if multi-color LEDs were used (my PS tweaking had bumped the photo colors out a bit) but they look great! The electric blue LED light reflection on the work space counter is amazing. LED lights create a more coherent and pure color of light than incandescent of fluorescent bulbs. It simply looks amazing.

So, Mike’s Super Bar is our April BOM (bar of the month – for which I need to make plaques).  Take a look for yourself! Enjoy!

The project combines the EHBP-09 45 degree corner bar project with the EHBP-11 bar back. Mike appears to have built the shelf lighting coves to light the objects on the shelve from the back. Many people decide to skip that part because of the opaque plexi cost. It’s worth the extra effort and price. Mike clarifies in the comments below.

  1. looks great mikeabike314!! Im going to build the same bar, and the empty wall behind the bar l im putting in a window so can serve cocktails from the inside on a outdoor bar area. I will be able to host more people this way. The evenings here in Palm Springs are amazing

  2. Thanks! That’s always great to hear, but your workmanship speaks for itself. Feel free to post more pics!

  3. the website was an outstanding value for $20

  4. Thanks for the reply Mike! That’s a great way to save money since plexiglass is not cheap. The LED lights give it a cool yet eerie electric glow, I love it! One of the best completed projects I’ve seen in a long time! Great job!

  5. Sorry for the delay in responding, I didn’t realize I had gotten this write-up. I did use multicolor LED lighting. However, I did not use the plexiglass. Instead, I mounted the LEDs in the crown molding. Was able to get the same effect. Also, with the lower ceiling, this approach didn’t tie up the space the plexiglass might have required. One the sides, I mounted the LEDs down the inner trim and then passed through the bottle bump in the center section
